Last night, my car warning light came on
I planned to get car fixed first thing in the morn
But in the morning found out the place I’d go to went out of business
With limited time, I feverishly started looking up nearby mechanics
Found a place that had the part and was close
Prayed I could drive there without having to be towed

Got there, but I sensed not to trust what they diagnosed
As they wanted me to replace car parts that were not that old
So, I went back to looking for a mechanic feverishly
When I heard a voice say to me
“Slow down, God’s got this
Didn’t He let you make it to first mechanic without breaking down or being towed?
Didn’t He let you drive away without anything being owed?
There’s another means to get to work today
So slow down and enjoy the rest of your day”

Then I calmed down, as this made so much sense
In a couple of days I’d have plenty of time to get car fixed
It makes me want to sing thanks to the Lord
For dealing with me so bountifully. Psalm 13:6


Sometimes rushing to solve a problem, makes the problem seem bigger than it actually is.
You can also unnecessarily stress yourself out about it.
Slowing down and thinking about alternative ways to solve the problem can lead to the best outcome.
