Almost a year ago our car was stolen from in front of our house. It was taken in the night. It was unsettling and turned our world on its head, but this is what I know: God gave grace to us.
Now, after a time, God has provided us with a second car again. This is also grace.
I am so grateful that all is grace.
People talk about God “giving beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…” (Isaiah 64:3). I will talk about that, too. Yes. Absolutely yes. I am so grateful.
Car theft is by far not the worst thing that has happened to me, and God has brought beauty from what I’ve mourned as ugly and hopeless.
I just wanted you to know.
