“Mr. And Mrs. Fix It”

The transmission was going out on our Volvo, which God blessed us with in 1991.  It was our very first brand new car (you know how even a used car is new to you, well this was brand spanking new!), yet God kept it running.  He corrected what was wrong.  Yep, it still needed a ‘check-up’, but God maintained the car until the time came when we could have it fixed.  During this time I also remembered:  “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” (I Cor. 10:13).
What has been a "Spiritual Band Aid" for you?

I was upset with God, just as children sometimes get annoyed with their earthly parents.  No disrespect, but yes, I was ‘perturbed'.  I continued to go to church, but no, I didn’t feel like praising God.  I felt that He had let me down, yet, in spite of my feelings, I knew that there was victory and comfort in praising God.  Worship was hard too nevertheless; I still loved God as children still love their parents when things don’t go their way.  Even if there was a lesson to be learned, I continued to love and respect God.  Later, I realized that it wasn’t God I was upset with, as much as it was myself, for having allowed the stress of the situation to get to me.

Well, the transmission in the car received a band aid from the Lord (a spiritual band aid).  It still needed to be fixed, but He put a little salve on the hurt because He knew that we couldn’t afford to fix it.  I thank God that my husband was blessed with the ability to tinker with machinery.  God has given us a self-help attitude, and we utilize that manpower when necessary…
