Challenge Overcome by Listening to God

One Sunday the disposal at the kitchen sink stopped working.  The dishwasher was also hooked into this disposal which meant I could neither wash dishes at the sink nor run the dishwasher.  Though I had a list of handy men, I knew I would not be able to get one of them to work on the weekend.  So I decided I would install a new disposal myself.  After all, how difficult can that be?  So I purchased a new disposal at Home Depot, brought it home and studied the directions for installation thoroughly.  Removing the old, “not working disposal” was easy, as it released easily, and simply dropped into my hands.  The directions for installation said simply that I must hold the new disposal up to the sink with my left hand and connect it with my right hand.  I was lying on my back on the floor of the cabinet, holding the disposal above my head.  However, no matter how many times I tried, I simply seemed to lack the strength needed.  So I quit for awhile, and decided to work metaphysically on the problem.  Again and again I affirmed that omnipotent God supplies whatever strength is needed, but it took me till the next day to recognize that mortal mind had convinced me that because I am a woman, I would not have sufficient strength.  I finally realized that I had not been listening, and I asked God to please tell me whatever I needed to know.  Almost immediately I knew to go to the garage and get the Tire Jack!!!  In no time at all the dishwasher installation was complete.  Surely God loves me!
