Faithful

Let me tell you how faithful God is.
Saturday morning I attended a small group bible study with some of the other moms that attend my church. One of the thoughts that kept coming up was that God grows us through trials, and that He guides us gently through them.
Saturday night, I rip off the door of the van. Again. We had gone to look at two different vans the night before to replace Old Bessie, but one had sold, and one had ended up in the shop. The door to Bessie was NOT going back on this time, and I had no further leads on a vehicle in our price range that was big enough to fit our family and would be reliable for us. As I tried to keep my kids calm and figure out what the next step should be, my mom went inside to find some help for my dad- who was making a valiant effort to reattach the door that I hulked off.
God worked it out that the people who came out to help had a relative that was selling a SUV in our price range, and put us in contact with them. My mom talked to them and got their information, David called on his break from work and set up a meeting for Sunday, and I tried not to get my hopes up.
Fast forward to today. I have a SUV that is in FANTASTIC shape. I can safely drive my kids around. The doors don’t fall off, and there is no trick I need to use to shut any of them. It runs quietly and doesn’t sound like it is going to shake into pieces. We all fit in it and are comfortable.
God is so good. He uses the people around us in awesome ways. He takes the rough times and uses them to draw us closer to Him. He hears our desperation, and says, “I’ve got this.” He provides in ways that are surprising and awe inspiring. He uses things like the door falling off of the van to lead us to the vehicle He had in mind for us.
Isaiah 40:11- He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.
