The small car I was driving on the roadway seemed to be losing air in the front right-hand tire, and I thought it had picked up a nail. There was enough air left in the tire to get to my intended destination, but when I got out and looked at the tire, it wasn’t a nail or another object after all. In fact, after arriving, the rubber was totally coming off the rim! It reminded me of those tires that are re-treads, and after some good mileage had been traveled, they just fall off the main tread. You see remains of them often along highways where semi-trucks had lost the re-tread.
Sometimes our Lord removes those things which have completed their service for the intended purpose, knowing that the next time or season will require the need a “larger vehicle” or a different location in order to fulfill the call on our life.
Todah rabah! (Hebrew – Thank you very much.)
