I am waiting...
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 1 Peter 5:6
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philipians 4:6
I am so tired. I don't even know why I am still up. Monday when I got back from California all my anti-freeze from my car leaked out while I was running an errand. That made me a little nervous, but I was able to make it back to the mission. I have not been able to take a look at what the problem could be till earlier today (tech. yesterday.) When I went out to go work on it my mechanic friend Brad was out, and he graciously assisted me in finding out what the problem was. The water pump is bad. I thought it was pretty cool because he showed me what I would basically have to do to fix it, but I am not sure if it really is in my league. He gave me a price quote of about $300 to $350 but I am so strapped for cash right now that that offer looks overwhelming. I know the Lord has promised to supply all of my needs, but it seems that I have so many of them these days. I really need to be thankful because God has been so good to me these days too. Along with the needs I have also been given great blessings. Great blessings! I am so tired! I just have to believe that the Lord will show me what to do concerning this car. I have long felt that having a car and a PC where two great assets in this modern world. PCs are a cinch to me, but my mechanical skills could be lacking compared to my understanding of the digital world...
By the way, I have a maroon 1988 Ford Escort plastered with bumper stickers from front to back (as you can tell from my picture.)
I need to figure something out. I don't know what the Lord will do, but I am sure He will take care of me, as 1 Peter 5:7 says.
