He did it! God did it!!!!! Let me explain...
Ive always prayed for emotions and such.. I prayed for patience, or wisdom, etc. I hadnt believed in praying for things, or healing. I assumed that if it was God's plan, it would happen, regardless of what I prayed for. I didn't pray for my headaches to get better, because if it was God's plan to heal my headaches, He would. I almost felt that by praying for things, I was saying that I knew better than God.
After a lengthy discussion at Bible Study (with some of my favorite ladies) I was persauded to try and pray for specific things rather than feelings of peace or patience, etc. Well, I got the opportunity when my car when caput (sp?). I was told that it was more than likely the head gasket ($1000 + repair.) Driving it any distance past initial engine heating up would cause it to over heat.
Well, I began praying my little butt (ok big butt) off for God to help me with my car situation. After a few days, I felt ok. I felt like things were going to work out.
It needed to be taken to be diagnosed today about 20 minutes from my house. Driving it last night out there...it didn't over heat at all. I told Josiah that I believed that God fixed my car...for real, all the "symptoms" of it being the head gasket were gone.
The car place called this afternoon..... and after a cheap part and an hour of labor, the car was fixed! God did it! He fixed my car! I believe this whole heartedly! WOOHOO!!
