I remembered the teaching after driving many kilometre’s into the forest, I stopped to let our border collie dog run down the long lonely road,
As I hurried to join her for our walk, I accidently shut the car door behind me without removing the keys.
I began my walk. I prayed. ‘Father, I need your help. Please will you help me to find astrong piece of wire.’ I remember I also added ‘it would be helpful if someone could show me how to unlock the car door with it.’ A-Men. Thank You.
We walked for a long time, but I did not find anything to help me unlock the car.
Approaching the car, a roaring sound behind me caused me to turn around.
A helicopter skimmed above the road behind me. A megaphoned voice shouted. “Move your car! Move your car! We are burning the forest undergrowth! Please move your car NOW’.
I waved back and after ensuring the terrified dog was safely on her lead, yelled. ‘ I can’t! My keys are locked inside!’
He said something, then turned his machine up and disappeared into the distance.
A few minutes later a huge red fire truck pulled up beside me. Six burly firemen tumbled out ready to offer support.
However, it was a teenaged trainee who quietly said, ‘I can fix this.’ Out of his knapsack he produced
A piece of fence wire.
To the surprise of us all he then with precision and expertise broke into my vehicle.
I drove away to well-remembered shouts and cheers.
What an answer to prayer on that day. I asked for a piece of wire. I received a helicopter, a fire truck, six firemen, a young man and a piece of wire.
Thank you, Lord, for all your answers that surprise us. Abundant Grace.

Focus on beauty and KNOW REAL PEACE.
I was asked the question why I blog..
I blog to connect. To share with you and to read blogs from others. I write on other websites where I share spiritual insights, and my personal poems and even fiction stories but even here I live by Phils.4:8
Here on this BLOGSITE I made a commitment to post twice a week a comment focussing only on beauty and life, You are DIVINELY LOVED! I pray I’ll keep a focus on that Love.
Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, Philippians 1:12 (NASB)
Have you ever known someone who just refuses to be knocked down by life, who just keeps going no matter what life throws at them? I am blessed to have met such people, who are believers dependent upon God in all circumstances. One sister in Christ comes to mind who has a constant battle with serious health issues, but she keeps going serving God and the Gospel regardless of her trials – she inspires me.
Serving the Gospel is a continuous theme in Paul’s letter to the Philippians; it flows like a river through good and bad times, all of which points to Christ. In Luke 21:10-13 Christ tells us of coming trials for believers, but He highlights how…
