After a long day, at altitude, jet lag and lack of sleep went to fill the car up at a petrol station and put the debit card in the wrong slot. Put it the receipt by mistake. It is not that we haven’t done this a million times but… so stood there thinking what we were going to do so I prayed, asking God to help, the owner came out and could not get the card so I declared ‘there is a solution’ but it was not looking promising. He left us with a paper clip and a large plastic clamp thing.

Praise God we got it out. He demonstrated His goodness. This seems like a small thing but we were in a seven 11 gas station in Colorado a long way from home. It mattered to us but we turned to Him rather than despair.

Turn to Him first in all and every situation and see what He can do. Bless your circumstances rather than cursing your own stupidly and certainly don’t blame someone else. He always has an answer and it is an elegant one.
