Having two vehicles in a family with two adults is not a very big deal to many. But today we were reminded that it is God who watches out for us. Steve ‘ s car ended up in the shop this morning and we were down to one car. My daughter wakes up with a stomachache and after observing her, I feel strongly that I couldn’t push her to go to school. So am with her home and about 1pm, I remembered I didn’t have any milk in the house. Took my daughter …and on my way to grab some quick milk, I hear this repeated noise. Eventually, I stopped to look cos it was getting louder. I had a completely flat tire. I was right by WarMart so I pulled in. We were in there for three hours which means my daughter would have been stranded at school 2:30pm cos Steve didn’t have a car either to pick her up. I had to get a new tire and thankfully for warranties cost me only $10. But the biggest miracle is how I end up with my daughter home when otherwise we would have ended up in a situation. I am so thankful to God for great and small ways He orders our days. We can’t really depend on things. Our God is do dependable.
Psalm 59:16-17 (NIRV) But I will sing about your strength. In the morning I will sing about your love. You are like a fort to me. YOu keep me safe in times of trouble. 16 You give me strength. Ising praise to you. God, YOU are like a fort to me. You are my God, and I can depend on you.
