A Cherry on Top

1 John 4:13–17 (NLT): And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.

Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.

All who declare that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God.

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.

God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect


Proof… Absolute proof that God is with us when we are going with anything in our journey in life…

No matter how crazy it may seem…

A couple of years ago we knew we needed to purchase a truck… And I’m the type that likes to research… See what is out there… Kick the tires from behind the computer screen…

We had reason to be at a car dealership, a very rare situation (ok hubby backed into something and dented the window frame and broke the window – but don’t let him know I told you!!!!) to pick up our car and the night before I had noticed online, what seemed like a good deal… And we were still a few months away from actually needing a truck and our budget would be healthier then… But we went and looked and it was already sold… So for future budget reasons we hung around and checked out our options… We took a truck for a spin and really liked it… But the budget soooo could not handle the payments… So we then started looking at used trucks and then IT came… A very simple and plain truck, without any fancy bells and whistles but with the tow package we needed… And very low milage for its age… and a great price… So how crazy was this???

The loans manager at the bank actually CAME to the dealership and worked with the numbers guy until they had something that worked… The bank person NEVER comes to the dealership we were told… As in FIRST TIME EVER!!!

Now, remember… We are still a few months away from OUR payment timeline… But God orchestrated it so we knew it was on His timeline and not ours…

I even pulled a Gideon fleece request and asked God for A CHERRY ON TOP… And he provided it… Hubby was looking at the license plates and not seeing any he liked so I reached over and grabbed one, looked at it and said – this is it… Hubby’s name is Kevin… The 2 letters on the plate are KV the first two numbers were his exact age and the last two… The age of his father, his best friend, when he passed away…

It’s stories like this… Personal ones that we can fall back on (God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.)

And we can share these special personal events (we have seen with our own eyes and now testify) to help others…

No one can argue or rob you of your testimony!!!

And in case we need a reminder… For on the really hard mental health days we all have…

Journal!

So that you can re-establish your own incredible times with God

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love.

As I’ve said before, I think I write this blog so that I can hopefully be more accountable personally and just so, if not more important… a place where I collect my scrambled thoughts in my journey with God… It’s more cemented in… It’s part of my journalling…
