Lately things have still been pretty crazy. I’m waiting for a few things to end lately like school, some other events, and so on. So much has been happening. Aiyaiyai.
But the Lord has really been doing so much in my life lately. Sooo much. For example, my car.
What can I say about the car?
My car is a running junkyard, basically.
Even so, it’s pretty nice to have a car! And the Lord knows I need a car and He’s constantly taking care of me in my car. You have no idea!
The other day, a group of classmates and I got together to study a French play script we had to come up with. After we we’re done, one of them walked me out and as it turned out, he was parked 2 spots away from me. Right before I took off, he called out to me, “Provi, pop you hood for a second. I want to show you something.” He pointed out my belt, which has been making a weird sound as of recent. He explained that it was the belt, what the tensioner was and what to do if I heard a snap, because the belt had gone, pull over because the power steering would go out immediately. Sometimes I’m distrustful of anyone and everyone who gives big advice about big things because you never know who knows what. But I listened very intently to what he said, and I trusted him. I considered what he said and thought to myself “Well, I hope we can take care of that sooner than that!”
That was Friday. Come Sunday, and in the morning I rise up and go to church. After the message is broughT forth I go up for prayer, and I received prayer for all of the things we are going through because it’s been pretty hard, and I gave my cares to the Lord and left for home. Only a few blocks away, as I turned onto one of the main roads, I heard an odd sound. I knew instantly was it was. So, I said to myself “I better pull over into this lot.” I did so, and when I popped the hood, the belt had snapped and been shredded as well. (Right before my power steering went out of course.)
You’re kidding, right?
I just started laughing because you know that was the Lord guiding me! I prayed before I called Dad and he took it surprisingly calm. Eventually, we left it there and got a mechanic to fix it later the next day.
God is so good.
Wait, it gets better.
(No, it really does.)
The same day my car breaks down, I’m scheduled for work. I definitly can’t make it because BOTH our vehicles are out. Yikes and I’m ….just….so….sad…that….I don’t…have to work…
I call my boss and let him know but then he says “I’ll pay for your taxi.”
The fare was 30 dollars!
Well, while were at work. he says to me “Oh, I got a little something for you.” Is it money? I jokingly say inside myself. I figure it’s prolly actually a new hat for work, because I’ve lost mine for a few days now.
Later, while were cleaning, he taps me on the shoulder and shows me a Macy’s gift card.
I gave him two really huge hugs.
He said it was for some new pants for work. I told him I already got some new pants. So he said use it for something else you need.
I knew that was the Lord. I couldn’t believe it.
I’ve since prayed over the card that I would use it wisely.
I still can’t believe it!
God is so good and I want him to bless Dane so much. I’m still amazed.
He is so good…it’s been so hard lately. But He’s been right beside me and us to make sure we have everything…
...and even a little more.
Thank you Lord. ;) 12 months ago
