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!!!) Well...now 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!
