I am a firm believer 'Everything Happens For A Reason.' Sometimes if we step back and look at the situation we realize what it is, other times not so much.  I know without a doubt, God watches over everything I do, He carries me so many times when I am dragging.
This week, plans were totally thrown out the window.  We had planned to leave for Arkansas today.  Last Wednesday on the way home from church our car started acting up, kinda coughing, did not want to go up a hill, wasn't sure if we were going to make it home.  I quickly put the phone away and started talking to my Lord.  'Please let us make it home,' would you believe it never acted up again.  I told Stan we needed to get it to the mechanic and let him check it out.
So the next morning we took it over and left it, even though he said he probably couldn't get to it until today.  It never acted up or even hesitated Thursday morning, but of course I had already had a conversation with the Lord, told Him I needed His help once again, and that I would give him all the honor and praise for it. Once again he answered prayer.  We were able to pick up our car today, the fuel filter was stopped up.  The mechanic said he had used a 25 p.s.i. air hose and blew into the filter, no air would come through it.  He said the car should not of been running at all, that the filter was completely stopped up.  I wish I would of been with them, I would of let him know it was answered prayer, that the Man upstairs was taking care of it for me.  I am so glad that it messed up when it did and we were not on the road traveling. And it was only a $35 fix.  Arkansas bound this Friday. Thank you Jesus!

You know sometimes He does things to get our attention, I am one of those He has to hit up side of the head.  Usually before we go to Arkansas, I am running around trying to get things done, going crazy, not relaxing until I am ready.  This weekend has been so peaceful without the car, and we have accomplished so much in the yard.  Projects that we had been wanting to do but never seemed to have time.  We are not finished but we are well on our way.  Even got my little red wagon seeded with flowers, now praying they will come up!  
Life is so good and sometimes we need to listen to our Heavenly Father and just slow down and enjoy it! 

Thank you Jesus!  Do you know Him?

'Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.'    Revelation 3:20

until next time...nel


  1. I do believe God orchestrates our steps. So glad you were able to get the car repaired!

  2. So thankful to read your testimony this morning. God is so good and I love to watch Him work in my life and in my friends' lives. Thank you for sharing.
