God is good

Last night when I left work, one of my tires was flat. I have an air compressor that I keep in my back seat. Its very small, you plug it into your lighter and it is very powerful (I highly recommend these for everyone). So I called my husband to ask him if he thought it would be ok to air it up and drive home on it. He said yes, so I started to get out my air compressor and get it all plugged up. A woman in a SUV drove by and asked me if I had a spare tire, I told her yes I did, then she asked if I needed any help changing the tire. I said no I could handle it. But the offer was so nice and really meant a lot to me. Had I needed to actually change the tire I definitely would have needed her help because I have never changed a tire. I have only observed. So I am thankful that she offered.

This morning when I got up the tire still had air in it so I figured it had a slow leak but I couldn't see nails or anything. One of my other tires has a slow leak in it, its on the drivers side so I air it up every couple days. So I took my car to a tire place not far from my house to ask them if they could find the leak and fix it. I knew that if both tires had to be replaced they are the cheapest, so I was figuring on spending $30-$50. They found the leaks and were able to fix them both so I only had to pay $10. I was so relieved. God is so good.

Just last night my husband and I were talking about money. I was starting to stress because we had planned on buying a fence so the money was in the checking account but we still haven't done it yet. I don't like money to sit in my checking account because then we are tempted to spend it. We just started a savings account about 3 weeks ago so we do have some money saved but it is supposed to be for vacation. The brakes on my husbands truck are grinding really bad and it has just started in the last week and has progressively gotten worse. So we have to get new brakes on his truck. He is just happy that we have the money to do it with, but I was stressing out about it. He pointed out that if this happened a couple months ago, we wouldn't be able to do it at all, so he is grateful that God has provided us with the funds to do so. We are finally getting our hearts right about money, it just taking longer with me. God is really good to us even though I don't deserve it.

Hi Sally,
I'm glad that God blessed you in so many ways this week. I love it when He shows us He loves us individually.

I was excited to see your comment about reading the devotional book with me. I hope you will be able to join me and that we will be able to support each other.
