This is probably gonna be a whole series. Grateful is the first one.
I was supposed to be on a writing hiatus cuz I’ve written sooooo much and have sooooo many drafts still. Lol.
In Seven. Teen. Years. La. Ter., I said something like I can see God because I’m looking for Him and I’ll keep seeing Him.
First. All that looks to be wrong with my car is cosmetic and a coolant tank leak. I pulled the rear bumper off and disconnected something I threw in the trunk. I broke off a piece of something in the front. This ain’t my first accident rodeo. 🤷🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️😂🤣
I had already discussed, with God, the fact that I was gonna go to work after church eeeeeeeven though I wanted a lil job before to jumpstart the day. So, I mean, it’s not like I needed my car as soon as I woke up. Lol.
So what have I found in this?
The ability to stay calm.
The ability to still have peace.
The ability to still have joy.
The ability to comfort the person who did it.
The ability to preach a sermon about God’s ability and trusting Him and having peace. I deeeeeeef talked about the Shunamite woman, her son, and Elisha. See Two Things Can Be True.
I found the ability to laugh and make jokes. Ya know. Still be me.
I found the ability to not be angry. What would it serve or change?
I found the ability as an African American female to pray for safety and smooth sailing for the rest of the shift for two Caucasian officers in America in a former slave holding state.
I found the ability to be an image bearer and disciple of Christ in what could have been a traumatic moment of despair.
What would you find?
What would you do?
What would they see?
Who would they see?
Go be great. Someone’s counting on it.
