I love how God works

This winter, our lawnmower died. Monday we picked it up from the shop. Tuesday, Stephen mowed our lawn for the first time this spring.

Today, Stephen started it and the engine completely locked up. He called a mechanic friend of ours to see if he knew anyone selling a motor that would fit our mower. Our friend just “happened” to have one at his house. He said he’d been trying to sell it for two years and hasn’t been able to get rid of it. It’s the same brand we have in there already, and is a bit stronger too.

Stephen and I just stood there laughing. Moments earlier we had been trying to figure out how we were going to buy a new mower. We talked about getting a push mower, but with the size of our yard and the amount of other hauling we do it just isn’t a practical option. Then, with one simple phone call, we learned about a motor that was better than the one we had was pretty much waiting for us.

I just love how God works. Yes, it’s an expense we weren’t planning on, but this repair bill sure is better than trying to figure out financing for a lawn tractor with a price tag of $1,000 or more! It probably sounds like a “little thing” to anyone reading, but to me, it’s just exciting to see how it worked out.

  3. It is the same with us. We have had it happen many times. The greatest one was one I was laid off…We had only been married for 6 mths. We had just heard that we had one the bid on our house. The next morning work told me they were laying me off. We freaked we didnt know what was going to happen, we worried and freated over it all day. Then at 5pm that evening Daniel heard before he left work that he was getting the promotion at work, with a company truck. Which not having to pay for gas in his truck anymore made the difference in what I was getting paid. We found out that we shouldnt fret so much when something happens. Cause even if we forget he is watching he doesnt….

  4. Nothing little about that! And its always good to get excited about how God provides. I had a friend tell me one time that she had been praying for a new iron and how God provided it. I remember how excited she was over something so “insignificant”. To her it was a need that God fulfilled and there’s nothing small about it! God is very good!
