This Man! This Love!!

Let me tell you about this man, His name is Jesus!!!

Yesterday my daughter was in a car accident. She is fine. Car is a little crunched, but she is fine. That’s all I cared about. It’s just a car, and after all, that is why we have car insurance, and full coverage at that.

I knew that this week was going to be a challenge. I was up in the middle of the night, I’ve learned to cure my insomnia with intercession. So, I prayed! Then I was up at 3:30 this morning, I was getting picked up at 6 because of our logistical challenges. I was up so early that I got to spend some time with God, me & Him, snuggled up, eating breakfast together, He was speaking to me. He blew me away with Gen 32 & 33! I was seriously jumping out of my skin in rejoicedment (it’s a word).

Then I get a call from State Farm, but I missed it, I call them back. I’m talking to the lady, she’s got nothing for me and then all of a sudden, she says ‘oh, wait, I can’t talk to you about your claim’ I’m nervous now. What’s wrong? Is something wrong? OH MY WORD! She transfers me. I’m on hold for something like 6 hours (or 6 minutes, not sure) and the whole time I’m nervous! I’m reciting (outloud) ‘The Lord is my Right and Salvation, I am not afraid, I am not afraid, I am not afraid’. It’s even on my facebook! You can check!

So the guy is working on my claim, I’m still a little nervous, I’m praying while he’s typing!! And then he says ‘Iet’s get your car rental hooked up’. Now, I would have bet you money (good money) that I didn’t have car rental insurance, but somehow, some way, God worked it out for my good! I’m hooked up! I pick up the rental!

Let me tell you something about this man named Jesus.

He died on a cross to save me from… myself.

He died on a cross for you.

He has spared my life and my daughter’s life on more than one occasion (just yesterday)!

He blows me away with His love and His word.

All those things (and many many more) are enough.

But car rental insurance, that just takes the cake! He is my provider!!!

Why do I worry? I don’t know. I’m stupid.


I’m still blown away because this week’s scripture verse? Romans 8:28!
