A Honda Clutch Pedal Stopper, A Starter and Trusting the Process Part 1
Posted by Second Chance to Live on May 19, 2013
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. I had an experience happen to me on the way to the gym this afternoon. I share my personal experience with you to encourage your faith. In my experience, I have come to accept that there are things that are out of my control. With my acceptance, I have come to recognize, when things occur in my life that are unexpected, God is usually doing for me what I can not do for myself, as I realize that I do not the big picture.
As is my habit, after getting what I wanted to accomplish with my daily projects, I went to go to work out. Before leaving the community I stopped to check my mail box. After checking my mailbox, I got back into my car, put the key in the ignition and expected the car to start. Low and behold, instead I saw all the the various dashboard lights come on and stay solid. Was not some thing I was expecting. I turned the car off and then tried to turn the key with the same result. At that time some one drove up to the mailbox and offered a jump.
The battery jump did not work and then some one else came over to get there mail and I asked them if they knew much about cars. They were kind enough to help me the best way possible, but did not change the situation. These two individuals kindly helped me to push my car into a empty space. I then went to the community office and was able to call my mechanic. He told me that the issue could be attributed to 2 things. A small part the size of a dime (an inexpensive fix) or a bad starter needing to be replaced (an expensive fix).
To make a long story short my mechanic — told me that if I found blue crystal type pieces under the clutch pedal on the floor board, that would indicate the small part. If not, the starter would need to be replaced. I went back to the car and with a flashlight looked under the clutch pad on the floor board, and found the blue crystal type pieces present. A good sign. Tomorrow I will jump start my car and head over to the mechanic. I am glad that I stopped at the mail box and not some where down the road. I believe this was intervention.
In my experience, I have come to recognize that when I surrender to — or accept — what is, what is out of my control I have peace in my life. On the other hand, in my experience, I have come to recognize that when I do not surrender to — or accept — what is out of my control, I do not have peace in my life.
