Trusting God to the End



Trusting God to the End

By Rita Davidson


How far would you go on an empty tank of gas?

Today was one of those days. Long day arranging for a new home we found. Phone calls, calculations, many prayers, and worry.

Mark was banging in the background behind me prying open my dad’s toolbox that we had salvaged from our fire. There is still boxes of things we have to salvage. My dad passed away 10+ years ago, but I think of him often. He was an auto body man all his life and was a farmer on the side. J

So this toolbox was my dad’s tools from his work. The toolbox was some 100 lbs when we brought it here. It went through the fire, a lot of water and got crushed by the backhoe that rolled over our ruins to put out the fire. So it was in bad shape.

Then Mark brought me this:

Wow, I thought, a relic from my dad. Most of his belongings I had saved were lost in the fire. His school books, rosary and his medals, all gone. Then here was something pulled right from his toolbox, not opened since he passed away. Jennifer on my Facebook page called it a, ‘heavenly hug.’ After I read that, I couldn’t agree more.

After our excitement, I realized we had to go out. Unfortunately our closest store is 30 minutes away. When I looked at our gas tank it looked like this:

How far do you think you would drive on an empty tank of gas? Well, we were about to find out. So off we went a little sheepishly. While I was driving, I felt in my pocket the St. Christopher medal of my dad. I now realized I had little to worry about.

So, I continued to pray, taking the long way to town, which unnerved Mark. I told him why should we worry? God would surely get us there. In no time we pulled into the station in the local town. We made it!

Mark laughed as he realized we had that new St. Christopher medal and said, “of course, you probably had that new medal on you.” I said, “Of course!”

It cleaned up really pretty too. A heavenly hug for sure. Thanks Dad. 🙂

No matter what you are suffering, God is always there; planning a way to carry you through to the end. Just Trust HIM.

With love,

      Hello Eva!
      So nice to see you over here on my blog.! 🙂
      I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad. 🙁 Praying he will be healed soon.

      And I’m so sorry to hear about your anxiety. You know I’ve suffered with anxiety (not as bad perhaps) but for many years.
      I did write a blog post about it, two of them I think. They would be worth your having a look at too?
      Here is one of them
      Please have a look at it and see if it can be of some help for you?
      Please be sure to come back and let me know how helpful this other post was for you . And let me know how your Dad is doing okay?
      Sending lots of HUGS and prayers your way!
      With love,
      Rita Xo 🙂
