The next day I received a phone call from a bank out of state that had a suspicious attempt to cash a check with my id and debit card. They weren't successful and I will have my ID back in a day or two. (I heard later from the sheriffs department that 9 out of 10 times this scheme works!) We found out our insurance deductible was too high to cover the cost of a new window and were really bummed out since we have a lot of weddings coming up, tuxes to rent, and all our bills were moved to one week in the month causing some discomfort. But God heard our frustration and sent some friends (angels#2&3) to our door who not only paid for our window to be fixed but brought a new purse stocked with all kinds of goodies including a pretty diaper pod to replace the one I had lost and missed.
If that wasn't enough good news, because the thieves were able to use our card here in town before they left for Georgia we got footage of them on a security tape and the deputy thought he knew one of them from out town. Normally these are teams that move from Tampa to New Jersey jumping on and off I-95 hitting up gyms and parks where moms exit a car without a purse. They smash a window, gas up and head on the road. Thankfully the footage may lead to an arrest here in town and we can have a safer town. Someone else from our church recently had this same thing happen, so hopefully we can be a small part in ending these happenings!
So needless to say, I am feeling Joseph's quote in the bible when he talks about what was meant as evil being used by God for good!
Our faith and security in God was not shaken, but strengthened!
Our silly insurance which was really no security at all, but was able to experience God-surance!
We saw tangibly that God is sovereign and he is all the security we need!!
Count it all joy!!!
