Today, I'll tell you about something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).
Although I can't really explain everything about the issue at this time, I will let you know that I went quite a distance away, here in Ontario, to pick up a van I own.
Why it was there, I can't explain about at this time. However, I will let you know that I was happy being able to pick up my van, there... even though I had to drive up there twice in the last month, drive home back to Windsor each time, and then eventually, take a train to the area, and take a taxi to go pick it up.
When I went to see my van, I was so very upset. That is also something I can't explain at this time.
Once I was able to drive it, I drove to an area in which I lived many years ago, when I was young.
As I drove past the home I lived in, I also drove past a few other homes of friends. This touched my heart, and made me happy.
Even though there was only one (1) friend I could text, I did so, so that my friend could know that I thought about not just the home, but my friend as well.
It was nice hearing back from my friend. For this, I am truly thankful.
As I drove into another area, I was on a busy street.
I realized that my van seemed to be overheating, just as I saw a retail store where I could turn in to pick up coolant, and I did park there. Yes, I realized that there couldn't have been much coolant, since it was overheating.
As I parked my van, it massively overheated!
When I went into the store, the male salesperson carried out a couple of jugs of coolant for me. As we approached my van, he suggested I needed to see a mechanic that was only a couple of doors away. So, I did.
The mechanic let me know about the problem. Since I couldn't stay in that area for the few days it would have taken for him to obtain what was needed to fully repair the problem, he did a temporary repair for me.
For this, I was truly thankful. And, still am.
You see, it took several hours to have my van repaired enough for me to be able to drive home. And, I planned to see a friend, also.
And, even though this horrible issue happened, I didn't feel afraid. Even though I was upset, I didn't have fear. And, was thankful that I hadn't gone directly onto a highway, to head home. If I had, then my van would have overheated on the highway, and I would have been hurt even worse.
Thinking about fear, made me recall Isaiah 41:10, " Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
Amen! He was with me!
He not only didn't make me fear as my van overheated and needed repair, He also gave me strength, and helped me.
Because... He is my God. And, I am truly thankful to Him.
Is He your God?
Have you gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ?
If not, do it now. Don't wait.
Come to Christ, today.
You'll be blessed. And, you will not fear, but will be strengthened and helped.
Until next time...
