I finally have my own car again. My good friend Joe, drove us around suburbs of Sydney visiting people’s houses to check out their cars. Late Tuesday evening, we finally came across one of the best deals you could ever get.
The car is a 1995 Toyota Corolla Seca CSX AE102X 1.8L and it’s done less than 90,000km (56,000 miles). I got the car for AU$4,000 (US$3000) which is a bargain. Praise God, I knew that He would provide the best. It’s taken almost 3 weeks, but it was well worth the wait.
Recently we studied the topic of Moving Toward Maturity at our fortnightly bible study. One of the points made was that we need to ask when and not why. Alot of the times we don’t want to wait for God to do something, when we get impatient we begin to doubt whether anything is going to happen at all. Instead we need to keep on believing and seek God for when it will happen, knowing that God will surely come through.
Last night I was able to put this into action. The train that I catch to go back home was stopped halfway to where I wanted to get to. Apparently there was an accident at the bridge up ahead and they stopped the train to make sure that the tracks were still safe. I had to get to parramatta by 7.30pm for Prayer meeting. The only options I had was either wait it out or get out of the train and catch a cab. I didn’t want to catch a cab, because I knew that God is bigger than this problem and if anything He can get me to prayer meeting on time. 15 mins went by and still no sign of moving, by this time it was 6.45pm. I just kept on believing that I will not be late. Sure enough at 7.00pm the trains were ok to go ahead. Hallelujah! I arrived at church for prayer meeting right on time.
