An Outcome From the Present Gas Shortage

Vern and Bee were so excited this morning when we loaded up the camper and placed them in the backseat. They found a comfortable spot and fell asleep, assuming our destination would be somewhere other than home. But, after driving over three hours we pulled back into our driveway.

We were headed down to South Carolina from our home in North Carolina to go camping. I was determined to go while my husband wasn’t so sure. After passing at least twenty gas stations that didn’t have gas, he had enough. So we headed north and back to our home.

Now that we are safe and sound, I’m content. A mindset that has evolved this year with Covid. Knowing that God is sovereign, I have to trust him in this situation along with all the other disappointments we have experienced.

Romans 8:28 states it like this. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

If I can keep this verse at the forefront of all situations, my disappointments can be transformed into opportunities. As for Vern and Bee, they are enjoying the warm fireplace that our home provides instead of the cold floor of the camper. All is good.
