I can admit I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. I don’t talk educated and at times my grammar is awful. I make mistakes, I trip up, and I miss the mark sometimes. But I do speak the language of God’s kingdom, I seek it first, I strive to love like He loves me, and I am quick to repent and forgive. My heart is linked up to him and that’s enough for God to use the imperfect me. He said he takes the foolish things to confuse the wise.
Only God knows what I go through as I go through this thing called life, as a woman who happens to be single, who happens to own her home, while counting down to her last child’s graduation.
The numerous issues that come up on a daily basis that leave me baffled and waiting on God’s wisdom to solve. Well, I am happy to report that the mystery to my electrical problem has now been solved. Let me take you back.
June of this year I had someone to pressure wash my home. I was excited and pleased with the work of the young man. I cheerfully paid him and waved goodbye as he exited my driveway. Later that day I decided to run to the store and to my surprise my garage door would not open. Confused and frightened at what the cost might be to have this problem fixed I immediately started pressing buttons on the fuse box. Nothing worked.
I called my nephew who rushed over and repeatedly the process that I had already done. He then checked all the outlets individually. He an engineer (chemical) used terms I had never heard of before, I had no idea of what he was talking, but I nodded as though I did, and was left even more confused. Needless to say the problem was not resolved and we found out that the outside outlets stopped working as well. I ended up plugging the garage motor up to another outlet across the garage (tacky).
Fast forward to last night. I pulled into my garage and off the advice of a friend went back to the fuse box. He suggested to see if any were loose and if so he would come and replace them. But as I went over I discovered a tiny red button by the one labeled garage. I pressed it, grabbed a set of Christmas lights, and ran to the front porch to plug them in, and just like that they lit up!!
God may not come when you want him but he is always on time. The wait seemed long but the end is so worth it!! Now I must find more lights as these aren’t all working.
