Message from Yvonne Calderon, Junior High Teacher

Psalms 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

Monday: a razor blade in my tire
Wednesday: I locked my keys in my car when the manual and the dealer tell me that it is IMPOSSIBLE
Thursday: After leaving school early to take Julia to the doctor, my CHECK ENGINE LIGHT SOON came on 2 miles from the dealership.
Friday: Art was diagnosed with glaucoma

If I looked at those situations just as I wrote those, my week would look fairly icky!

Here is the part where Psalm 91:4 became REAL!!!

Monday: The razor blade in my tire was about 1 mile away from school and Jose and Carroll changed my tire. When I called the tire store we patronize, the gentleman told me that they only had one tire to fit my car in the entire city. The tire was out in Goodyear. Would it be ok if I drove out there? God was watching over me because the ONLY store was 1.5 miles from my home.

Wednesday: Locking my keys in my trunk allowed me to remain on campus for another 30 minutes. I am not sure exactly how God was protecting Julia, Sihao and I. I am confident that His protective wing was over me.

Thursday: The CHECK ENGINE SOON light coming on 2 miles from the dealer was amazing. The bolts on my engine were cracking and set off the sensor. What a blessing that they were covered under warranty.

Friday: Art received the diagnosis we were warned may happen after the brain bleed. “You have glaucoma” However, this came with the encouraging words, “We caught this very early!”

I marvel at how the Lord went before me every minute of every day. I am not sure I would have noticed if it had not been for my bible study. It is interesting when we are reminded to see God’s goodness; it is right before our eyes. In lieu of feeling overwhelmed, I felt blessed.

Dear Lord, may we find the blessings you send our way!
