The following is a post from my blog from last December. I want to share this with you to remind you how faithful God is! And what better time, than just a few days before Christmas!
I told Phil that I had just paid the mortgage so the bank account is low. I prayed and prayed that it would not be more than $100 as this is the amount of cash Phil had. As Phil left to go try to get the van started, a neighbor offered to tow it home for $25 if we needed him to, this took a huge load off. Fortunately, Phil was able to get the van home. Diagnosis, a bad battery. Thank you Lord…the $100 should be enough to cover a new battery! So I followed Phil to Advance Auto and they ran the diagnostics computer and determined it needed a new alternator. Oh boy! I thought. Well, I guess the van will just have to wait until Phil’s next paycheck.
I was picking myself up off the floor from shock when Phil called and told me that it was going to be $200 to buy the part for the van…Yes, you heard that right…$200. That’s the $100 Phil had plus the $100 the lady gave me! There is no question in my mind that God sent that money to us.
This afternoon Phil took the bad alternator to the parts store and to our surprise it was still under warranty! So the van will not cost us anything to repair, just some labor on my handy husband’s part 🙂
