I saw a post by Nicola over on her blog – EagleSight – which is a great blog I highly recommend.
Anyway, she wrote a post earlier and floated the idea of #TestimonyTuesday. It went down with a treat, and I loved the idea, so we’ll be doing our own #TestimonyTuesday right here on the BerryBunch.family blog.
Testimonies are so powerful because they are truths from our life. I love reading them, and look forward to reading many more.
So, as a little bit of a taster for this new, regular, feature, here’s an extra testimony (actually two today)…on a Thursday…which still starts with a “T”. So, it’s nearly the same…
Over our life we’ve been given a free car on two occasions.
The first time this happened, we’d bought a tiny little car, but it was really a 2 seater car. Granted, it had 5 seats and seat belts, but we were a family 5, so it was more than a bit of a squeeze. A young girl we knew encouraged her parents to give us a car that they didn’t need, so they did. It was amazing.
We had the car for a good number of years, and had many happy memories with that car.
The second time we were gifted a free car, was when we were both unemployed. Our car had been inspected by a soon to become trusted friend. He took one look and told us to scrap it. At the time, this filled us with something akin to a panic. We had to travel to interviews, none of which would be local. But, within hours we’d been load car by some friends and, within days, a couple – who had a car they could no longer use – offered their vehicle to us for free. They were so grateful that it was going to a good home, which it most certainly did.
We travelled all over the place with that, going on holiday, moving house and much more.
It needed an MOT (in the UK this is done yearly, and is akin to a basic test at a garage to ensure any vehicle is mechanically sound, and safe, for use on the roads). But we had lots of help paying for this too. God had gone one ahead of us, as ever.
God always knows our needs, way ahead of our own sight. So, we need to learn to trust the panic we have, was long known by God, who was never panicking.
So let’s keep trusting God. Because when things go wrong, He already knew about it, and had a plan for it – to make us more like Jesus.
All we need to do is keep trusting Him, because He has a very good view point.
