Being a Christian is not easy. As a Christian, we are called to be sent forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. The Lord then tells us to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. I have had many instances where this has been the case. I have not always been as wise as I should have been. Many of you have had similar predicaments. As of late, I have had more than my fair share of these instances.
Some time ago, I took my car to be serviced at Monroe Muffler in Newark, Delaware. I was having the oil changed on my vehicle. Someone from the business (accidentally) left the filter slightly unscrewed on the car causing an oil leak. I did not become alarmed until this also happened to my husband. Then I became suspicious. I actually thought that something major was wrong with my car, so I traded the car in, but before I traded the car in, I managed to file a complaint with the BBB. A few months later, my nephew called me frustrated because he too took his car to Monroe Muffler for an oil change. His car ended up destroyed.  I felt so bad because I did not tell my family about my experience with this company.

The second incident occurred with a car dealership and the Ford headquarters. I purchased a used car from the Price Toyota Dealership in New Castle Delaware. It seemed as if several weeks after I purchased the vehicle that someone or maybe several people, (I am not exactly sure which) had access to the vehicle key code. I called the dealership to let them know. I wanted to change the factory code for entry which happens to be on the outside of the car for the Ford Escape 2012. I was informed at that time that the only way to fix this problem was to pay about 300.00 to the Ford Dealership to fix it. I then called the Ford Headquarters. They told me that they could not reset the factory code, and that I should call the National Highway Traffic Safety Association to file a complaint. Needless to say that I feel like I am being shafted.

The Lord knows and understands that the world is a crazy place, It seems to be getting crazier as the days come and go, but we have this assurance. God will not leave us alone, and he will not let the problems of this world keep his children down. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:8 “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair. persecuted, but not abandoned, struck down, but not destroyed.” I believe that God will fix things for his children. I am leaving this situation in God’s capable hands because he is far above principalities and powers.
