When you need help with a burst pipe in your house, you can a plumber.

When you feel ill and need medical help, you go to a doctor or a hospital.

When you’re car breaks down and you need help fixing it, you take your car to a garage.

How about when you’re going through some difficult times in your life, who do you call?

God alone can give us the strength we need to face each day, and face each trouble head on.

I’m sure we’ve all come across people who say they are Christians but whose day to day words and actions, do not reflect their claims. These are people who, in my opinion, think that going to church is all it takes to be Christian. That’s why I had to share with you the following quote:

christian inspirational quotes

It really says it all doesn’t it! There is so much more to being a Christian than just going to church every Sunday. As I said in Growing earlier this week, to be a Christian we have to grow more and more like Christ each day. i.e. We don’t just act as Christians on a Sunday, we must grow more like Christ each day. We don’t fool God if we aren’t 24/7 Christians so don’t fool your yourself into believing you’re a Christian if you aren’t living like Christ 24/7.

 

…they’re great when they’re working but a pain in your bank account when they’re not!

My car is now eight and a half years old. I’ve had it from new, and have found it a very reliable car which I’ve had very few problem with…until now.

In the last couple of weeks I’ve noticed one or two problems with it when I start it from cold, so given we’re getting into the cold of winter I thought I’d better put my car into the garage to get it checked out.

So the car was put into the garage on my way to work and by 3.30pm I’d still not heard anything from them – was this good or bad? Well it was bad, but little did I realise just how bad!

Yes there was various faults with my car, none of which had to be done today, however would need done at some point in the near future. The total cost of the repair work would be just over £1300!!!!

Wow! I was stunned, the cost of these repairs is incredible particularly when you consider how much I car is probably worth these days, despite it’s very low mileage.

So do we go ahead with the repairs? Well I told the garage not to proceed with any of the repairs just now, as none of them are causing the car to be unroadworthy. Hubby and I discussed the cost of the repairs and the age of my age and have decided now is maybe the time to start considering replacing my car, so we’ve now started looking round checking out what offers are currently available on cars, before we make a final decision on whether to repair my existing car to replace it!

Oh the joys of motoring!
