August 28th, I was in first car accident. It was around 9 pm when I was travelling home from working the late shift. I had my phone on speaker, so that I could listen in on a master class. I have a 40 minute commute to and from work. I had everything set up before I even drove off of campus, because a distracted driver is a dangerous driver.
The master class had just begun as I was merging into the far right lane. I stayed back a bit in case the semi that was in the southbound lane needed to go northbound instead. After a minute, it seemed as though the semi was truly going southbound, so I felt comfortable speeding up. I was almost up the ramp, when the semi changed its mind, and merged into my lane.
I was terrified, but so thankful to God that my son was not in the car, and that I was not hurt. My car was deemed a total loss by insurance, and while I had gap insurance, my car had previous damage to it, so gap informed me that they would not be covering the difference.
I was distraught.
Not only was I shaken up by the ordeal, but I now had to get a new vehicle with no money to put down. I also still owed money on my old car. I could dwell and dwell on this, so instead I made the conscious decision to take my problems to the Lord. My circumstances were telling me that I was in a worst position than before. The enemy was trying to stop me from getting the message from the master class. The enemy took my car, but my cousin had a spare that I was able to use. I stayed prayed up, and God blessed me with a better and safer car for my family. God allowed me to get a much better deal on the car loan than my previous one. God pushed me to sign up for the program that resulted from the master class, and I’m already seeing results. I put in some more hours at work to cover what was left to pay on my old loan, and to my surprise, God blessed me again.
I received a letter from the car loan company telling me that my account was closed and paid in full. Hallelujah! I thanked God because I knew it was by His will. This was all a couple of weeks ago, so I had thought that the previous car loan was done. This morning when I checked my mail, I had a note from the loan company. One letter was telling me that my account was paid in full, And that they owed me money! The second letter was a check from them. I began to weep as I was reading the letter because it was so unexpected, and I am just so grateful for our Provider.
Today, I urge all of you to stop and give thanks to Him. He takes care of all of our needs, and makes sure that we are not without.
I just wanted to share with you all, that staying steadfast in your faith, is the greatest peace of all.
