Our Week - Deep Sigh

Weeeeell, it has been an interesting week here so far. I'm ready for the week to be over so we don't get hit by "bad thing" number 3#!! You know bad things ALWAYS happen in threes!!!!

Daniel had a volleyball game he was going to referee this past Tuesday. So, long story short, he took the van to work with him. So, he is driving probably 75 MPH up the highway when the van just slips out of gear. No warning. No nothing. Mind you, our van is only 4 years old and has less than 60,000 miles. So he has to pull over to the side of the highway and we are anticipating the mechanic to tell us today that we are going to have to purchase a new transmission. Very discouraging as we are just getting back on our feet financially. Daniel was a horrid crabby mess and I had to be the "reasonable" one which is frustrating.

But you know what? I'm not worried. We don't have the option to borrow money and we don't have the money to pay to fix it but I am confident it will work out. Daniel and I are doing our part right now and I just feel like I'm sitting here just eagerly anticipating seeing how God is going to take care of it. There is such freedom in knowing you are handling your finances according to Biblical standards. I'm almost excited to see how this is all going to fall out. I'm praying for God to take care of it. He knows what is going on with us, how we are trying to honor Him, and I have the faith of a mustard see that He will take care of it! (help mine unbelief! LOL)

So, I get another crabby call from Daniel yesterday. He received a traffic ticket while working yesterday. YIPPY SKIPPY!!! So that is another $75 we have to come up with in 2 weeks. BUT, again, God is in control and I have no doubt our faith is being tested right now.

I am praying that my faith and Daniel's faith will be strengthened by these things and that Daniel will see the power of God in this. ( ME TOO!)

Praise the Lord for He is Good - ALL THE TIME!

  1. Economic times are tough. Sorry to hear your van pulling that on you like that. :(

    My Dh can get grouchy about stuff too. But then again, I get grouchy as well when my house is a mess, lol!

    And once I got a $345 speeding ticket. Yeah, I was a bit upset over that one!

    I will be praying for you. (((hugs)))
