My God! My God! My God! My God! He is so awesome! “Oh, how I love Jesus! Oh How I Love Jesus! Oh How I Love Jesus because He first loved me!
Day 5 of a 30-day fast with Holiness Ministry Temple International (with Apostle Shirley Brown) and all I can say is, “Thank You Jesus! Thank You Lord!”
Today was a very busy, yet productive day. I left out at noon and I just returned home a little after 7 p.m. to give a praise report of what my God has done!
After running a few errands, I met with one client to deliver her books and then a second client to drop off edits and pick up corrections! (That’s what happens when you work with a local publisher 😁)
Then I ran a few more errands, including helping a family member and even dropping off something for a senior (on behalf of my mom).
Needless to say, I only had 2 more stops and that’s when my tire light appeared. Knowing I was in need of a driver side tire, I paid close attention to that one as I ran into Walgreens (where, by the way I bought four items that totaled $5 & change but paid only $0.10 with my rewards. Just saying…as I continue to brag on my God!)
When I returned to the vehicle, I quickly checked Google to find that Pep Boys was closed. So, I looked at the Shell gas station, which was to the left.
However, I’ve learned not to go backward but instead press forward so I was led to drive to another Shell gas station further away (BUT it was before me not behind me)!
I took my time and pulled in safely, by the grace of God! The tire spot was closed, so I sat still before calling my dad to see his location.
He made a few calls to see who could assist me…but to no avail. So, I started pulling the things out my trunk as I prepared to change this tire myself (even in a skirt)! I just had to make sure there was a jack in the trunk.
The rain was falling heavier so I was led to slowly pull my Jeep under the shade. Even though I wasn’t getting gas, there was no need to try to change a tire in the rain.
I backed my vehicle on one side and realized I was still in the rain, so I drove to the other side. Not even 3 minutes after pulling out the tire, this white van pulled up and the gentleman offered to change my tire. Turns out he’s a mobile mechanic 😁 (That’s my God!)
As he wheeled his professional lifter toward the vehicle, I raised my hand in total adoration to God!
He said, Yes, praise Him!” Then he asked me what church I attend. We chatted for a minute and that’s when he told me that he was heading to the other Shell gas station at the corner but was led to this one (can’t remember exactly why BUT GOD)!!
Not only did Mr. James replace the passenger side tire, but he checked the air in all my tires to make sure I was good. Isn’t that just like God?
So I just stopped by, after months of blogging, to encourage you to keep moving forward and trust God to supply all your needs. He’s faithful like that.
