The Truck

Well, the truck God provided (though the generosity of an elder at SPC) is now good to go. New tires, new brakes, new spark plugs and wires plus a few other things and it passed inspection with flying colors!

I have already used it to get the bicycles up from Princeton and I am sure it will come in handy often for other jobs like that. It is amazing how God works for us and how we often overlook His guiding Hand in our lives. As I said in an earlier post, I was not happy to make a "useless" trip into New York to look at a truck that ended up being sold while we were on the way to see it, but it WAS God directing the path. I now have a serviceable truck for less than half the money I was planning to spend.

How many times do we get mad at God because He doesn't answer our prayers the way we expect Him to? We don't have a clue was is best for us and He does. Therefore, don't let your preconceived notions of how God should answer our prayers get in the way of our thankfullness when He does answer them (just not the way we expected!)

Kepp on praying and keep on trusting God to give you the right answer!
