Old Blue

Last night the truck I had inherited just closed for auction on ebay. I've got mixed emotions about selling it, but sometimes we have to make a decision that will preserve our serenity. Selling this will do that for me.
I got what my reserve was, and get this, the bid came in with 4 SECONDS left. God is so amazing. If He wants it done it will happen, but I always am reminded that it is in HIS time not Dee's time. I had given up on selling it even as Chris kept hitting the refresh button as the bid was closing. It wasn't until the last 4 seconds that this guy's bid came in. I am so glad for him too, he really wants this truck and is so excited about getting it.

The new owner lives in NY and I'm sure it will be well taken care of. He is so excited.
It's a long story as to why I needed to sell it. I won't go into the nitty gritty here except that most of the memories I have with that truck are not uplifting. God has wanted me to let that truck go since I inherited it last year when dad died. I didn't listen, and once we moved to OH we had it hauled out here. What an eye opener. Sitting in this truck as an adult when all the memories are when I was a kid. God knows what's best. I am being obedient and trusting He is the guide for my life.

I am so excited to see someone get it that really wants it. It's a God thing that's for sure.

God's peace,

Dee, To obey is better than sacrifice. You did what you know the Lord asked of you. That is what He sees. Blessings to you, dear friend, as you walk out His Word.
