8 Ways God Sufficiently Provided

stepping stones

Over the past five years since my son’s type 1 diabetes diagnosis, God sufficiently provided through what I like to call divine deliveries. I can think of so many I’m just going to list some right here to give you some examples of what I’m referring to:


My background in health allowed me to recognize the signs of this disease early, which kept my son out of a medical emergency at diagnosis. Who knew the career path I chose back at 17 would later help save my son?

2. Another T1D mom

Another mom, who was a veteran of taking care of her son with diabetes, came to my rescue. She taught my son’s summer camp teachers how to take care of their first camper with diabetes so I could return to work. Who knew that this mom I met while I was at work would become a good friend and would later help me out in such a big way?


God sufficiently provided a teenager from our church with type 1 who was willing to babysit for us. My husband and I hadn’t been out to dinner alone in so long, and it was hard for me to trust anyone with my son. But having a babysitter who understood diabetes firsthand helped me step out of my comfort zone so we could have date nights again.


We have never been financially put out due to the cost of diabetes. This was a big fear of mine in the beginning, but every year there seems to be an insurance plan I can pick that makes sense for us financially.


A Dexcom sensor failed, and another T1D mom swooped in with a backup until more could ship to us. This example alone takes the cake! (Carb free, of course.)


A new acquaintance at church shared with me that his wife has type 1. She became my best friend, and she understands like no one else what my son feels and what he will go through. (She may or may not be the one who started this blog!)



My kids’ school has the best nurse you could ask for. She takes care of my child like I do, and she works in tandem with me to keep him safe and learning. God sufficiently provided for my son at school.


Two years after my son was diagnosed, my nephew was diagnosed as well. Then my knowledge about diabetes helped my sister-in-law with what they were going through. What a gift I can give when someone else is newly diagnosed—a gift that was given to me many years before.

I could go on forever!  

Friend, these are not coincidences. God already knows what lies ahead and when to place that stone so you can take the next step. 

In the beginning of our experience with diabetes, I didn’t even know what to pray for. But in God’s true nature, He’s bigger than my boldest prayers could have ever been. Of course, I still pray for a cure, but until then I delight in God’s deliveries!

This beautiful verse sums up these deliveries in an amazing way.

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8

Sometimes God gives you what you need before you even know you need it. The placement is perfect. The people you meet and when you meet them matters. His grace is sufficient and so are His divine deliveries!

What is something you did not pray for, but God delivered just what you needed?

How can you look back and see God’s perfect timing throughout your chronic disease? Jot down a list of things as you think of them this week and give thanks to Him.

Lord, thank You for Your longstanding provision. Thank You for always watching out for what I need next when I don’t even know myself. Help me to remember when I’m in the middle that You are sufficiently providing what I need to make it to the end. In Your name I pray. Amen.
