May 12th thru 16th

A lot has happened in the last few days! One of the most significant is my car breaking down. At first I was upset and worried, but after a few minutes I knew that God would take care of us.  He had always provided for us, no matter the circumstances. But what ended up happening I could have never imagined! After emailing friends and family, less than 24 hours later, my dad called me. He left me a message saying I would never believe what happened and to call him right away. Well I did and he told me that someone he emailed at his church had read his email about me and my situation and she was told by Toyota to give away 2 cars to needy families. After reading my dads email about us, she decided that we would be one of those families to receive a free car from Toyota! What a blessing, I can't even explain it! This would be my miracle #2! The car that died the day before was my miracle #1. God had provided me a free car once, and now He is providing me with a free car twice! Unimaginable and amazing! God is amazing!

When searching for something appropriate for this post, I came across these verses, which I feel sum up a lot of what has happened!

Deuteronomy 28:1-14 NIV

"If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God: You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country. The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you. The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you. The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them."

Thank you Lord that you are faithful and worthy of praise! Only you can create such amazing blessings from our obedience!
