Twilight Tuesday--God Really is Good

But of course, you knew that, right?  Let me  tell you something of what happened today.

I am a substitute teacher who relies on my phone for everything--getting  jobs, gps (since mine was stolen), and keeping up with my life while working.  Well, my phone has been somewhat on the blink, and I thought of doing a factory reset, but I decided I would put up with its issues since it basically worked.

Well, today I turned it off when I couldn't get a network connection.  I turned it back on, and the screen went black.  I took the battery out several times.  I did my best to reset it, but to no avail.  Well, I didn't despair.  I figured I would get a new phone at Walmart.  I have a G1 which of course is no longer made,  But I figured it would be all right.  I was so glad I was at a job where I did not have to rely on a GPS nor look for jobs--I have one for Wednesday.

I went to Walmart.  Good prices, but after several minutes it was discovered that I was not eligible for an upgrade.  It would cost 500 dollars!  No thank you.  They encouraged me to contact  T-mobile.  I hoped and prayed I could fix it.  I did not panic like I often do.  I knew it would be all right.

I came home and looked up how to factory reset my phone.  I tried it, and I seriously doubted it worked.  I was busy looking up the T-mobile website, and thank the Lord, my phone suddenly worked!  God was so good!!  I can't get a signal here so I have to wait till tomorrow until to get it going again, but it is like having a new phone.  So I have to download everything again, but big deal.

So in the midst of several twilight moments, God truly answered prayer.  I am so glad cares about every aspect of our lives!

  1. Whew! That's such a blessing! Mobile phones are just so necessary these days- our grandparents would laugh at our need of them.
    I'm so glad it all worked out for you!!
