God sent me a used vacuum. EXCITED!
Our vacuum broke. I have toddler, lots of carpet space, and, albeit, a little bit of a heightened cleaning “inclination.”
I do not have the money to buy a new vacuum right now.
I wanted to put off the purchase of a vacuum until I could receive my tax return.
But even then, I have a few other larger items I need to purchase before a certain somebody joins the Evans’ family (our soon-to-be arriving second baby boy).
Stressed out; I turned to God.
I threw out a request on Facebook for a vacuum to borrow until I could purchase one and also asked around at work.
Forgot about it almost.
Counted myself out a prayer.
But God didn’t.
Many days later, I received a random, unsolicited text from my sister-in-law that her mother-in-law knew I was looking for a vacuum and that she was purchasing a new vacuum the next day. Her “old” vacuum worked well still and was mine if I wanted it.
In a world of so many evils and hurts and sorrows it almost seems silly to be so excited and thankful over receiving a used vacuum.
But, God knows it isn’t just a vacuum.
It’s a reminder that…
a) God provides / But my God shall supply all your need according o His riches in glory by Christ Jesus Philippians 4:19
b) God never forgets even your smallest worries and struggles / He remembers his covenant forever, the word He commanded, for a thousand generations Psalm 105:8
c) Even when you count God out, He counts Himself in / Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies Psalm 36:5
It’s a great day to be God’s child and to Trust in the Lord.
