There was no time today to share what was on my heart, so if you are still willing to continue reading, I’ll share it here. Friday, I was reminded of God’s provision in my life in a very concrete way. I had to run to AutoZone because I have had a reverse light out on my car for about 2 months. I’ve been slack at replacing it and had some time on Friday afternoon so I was going to check something off the to-do list.  On the way there, my car starting acting very strange and cutting off, the gages were on and off, radio and air conditioning too. I nursed the car to AutoZone and went inside to get my light bulbs and when I came back out, the car was dead. I got AutoZone to check the battery and they figured out the alternator was dead. Now I was in quite the hard place. My M was in Columbia for the weekend with the 2.0s and I had a car that wasn’t going anywhere. I called a friend who is a mechanic and he suggested a friend of his who works at York Tech. The friend was able to work on the car on Friday night if I could get the part. AutoZone had the part and AAA got me to York Tech. My friend came over to York Tech and the two of them got my alternator in the car in a little over an hour.

It was a huge reminder to me of how God works in our lives even when we aren’t paying attention. It also reminded me that we have a choice in our reactions to our situations. I could have been mad and frustrated and could have let a dead alternator ruin my weekend, but instead, I decided to focus on all the ways that God protected me and provided along the way. Men, we cannot always choose our circumstances, sometimes things happen that we do not want to deal with or go through. But we can choose how we look at it and how we react to the situation we find ourselves in. Keep your eyes on the Father and choose joy.

Polymer Out.
