Reflections and car-angst

I've been spending a bit of time on this Christian girls forum board recently. It's been really encouraging. The environment is just really comfortable and loving. So that's been helping me in that sin I've been having problems with. *grin*
Also, being open about my struggles has made this thing easier. It's been difficult to reveal how weak i can be. But it's worth it. :)

In other news, my car is broke again!!! The alternator (the thing that gives the battery power) has broke, which means my car eventually runs down when the engine can't power the battery anymore. So it got picked up this afternoon by the towing dude. *sigh* I is going to be broke again.

Also, saw Pirates 3. Was a good adventure. Not much plot (ah, I'm going to get shot for saying that) or characterisation and some bits were really corny. But it was good fun!

God is good.
There's that story of the footprints on sand, and when the man walking with Jesus was going through the worst part of his life, he looks back and there's only one set of footprints on the sand, and he asks Jesus where he was during that time. And Jesus says, 'I was carrying you.' It felt really true for me this afternoon as I was thinking about the battle with this sin I've had. I've been scared of saying no to God. But he's been carrying me all this time. Even though I haven't seen it.
