“Won’t He do it!’
It was the 4th of July and my family and I decided to drive down to the country for the day. We were so excited about going to visit my husband’s family and being in his hometown, Heathsville, Virginia (2 1/2 hours away). My husband decided that he would drive and that we would take his truck. This is a trip that we will never forget!
Driving to the country is very relaxing. Once you get there, there is no traffic. You see lots of land, trees, corn fields, houses and very few stores or businesses. We drove up and down several country roads and made it safely to visit my husband’s family. We visited his mother, grandmother, sister and we were on our way to visit another sister when all of a sudden, we heard this noise. It was a noise that I don’t want to hear anymore this year. It was a flat tire! This is the third flat tire that the two of us have had over the past month. I think that it has something to do with the construction near our house.
So here we are, on the 4th of July in the country with a flat tire and no spare. It’s me, my husband, my daughter and my son stuck in the truck! (lol) We had been up and down the country roads, but the tire just happened to go out right by a tire shop. Yes! A tire shop! We were so excited however, it’s a holiday and the shop is closed. Let me tell you what God did!
We sat in front of the closed tire shop and prayed that God would make a way. Shortly after being in front of the shop, a man drives over and says, “I have a friend who works at this shop let me call him and see if he will come to open the shop for you.” He called his friend several times, but there was no answer. He waited there with us for a few minutes with hopes of reaching his friend. His friend never answered. Another man in a truck drives by the tire shop and decides to park on the side. The first guy who stopped to help us looks over and says, “that’s the owner of the building, let’s see if he can help.” The owner of the building calls the man who runs the tire shop. About twenty minutes later, the man who runs the tire shop came to the rescue along with his wife. His wife said that he was at home in the bed resting when they got the call that a family was stranded in front of their tire shop. He came, opened the shop, changed the tire, and we were so amazed at what God did. Out of all of the places that our tire could have been flat, it was flat in front of a tire shop. God brought everything that we needed to us. We didn’t have to do anything, but wait on the Lord!
God wants us to be still and know that He is God (Psalm 46:10). No matter what you are going through, be encouraged and know that God will do it! The last two times that I had a flat, God used my husband to come to the rescue. This time, He made it so that my husband couldn’t fix the problem only God could do it. He will use whoever He has to, in order to get a blessing to you. Keep praying, keep believing and know that GOD WILL DO IT!
Until next week . . .
