We did one of those ten hour round trip drives to Pittsburgh and back in order to pick up Joseph and his belongings because he will be spending the summer here in Downingtown or out in California with his siblings.
We got to meet his girlfriend who is nice and who I would like to get to know better
We had lunch with Jonathan at the Double-wide Grill in the South Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
We made really good time in spite of the many bands of heavy showers we passed through on the way home.
Pat and I were listening to the Christian music station on Sirius-XM and talking. Because I was very aware of my blessings particularly how fortunate I was to be married to Pat and how fortunate I was to have Joseph coming home, I really wanted to worship to one of my favorite worship songs namely The Revelation Song. I told Pat at that time that I believe the song would be played in the next five or so songs. (the song isn’t on the top song list but I do hear it every once in awhile.)
As we entered the Allegheny Tunnel along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the sound from the speakers cut and we stopped getting a signal from the satellite up in space.
As we emerged from the tunnel, guess what song started playing?
I kid you not, this happened. It was wonderful and reminded me of a few things I need help remembering.
No matter how difficult it seems, God will have His way in spite of details.
I don’t need to remind God how big my troubles are rather I need to remind my troubles how big God is.
This is not a formula for success, there is no formula or set of rules, rather, it is a relational thang.
If God gave me that song to sing to Him, He WILL be there to help me with whatever else life brings.
He will take care of you, too.
