“Thank You” to the following folks who have agreed to pray for the bible study that begins Sunday evening, August 1st, 2010 in my home. I listed the four-fold goal or objectives of this bible study in my Wednesday, July 14th post.
There is one further objective that I am hoping to accomplish with this study – in time I hope it will grow into the Central Point Christian Fellowship of Longview, WA. In the meantime:
Thanks be unto our living God and unto you:

Stirling Pontiac-Buick-GMC Truck of Longview). I sat in the waiting room and watched one of my favorite reruns, Boston Legal. An older gentleman came in to wait for his rig also and we began talking about various things, including God.
Service Writer, Steve Harding, came in the waiting room to tell me my problem was a water-pump and belt and that it would cost with both parts and labor $400.00.
Thanks be to God, my spiritual growth through the Word, A. W. Pink’s The Sovereignty of God, and Jerry Bridges, Trusting God, I did not panic, but told Steve that I couldn’t have the work done now since I did not have the funds but I know that God will supply them and when God does we will make an appointment.
The older gentleman made the normal comments that you would expect, “Gee, that’s too bad, sorry to hear that, and I hope that works out for you.” I told him no worries; God will take care of it (I had talked with him already about the Lord). I got my keys told Steve, that God is in control and when He provides I will be back.
What a joy it was to call Steve right back and say, ‘Steve, as I shared with you God is in control and He has blessed me with the funds to take care of the car. He was stunned but made an appointment for me this coming Wednesday. Do you think God “broke” my water pump so I could have another shot (it has been months) at sharing God with Steve, my Service Advisor? I do. God is sovereign and God is in control.
Thank God the heat is gone. We are dropping back down to the mid 70’s, with clouds and even some rain promised next week. Praise God! I don’t like 90’s anymore, especially 98 and 99 degrees. That’s what Arizona is for isn’t it?
