No car+no money=gift

>I had the privilege at one point in my life to have a car given to me. It was a Gold and rusted pontiac sunbird(Imagine all that beauty). It was basically a car that no one would ever want… That is, unless you had no car. When you have no car, even the ugliest one on the road is the greatest thing in the world. You can go to work and make money so you can fix it when it eventually breaks (yea it will). The windows probably wont work and the air, air whats that! Your lucky if the heat works. I guess I can say that i have been there. I know how it feels to only have one car. I know how it feels when that car breaks and the desperate feeling you get hoping that it isn’t a major problem. I have also had the opportunity to give a car away and help pay for another. What makes it more amazing for me is that I know how it feels to get that (busted) car that you couldn’t live without. Well you could live, you would just be a lot thinner from walking everywhere.
So an amazing thing happened. I had some… Continue reading

>Don’t Make Sense

>So God is so amazing, Why? Well let me tell you. Nothing that He does ever makes any sense. And really who am I to understand God . Is it even possible? He is so Great and has everything planned out, to work out perfectly. Life does not go on by any means easy and perfect. There is always something that is going on and falling apart and God is still always there. Okay so He is God and He knows everything. So is He standing there watching me going “ohh come on make the right choice”, Just like we watch children when they dont know we are watching them, just to see what they do when they think no one is around? I don’t know, I kind of like to think that He is. And just like us, maybe He is happy when we do the right thing. But Still God makes the impossible possible! It says in 1st Corinthians, that the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than Man’s strength. The words Foolish and weak and God just don’t seem like they go together. I think its just a way of putting it in a way that we can understand it. Of course God is not foolish or weak, But that is how much greater than us He is. Our Wisest is still only as foolish to him.
God takes situations in my life and says “Here, have this”, even though it makes no sense. I lost my wife,Rachael, a year and a half ago. And somehow God brought me to a place where I was thankful for Him, and In love with Him. Now He has brought an amazing person into my life that I’ll get to spend it with, and to me it makes no sense. I lost my job. I was making good money on a terrible shift, and it was a blessing from Him. Then I lost that job, and that was a blessing from Him, I was able to spend the entire summer serving and spending time with Alyssa, And doing ministry that I love. It makes no sense. Now I get a better job with better hours in an economy that is broken, It makes no sense. Sure it made less sense while I was going through it, and at times it was difficult to serve, to give money, and to be positive. But obedience to God always pays off, Because He works for the good of those that love him. Right now My Future wife is 3000 miles away and when I talk to her it always seems that we are learning the same things! For some reason God decided to seperate us for 3 months, to teach us the same thing! It doesnt make sense, But one thing is for sure, God’s plan never makes sense to me. So I am going to trust him. He’s got it all together and it’s all for a reason. So like it says at the end of 1st Corinthians chapter 1 “Let Him who boasts, boast of the Lord”, So I will just give Him all the credit, since He did it all. And its all so that he will get the glory. Maybe your going through something that is difficult. Just trust in him and obey, And He will suprise you and bless you for it, even when it makes no sense.
