Sorry for the month-long hiatus, I’ve had a few setbacks with my arm as well as my computer itself (read more about that below), but nevertheless; I am back! Nothing life-altering or overly exciting has happened since my last post (Thanks for all the love on that one, by the way!), so here’s just a quick little post about God’s goodness…
Let me begin this story by reminding you how great God is and how uptight I can be. You see, God is always faithful and sovereign, but I freak out if once tiny piece of my life is misplaced. I realize what a character flaw this can be, and God and I are working on it. Anyway, last week I opened by laptop and realized my wifi wouldn’t turn on. Now, the wifi at our house is horrible so I thought that maybe it had something to do with that. I just shut my MacBook off and decided to deal with it later, but later came and it still wasn’t working. I did some resets I read about online, but nothing worked; so to the apple store it must go! So my amazing mother and I drove three hours to the nearest apple store last week, and they ran some extensive tests and found out that it was not going to be an easy fix. Not only was the wifi card bad, but there were also several hardware problems. As they are telling me this, these are the things running through my brain: “I start college in two weeks. I can’t NOT have a laptop!” “I do not have enough money to pay for this!!!” “THIS IS GOING TO COST ME NEARLY $500?!?!” “I cannot deal with this right now!!!” You get the gist, it wasn’t pretty. But nevertheless, I let the nice man at the Apple store take my baby away and send it into the Apple doctors for a tune up. I worried about it the entire way home, but then God reminded me of something. I had received an $1,100 grant through a TRIO program at my school that I wasn’t expecting. Meaning, I hadn’t budgeted it for my tuition yet. Meaning, I could use it to pay for this and it not even affect my bottom line. THEN, a few days later, the Apple people came back and said the total cost would be half of what they quoted. THEN, they said they would ship it to my door for free, saving me a three hour drive and lots of gas. How great is our God?! He knew how worried I was about the cost and the timeframe, and so He enabled the cost to be cut in half, reminded me that I could use my grant for this, and wrapped up the entire ordeal in five days. How amazing is that?! I am in awe of His love and care for me. Good one, God. And yes, I will try and trust You more next time. You really know what You’re doing.
So yeah, that happened. Our God is so sovereign and caring, and nothing is too little for His attention. I am so thankful for a Savior like our Lord.
Anyway, that’s just a little update. I have another post in the works that talks about some visitors we’ve had recently and how much I love my family, so stay tuned for that!
Thanks for reading!
