God's Way

God has an interesting way of doing things...

Ya see... I've been praying for a while about getting my car paid off. I owe over 2 years on it and I just kept feeling like God wouldn't have me here for 2 more years. And when I say here, I mean in the States. But I knew that as long as I had that stinkin' car payment then I couldn't go anywhere... I didn't make enough to pay extra... it wasn't gonna be worth it to try and sell it... and so I just prayed about it...

Well on Thursday, I did this

funny, right? :) So, they say that it's more than likely totaled since the air bag deployed and my radiator was messed up in the process...  (P.S. I was totally fine!!!) my car is probably paid for! And now I just have to pray and see what this means. Do this mean go?

You see, over the last couple weeks I've heard the term, "Get out of the boat" about 4 times in 4 different situations. Referring to Peter. How Peter FIRST had to just get out of the boat with COMPLETE faith that Jesus would keep him from drowning.

How do I trust God and have faith as long as I sit in my little boat of normal life here in Union City? So, I wonder if this is His (not so) gentle nudge to get me to GO? But, the scary part.... WHERE? Where do I go? How do I know which direction to step in? I am so weak in faith..

I do love how God will take extreme measures to get me to see His ways! I'm just amazed that He cares enough to take those extreme measures! Hopefully one day I will know His voice well enough to listen to His whispers so He doesn't have to scream! :) I'm so stubborn...

But I rest in this verse... Proverbs 21:19 You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. NLT

And when I falter from the calling God has placed on my life, He reminds me by this verse... Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.

I can't wait to see what God has in store for me...although sometimes I'm too scared to get out of the boat!


  1. Oh this is very very exciting. When I saw you had a wreck on FB I was glad you were ok, it never dawned on me that God was up to something. He will show you the right direction to go! When we've had to chose where to go in ministry it was always clear to us, either through that certain peace or through other ways that we were headed right where He wanted us to be. Other times we have seen Him block certain paths we thought were the right ones, only to find out He had a different direction in mind. I will be praying that you know that you know that you know which steps to take!




  3. I don't know what else to say but "wow". Can't wait to see what He has for you next. Love you and we are praying for wisdom and guidance. Come see us (or wait, maybe we will have to come get you)?!?
