Seeing God work this morning!

 April 6, 2021

This morning we had an interesting incident that reminded us of God's love for us, and how important it is we trust in Him.

Gail was headed to town to run an errand.  He needed to take the mail which had his roping entry in it that had to be postmarked today.  So it was a twofold trip to town.  He hadn't been gone long when he called to say he had forgotten the mail. 

My response? (Well....maybe I am learning.)  I wasn't negative but said, "Guess we'll make another trip in later.  It happens.... we all forget things." (It is twenty miles to town.)

On the way home one of his partners for the roping called to say he wasn't going to be able to go rope with Gail or go to the roping!!

Wow!  God had it all worked out.  IF Gail had remembered the mail and mailed the entry form, he would have been out several hundred dollars for their roping entry.   

  Proverbs 3:5-6 

 Trust in the Lord with all your heart

    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[a]

Couple of lessons here:

1.  When things don't go as you planned, TRUST God. He is in control.

2.  When things don't go as you planned, do the right thing and respond in the right way and your path will be straight not stained with sin.  

We can be so thankful for God's Word to guide and teach us how we are to live our lives.  We are truly blessed by Him!

Have a good day!
