It is the Sabbath.
I am still waiting on word about my car from the warranty people. My service advisor at the dealership has said he would be making calls to try to see what is taking so long today. He has double checked everything to make sure it was correct when he sent in the information.
In the meantime, I am still short $100 for my car payment. I really could use the help.
I have a plan, though.
Actually, I have two:
When I hear from him again, I will ask for a loaner vehicle. I may or may not be granted one, depending on what we can do about the car. If I am able to get one, I will at least be able to work doing deliveries for a few days.
Something is better than nothing. Every little bit helps.
On Monday, I plan to go to one of my other lenders and see if I can get some more money to help me out. I'm pretty sure I will be able to. The challenge is going to be transportation. Do I spend what little I have to try to get a loan I may or may not get, or do I beg someone for a free ride to where I need to go?
I'll figure it out on Monday.
Today is the Sabbath. I think God is wanting me to take today off anyway. It's the Sabbath, and I haven't been keeping the Sabbath for awhile. Maybe it's why I'm in trouble now. After all, to he whom much is given, much is required. Shame on me.
Lord, I ask for Your forgiveness. You are a gracious and forgiving God. I need Your grace, right now. I ask You to remember the Words of Your Son, Jesus when He asked if it was good to save life or destroy it on the Sabbath.
I also ask that You move this mountain in front of me. Help me to have strength to follow Your Will, no matter what that may be.
Watch over my children and draw them to You. Be with my lists. Lead me, guide me, show me the way.
In Jesus's Name I pray, Amen
“Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?”
