For some it’s still early, but for me, it’s 9:34 p.m. and I can’t sleep. The thoughts racing around in my head keep me from rest. It’s like they’re playing racquetball up there or something. It’s been crazy since my accident – my car was totaled and finding a replacement vehicle in a week was challenging. But I did it with the help of my friends.
In my car shopping adventures, I realized a few things. For months before the accident, I was doing all I could to rework my finances to start saving for things that could become urgent…repairs, new car, etc. In the midst of the car accident and working with body shops, insurance companies, etc. I realized I am the recipient of several blessings. 1. Car accident and no one was injured. 2. The car that I was worried about replacing in the coming years was totaled. 3. I got an excellent deal on my new to me vehicle, allowing me money to put into saving.
I got a blessing disguised as a catastrophe. I wonder how many times God has done something like this in my life, but I overlooked it for one reason or another? It’s crazy if you think of how many gifts may have gone unnoticed. I think I’m just humbled by how great God is…I noticed this, but how many times have I forgotten what Jesus did on that cross for all of us paying for sins we haven’t even committed yet, with his death on the cross. We are so blessed. Regardless of what we face, there is a God that loves us more in a moment than anyone ever will in a lifetime.
These recent challenges remind me that God is in control. He knows exactly what he’s doing and he WILL stand beside us as we do the best we can. The Lord showed favor on me these last two weeks and I can only share with you all that trusting in God and casting your worries and cares to him is the greatest thing you can do.
May God bless you and keep you all the days of you life. When you’re scared and fearful, happy and jaunty, depressed and anxious, and when you’re angry – invoke the power of the Holy Spirit to make you all that God has intended you to be.
