The repair man was scheduled to come Wednesday morning.
Wednesday morning the phone rang and it was a message confirming our appointment for Thursday.
So I prayed again.
My husband got up and I told him that the repair man was not coming today. I expected him to maybe freak out a bit, but he didn't.
He said "well maybe I should just look at it again and see if I can fix it."
He had said this the first day it stopped working, but after I couldn't find the manual and him almost getting shocked he gave up.
We went downstairs together and I moved some things I had
Once he had that he could easily see that the thermostat was most likely the problem, except there were 2 and he wasn't sure which one was causing the problem.
Meanwhile the phone rings and it is the repair place calling to ask if they made a mistake with our service date?
"Why yes you did, but that's okay we're going to try and fix it." I tell them, as my husband's asking me for the phone.
My husband asks them if they will answer one quick question about the tank. The lady on the phone says they're not suppose to but go ahead and she'll see if she can help.
She knew his answer right away.
After 2 minutes with the screwdriver and a quick trip to the hardware store, it is repaired. All for a whopping $13.99!
What did I learn?
What I always learn.
That God answers my prayers.
Never like I ask or think they should be answered.
He cares about us and uses us in the answered prayer.
He turns mistakes into good for His glory.
So, pray about the big things in your life, but also about the little things! Because He can be glorified in the everydayness of our lives.
And be thankful for your HOT shower!
