Ever since I started driving, I have had car troubles. I’m sure many can relate to the occasional occurrence of a flat or a dead battery but when I say car trouble I mean trouble! Over the past 20 years (whoa, am I really old enough to have been driving for 20 years?), having been stranded on many a roadside, I have been through the full gamut of emotions; sadness, anger, fear, frustration, laughter and peace. Albeit the last 2 emotions have only come in recent years. After having my window broken this week by a lawn mower at work, I had a few minutes to sit on the curb and reflect while I was waiting for Scotty to pick me up. I thought about all those past times I sat and cried and screamed and panicked and how none of those responses did anything at all to help the matter. While sitting there calmly waiting, I thanked God for the change in me and for Him helping me come to the realization that none of that helps and truly only made things worse by getting me worked up and many times taking that frustration out on others. I’ve learned to say in all these things that it is what it is and it will be what it will be and in all things I am to sit back and give thanks to God that He is there in the good and the bad and that in all situations He is working and He loves me. 
Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
