My question to God was on a blazing hot day in the greater Sacramento area of California!
At this particular time in my life I had been re-married for 6 years, although, I had two children from a prior marriage. My son had just turned 14 years old and my daughter was only 10 years old.
My Car Trouble Led to Seeking God
The vehicle I was driving (borrowing) at the time was a my spouses friends car, which was a 1959 1/2-year-old Ford Mustang this car was in great condition outside of needing a tune-up. I say that because on August 16, 2011 as I was driving this car from my work to pickup my son from his football practice the car started sputtering, cutting out, hesitating, so I started praying to God for him to get me to the high school. When I arrived at the high school, I sought out a particular parking spot that would allow me to drive forward out of verses backing out of a parking spot. Once, I parked and turned off the car and sat in the car sweating to death waiting for my son to arrive at the car.
I phoned my spouse to tell him what was going on with the car. He was supposed to give the car a tune-up the weekend prior to this particular day. When I called him from the car I asked him why he didn’t do what he said he was going to do. I continued to tell him I am basically stranded and afraid to drive the car further. He said, “I will take care of the car when you get home”. I said, I think I would have a better chance to have it taken care of if I run by and get the car looked at by a professional. I was so upset that I was put in this predicament in the first place. I was frustrated and emotional over the phone with him.
God Can My Life Get Any Worse?
Shortly after hanging up on him. I looked up into the sky which was and asked God can my life get any worse? Well, I will admit to you right now to my dismay the answer was YES! Yes, it’s going to get a lot worse!
Have you ever asked GOD in a prayer for an answer and expect or at least hope for the answer sooner rather than later? Well I can tell you mine was answered less than 24 hours later. My question to GOD took place around the 6:00 o’clock in the evening of August 16, 2011 and was answered the very next day around the 2:00 o’clock in the afternoon hour.
Before I tell you what happened you will need you to understand why it happened.
I hope you are ready for this crazy twisty kind of story.
You will never know when your life will need re-start but, it can and will start over!
