Luke and I were in a car accident on Friday night and thankfully none of us (including our little bitty daughter Ayealyn) was injured. However, our car was severely damaged and I am expecting that the insurance company will total the car. The downside to all this is that the car we were driving was our only reliable car (hence the reason we were driving that particular one, lol :)) and so we will be having to go through the process of replacing this car. Thankfully, we were not at fault so the other person’s insurance will pay for it. It is still an ordeal that provides the temptation for worry.
As I was relating my worries to my best friend, she was able to make some very good points how I needed to be content with however God chooses to provide for us during this time. She also later brought up how silly my worries really are because I had just finished giving thanks for Luke, my wonderful husband. I was saying how God just knew exactly what was right for me and He gave me Luke! 🙂 As I said that, she said, “See, if God can do that with the person that you are spending your life with, then can’t He do that with the car that you need?” and I know of course He can! 🙂
The thought occurred to me that if I was to parallel how God gave me Luke with how God is going to provide for us in this situation, then most likely, I will still be giving thanks for God’s provision next year and the year after that. I don’t want to limit God by throwing out a list of how He could provide, but I do want to rest in the fact that God’s provision will be exactly what we need and His provision will go above and beyond anything I could ask or think.
He will provide more than just transportation! I’m sure! He will provide a blessing for us. Just as He gave me my husband Luke as a blessing that I could not have asked for or even thought of, God will provide in this situation. He will do it again! 🙂
