A Prayer Hearing God

9 Jul

I don’t have a lot of time to write.

But I have been struggling with trusting God as far as purchasing a car. In fact I had much less difficulty trusting that God was sovereign during the robbery than I have trusting Him for finding a vehicle.

They are so expensive here. I am talking almost double.

So I have been worrying and trying to figure it out on my own. Until last week. Someone encouraged me to pray. Shocker. But I actually did.

Then today I got a call out of the blue from someone I had met last weekend at the family camp who was thinking of us and found a Volvo V70 2001 with 55k on it for a crazy good price – 85000 rand.

Anyway, my jaw dropped.

I was afraid to ask. It just seemed like such an answer to prayer. But I knew I had to ask anyway.

Is it automatic?

They just don’t have many automatics here. And you don’t want to be driving in South Africa if I have to drive a stick. Anyway, God is way too good and way too in control because, it is!

Maybe you can pray I’ll learn my lesson. I have a feeling I will have to learn it again, sometime soon.
