Rom 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
My little fender bender, (well maybe not so little) of a couple of weeks ago was quite unsettling. I loved my van! But God has a way of working things out, and His way is often a way we would not choose on our own. We had been looking for a truck for our family for months, and just couldn't seem to find one in our price range that suited us. We just started a new home-based party bounce house rental business, and really needed a truck to haul the bouncers in. We were getting desperate. Then I wrecked the van :(.
As it turns out, we were able to take the check from the insurance company and buy a new (to us) truck, and keep the van to either fix up or sell. We've decided to sell it 'as is'. Banged up Chrysler Town & Country anyone?? :)
God has been so faithful to our family. It makes me wonder how we could ever doubt His plan when unexpected events come our way. Sometimes He answers our prayers before we even have a chance to pray them, and sometimes He makes us wait a while. But He always comes through!
I'd like to encourage you today to hold out and keep the faith, whatever situation your are facing. If you're a child of God, He will take of it all!
