My New Car and God’s Direction


For those who don’t know: I got a new car over the weekend!! After 8 long years of riding the bus,  we finally have our own wheels again! God is so good!! Unless you’ve been without a car for a period of time, you have no idea how many doors this opens up for Mel and I; small things that most people take for granted, like going to the grocery store whenever you need to…being able to FINALLY go to Half Price Books and get rid of these 2 boxes of books that have been sitting in my living room for the last year!

When Ramel and I moved to Texas back in 2006, we had to junk our car. It was 11 years old and the transmission had gone out for the 2nd time. We had suffered an apartment fire and could not stay in Nashville without a car.That city didn’t have buses like Dallas.

We sold everything we had left, packed our bags and got on a greyhound bus headed for Dallas to stay with my niece and sister until we could get back on our feet. Since then, Ramel and I have been trying to piece our lives back together from nothing,

My new job…our new car….these things mean more to me than you can ever know. God has brought us through SO many heartaches and disappointments! Lord, please give me the discernment to see the things that I need to see. Help me to stay focused on You and where I’m trying to take the next portion of my life. Show me where you want me and give me my passion back for what’s in my heart. Show me the right direction.

  1. Rachel be confident that God has every intention of restoring all that was lost in your life. It may seem like it’s taking a really long time, but God does everything perfect. Just like wounds, sometimes God has to heal us from the’inside out’ so that we can be completely whole again. My prayer for you and Mel now is that you give ‘finding a church home’ a brand new chance in your life. God has a plan and a purpose for you and Mel in the building of His kingdom. He had it back at Sweet Fellowship …lol…and He still has it now! No matter what path we take in life and how long it takes us to get there. ..God’s plan NEVER changes! Ma, told me that one day and I think about it every time I get weary on my journey to my own purpose. Love You.
