A week after it began, my car search is over. I'm heaving a big sigh of relief.
Yes, I committed myself to a 5-year loan, but my payments are under $300/mo (by $20) and I paid the amount out the door that I wanted. And I got a brand spankin' new car (23 miles when I drove it off the lot) which will last me for-ever (I drove my last one of these for 10 years). I stood up to the sales people and won. Yippee!
Okay, truthfully, I had a lot of help. My friend Natalie's husband works in the car sales industry. He called a friend who pulled in a favor from another friend and got me a sahweeeeeet sweet deal.
Everyone listen up. Go see Corey at Crest Honda and buy a car from him. He deserves all the commissions he can get. He's a good, good man.
Oh, what a wonderful God we have! How great are his riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his methods! For who can know what the Lord is thinking? Who knows enough to be his counselor? And who could ever give him so much that he would have to pay it back? For everything comes from him; everything exists by his power and is intended for his glory. To him be glory evermore. Amen.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
