He’ll Do It Again

I’m not a big “things” person. I don’t have to HAVE the latest model of anything. You won’t find me in a line waiting to upgrade to the newest (fill-in-the-blank.) 

We live simple. Our house is small, built in the 1950s, and home to a lot of people, a dog, and three fish.  We don’t drive super fancy cars. Although, one of our cars is 13 years old and in her day she WAS fancy.  In fact that’s what we call her – “Fancy.”   . 

Two weeks ago I was driving our second car through a precarious construction zone and a fine young man in a Bigger-Than-Me-Chevy Silverado plowed right into my backside. No one was injured.  His truck suffered a minor dent.  The rear end of my van was crunched in and the damage was internal as well as external.  Our van, whom we affectionately called -“Roo” was totaled.

Today we went to collect our belongings from “Roo” and it was a sad experience. Kinda felt like we were saying goodbye to a family member.   

Thankfully – we no longer have a car payment. 

Thankfully – we have one car. 

Thankfully – we’re all alive.   

Every time I pray about this situation, I keep being reminded of all the times that God has taken care of us, especially in the midst of impossible situations.  Looking back, I can see that He has always provided for us.  It hasn’t been the latest, greatest, newest, hottest anything, but it has always been divine provision.  He has always taken care of us, and you know what?  He’ll do it again.  I truly believe that.  

We declared that truth in our worship gathering yesterday. .. 

I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

You made a way, where there was no way

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

– “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship

I don’t know what you may be going through, but if you’re reading this, chances are high that you too are facing a Red Sea,

a Lions Den,

a Goliath staring you down. 

I can’t quite figure out how we’re going to move seven people between ballet, baseball, school, church, and all points in between with a single car, that’s our Red Sea.  But I can look back and see times when God made a way where there was no way, and I dare say that if you look back on your life, you can do the same . 

So today, as He reminded me, I remind you that. . .

He’ll do it again.
