For the last year, my husband and I have been down to one working car. He works from 5:45 a.m. until 2 p.m. (ish). I’m retired. Having one car doesn’t usually pose a problem except on Fridays and Sundays – Friday to go to Bible study at our church and Sunday to actually go to church.
Thus, I get up at 5 a.m. on Fridays and at 4:30 a.m. on Sundays (have to do something with my hair!) in order to take him to work so I can have the car for the day.
I didn’t have Bible study this past week so didn’t need to get up at the crack of dark in order to have the car. He’s having surgery Tuesday and, therefore, I won’t have to take him to work for several weeks whenever I need the car.
Today – I didn’t want to do it. I didn’t want to get up just one last time to take him to work so I could have the car for the day. I really didn’t want to do it!
But, my desire to be at church far outweighed my desire to stay home. So I went. And I’m glad I did. God always blesses us when we are faithful to him. Always.
Lord, thank you that you put that desire in my heart to be with you in your house today. I know I’m a better person for being there. Thank you for meeting me at my needs. You are my everything!
