Follow Up To Totaled Van

This devotional reading from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young was so perfect for right now...
"Do not fear your weakness, for it is the stage on which My Power and Glory perform most brilliantly. As you persevere along the path I have prepared for you, depending on My strength to sustain you, expect to see miracles-and you will. Miracles are not always visible to the naked eye, but those who live by faith can see them clearly. Living by faith, rather than sight, enables you to see My Glory."
After the van was totaled on Sunday, our biggest concern has been something to rent that would be big enough to get us on our way to spend the holidays with our family. We really needed a miracle. And a miracle did happen...Steve searched the state and could find NOTHING large enough to fit our family for this trip. A desperate email to a company south of Denver turned out to be the miracle. Just Monday they had received a vehicle that would work great for this trip. And since they were not expecting to receive this vehicle, it had not been rented out...of course, I know that is because God sent it just for us.
So we are getting to go and looking forward to this special time that we have planned on for over two years.
I look forward to catching up with you all when we are home.
Have a beautiful and blessed Christmas.

    My husband is a lawyer and I was asking him about your situation and he said the car wash's insurance should pay for a new van. not just what it is currently valued at. Hope you are in a new ride soon!

  10. I'm so happy it was His will to provide for you to visit your family! I was thinking perhaps it happened to keep you off the roads or something, but most likely He was just increasing your faith. :o) Praising God with you! Did you ever hear more of what the carwash worker's excuse was? If he wasn't intoxicated it would be neat to hear his story!

  11. And I hope you have a wonderful wonderful Christmas with your family!
