His Grace is Sufficient for Me

My husband and I set out to be debt free two years ago and we are well on our way. We have been able to contribute more to our 401k and also pay of our car loan as planned. However, with only one car, we have run into a few bumps in the road. Our vehicle although debt free has been giving us some major problems. We have been to an auto body shop for repairs at least three times this year since the car has been paid off.

This has caused us to seriously consider taking out a loan to get a more reliable car. Each time we consider it we both hear a small voice telling us to trust God. He has a plan. Our van has 430k miles on it and oil leaks that have blackened 1/2 of my driveway. Nevertheless, God vowed that help us become debt free and he has kept his promise. We have done everything possible to get out of debt because we truly understand that God never intended for us to live that way. We have only the mortgage to go. We are working diligently on saving up for a used car since the one we bought a few months ago was a lemon.

So although our car is not in the best shape, we are going to trust God and take it day by day.
