Addition Problem Not Solved by Subtracting

Last year when my husband bought his car for our second vehicle, it only came with one key which was digital.  He was to make an appointment and return to the dealership to have the second key made.  He never went back.  Today after misplacing the only key, I immediately reminded him that he should have had that second key made last year.

Then I went to pray about it but my thought was so filled with “self-righteousness” and was having a difficult time praying with that type of thinking.  A light soon came on for me as I knew I couldn’t subtract to find the answer to an addition problem.  Neither could I get a positive result coming from a negative.  My thought immediately humbled as I thought about his patience with me so we called our service who sent out someone at no charge to open the door.  The key had fallen on the floorboard.

Romans 8:26 reads “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness.  We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express.”  I knew immediately that they would be found when I replaced negative thoughts with love and gratitude.
