I recently had some self inflicted body damage on my car. I was so angry at myself, although it wasn’t totally my fault. Nevertheless, I had to wait to get my car fixed. I didn’t have $1000 just laying around to fix the damages. I was really starting to stress about how I would get the car fixed. Last week, I drove my car close to empty for nearly two days. I had the money for gas, but I kept procrastinating. I know, I’m working on it. Finally, I left work one day last week and had to make a B line to the gas station.
I scolded myself on the way there for being so silly to wait this long to get gas. Little did I know, it was all a part of the plan. A guy pulled up in a big Ford truck and asked if I needed body work done on my car. I usually don’t entertain those types of conversations. However, that day I did. He told me that he could fix my car (in the gas station parking lot) for just $200. I’m a very skeptical person, but that day I decided to go with it.
Long story short, he had my car looking like brand new. You can’t even tell the damage. The guy did it in less than 15 minutes. That day was such a blessing and it came at a time when I really needed a reminder from God. Sometimes God allows us to go through situations that will make us ask, “Why me?” The answer should be, “Why not me?” However, God still let me see the silver lining in my cloud.
Never give up on God. He never fails us. Everything He does is amazing and in perfect order. Speaking of amazing, make sure you check out the beautiful new gospel ballad from John Patrick Adams, “I’m Amazed”. This song truly speaks to the glory of God. He sees us and knows what we’re going through. We just have to trust Him. He’s just that amazing.
