面包车电池事件VS大流行病危机

其中第一次我记得我当时真的与我的新发现愿意履行上帝的设计,我作为一个妻子是2012年夏季测试的。

我们的家庭正在走向默特尔海滩,SC休假几天。我们的儿子是8和我们的女儿是3。

格雷格和我装了面包车与所有我们需要的行程东西四溢。我们都在堆放和绑安全带我们。而当格雷格试图启动车子什么都没有。

他能够用他的老本田CRV跳电池,我们就上了路。当我们通过了高级汽车配件店,我随口提到,“如果你想停下来,让他们检查电池,这将是完全的罚款。”

但格雷格说,“不,我认为我们刚刚离开的门打开时间过长,当我们包装,它耗尽电池。我想我们会没事的。”

我决定要自觉地信任他,在那一刻相信上帝。我会宁可停下来检查电池。以前的我会要求我们这样做。但我没有惊慌,只是心满意足地喜欢读我的书。

当我们到了默特尔比奇,我们解压并探索美丽的公寓和海滩区。几个小时后,我们装回面包车去宵夜。车子就无法启动。

我们在一楼的停车库停放第一头。有对我们双方的汽车。有在我们面前没有墙,但有那是宽至少10至12英尺的大园景区。周围没有人。

我没有惊慌。我们不会有危险。我只是给Greg把微笑说:“你已经得到了这个!我信任你。” I gave the kids some Oreos and continued enjoying my book.

约5-10分钟后,一名男子走近格雷格,问他是否需要帮助。他说,他买12英尺跳线电缆连接2周前。他的妻子告诉他,他并不需要他们,他不应该把他们带来他们的行程。但他没有,反正。以防万一。

格雷格和这个人(谁肯定好像从主天使在刚刚完美的时间发送)得到了车开始。格雷格直接去沃尔玛和更换电池和我们去到晚餐和一个可爱的一周在海滩共进。

以前的我会发表演讲,鼓吹,民怨沸腾,扶住不满。以前的我会毁了整个晚上,也许整个星期了这一事件。

新我意识到,神为我们,当我信任他。在方面,我无法想象。他提示这个陌生人购买耗材,我们就需要2个星期前!?!?带他到我们在合适的时间。

我公司uldn’t help but wonder how many other times I panicked and tried to force things to go my way and missed out on God’s miracles and provision.

THE PANDEMIC

This past week, I have thought a lot about that day with the minivan battery.The way I trusted God and trusted Greg to figure things out and I just rested in their love and provision for me, no worries at all.

God doesn’t have to worry about unexpected things happening to Him, thankfully.He is sovereign.He is good.He is all-knowing and all-wise.

So here we all are, in the midst of something that could be frightening if we didn’t know God and didn’t have His love, provision, and promises.But He is with us.If we know Jesus, we are not in this alone.He is right here with us.

How much more can I trust God to provide for me right now than with the minivan incident?

I don’t have to figure everything out.I don’t have to know the plan.My job is just to focus on the things God has asked me to do: love Him and love others, share the gospel, and make disciples.And I can just go right on resting in His great love for me and in His provision.

No, I don’t know God’s plans or exactly how things will work out.But I know Him.And I know He has me.He has us.And I trust Him.

  1. Did your Husband learn to trust your instincts and take them seriously?I see so many men arrogantly putting their wives advice away like it does not matter.

    1. Ida,

      My husband values my perspective and feelings greatly.He always takes them into consideration and treats me like a queen.

      But I also trust him and know he will take great care of us.I no longer try to bulldoze him, control him, or force my way.

    2. Ida,

      PS- If you are in a difficult situation where you feel like you don’t have a voice in your marriage and you want to talk about it, please let me know.I have some resources that may be a blessing.
