When I found myself in A Difficult Place this week, it sure wasn't were I wanted to be.
You see my hubby and I go on Wednesday to have our car washed in the town 30 minutes from where we live. It's $2.00 less on this day. After the people were finished with our car, I drove off and as I looked from right to left then right again, I saw a car and a semi truck coming in the distance. I had time to get into the lane but when I turned into the lane my gas paddle seemed to be stuck. I couldn't get it to go, I glanced again to see where the semi and car that was in this lane was. It was very close, so I tried again but it would only go a few inches, it seemed. I said a prayer quickly and then looked again and thankfully and praise God the car and semi had come to a stop, waiting for me to "get out of the way".
I put my foot at the top of the gas paddle and it took off. I pulled into a parking lot and got out to see what was wrong. The car wash people had put my car mat over the gas paddle and the brakes causing me to be unable to use them properly.
" I am with you always, evenunto the end of the world."
My Lord was certainly with us that day! I can't praise Him enough!
"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee',
"The Lord is my helper....."
There are lots of people in the Bible that found themselves in a difficult place.. Abraham for one, when God asked him to sacrifice his son Issac. Abraham found himself in a difficult place.
Philip when he was happy were he was but God told him to go to Samaria, where Saul had made havoc of the church, and preach.
These difficult times enlarges our faith and brings us closer to Him.
God is with us in the bad times as well as the good times. Call on Him and Praise His Holy Name!
Last week was fall break so we rented a cottage at F.D. Roosevelt State Park and invited our girls and grandchildren, that could, to go with us.
I love the old stone building where you check in.
The hanging light is so pretty.
In the back of the building, is an overlook.
The days were cool so it was nice to have a fire in the fire ring, each day to roast marshmallows.
The girls (and boys) love to kayak. There's the runaway paddle boat. It didn't go far though, the breeze kelp pushing it back to shore.
My daughter, Susan andgranddaughter, Morgan, laid down in their kayak's and drifted all over the lake. The water was so pretty.
My grandsons JC and Joshua was fishing across the lake but you aren't able to see them. I love how the sun made the shadows of the trees on the ground.
The geese came out to meet us, really they just wanted to be fed.
We love this state park it's only a short drive from where we live, so we try to go as often as we can. It's always more exciting and enjoyable when the family can go with us. We all had a great time and didn't want to leave!
