I recently bought a car! My beloved Subaru went to car heaven back in December, so since then, I've been looking for something else! It's taken me 4 months to FINALLY get this one.
Craigslist and I became pretty close friends. We knew each others thoughts after a while.
But he failed me. I had countless unanswered emails, phone calls that got cut off mid-sentence with the sellers, meeting with mean people to see cars and even scheduling to see cars and they sell RIGHT before I get there.
I decided to ditch my buddy, Craigslist and just wait. I threw my hands in the air and "Fine! I give up!"
In all seriousness, I felt God was telling me to hold on. To wait. I then believed that it was beyond me to find something (obviously!) so I left it to Him.
And He provided!
And I'll give you a hint: He did not use Craigslist :)
He used a sweet, kindred-spirited, honest, elderly gentleman to sell me the car.
The transaction was smooth. I wrote a check and I had such a peace. Exhaling with relief, I relaxed and looked at what God gave me :) Even the make/brand I secretly wanted!
I'm a little too lazy to take a picture of my actual car but this looks JUST like it-- my Volkswagon Jetta.
When He provides, it's truly wonderful :)
