Philippians 4:6-7

Admit it, even as a Christian we still worry. Even if we know the words of God and reading it many times, we still worry.  I have read Philippians 4 :6-7 many times, and yet when Satan comes to bully me, presenting things as if they were the truth and unfavorable to me, I get uncomfortable.  I lose my peace.  Recently, I made a terrible mistake of ordering from a Facebook ad.  I like DIYs and I thought to myself that I need this tool I see to make a simple carpentry like soap boxes.  That mini-table saw would save me money by making my own soap boxes at any size that I want. So I ordered. When the order came to me, I was surprised to receive the package in a little plastic bag.  That could not be the saw machine I ordered.  I wondered.  I ripped the plastic bag open and was surprised to see one tiny blade.  This could not be true.  This blade does not even cost 3€ !  I remember my husband told me that Paypal can return my money back if I have any problem with my order online.  I have been using Paypal for almost 20 year and never filed any complaint.  This one is worth filing a case.  So I did.  At first, the seller proposed to refund half of my money but I refused.  I said to myself, sellers like this need to be reported.  He is robbing the customers online.  This has to stop.  The seller, accepted to refund me in full if I send back the item.  He wanted me to send the item to China while the item was sent to me from Charlse de Gaule in France.  I told myself that the seller is just trying to make me drop the case.  I decided to continue even if I had to send the item to China and spend time to queue at the post office.  I thought that I would be doing other customers a favor if he gets banned for fooling us.  I carefully read the instruction, took the picture of the package with the address and went to the post office.  I had a problem at the post office, I realized I forgot my phone to take another picture of the package with the postal stamp.  The machine was also short of printing paper so I did not get my proof of postage.  I had to call the attention of the teller, wait a long time, cancel the first transaction and repeat the same process with another machine.  I told myself, what a hassle, so I prayed to god to make this action worth a favorable result.  I prayed, « God i’m giving you this case.  With all the hassle and stress it gave me, plus the time I spent doing it.  It must be worth doing everything. I pray for a full refund.

I uploaded the tracking number and the photo of the receipt according to instruction.  Days passed and Paypal asked for more proof which was not under the instruction.  Though I was confident to send a photo, I could not find it on my photo album, neither in my backup.  This stressed me because I was sure to have one before sending the package but it’s gone.  I did not enjoy half of the visit to the zoo.  I told the Lord, just like a daughter talking to her Dad.  I prayed this over to you.  How come I’m stressing over this, how come they are asking for more proof and I can’t find it.  If I can’t provide the proof in 3 days, the case will be closed unfavorable to my complaint.  I decided to move on for the rest of the day and asked God to replace the amount of the case with something else.  The answer was fast.  On the way home, we passed by a plant store and they have many rare plants that I would like to add in the house, my husband bought them and my sad afternoon was lighten up.  Even if I lose the case, these plants are enough compensation for me.  I had enough time to upload some other evidence to paypal, but not the photo I was looking for.  I uploaded the screenshot of the arrived package in China and the screenshot of the address where I sent the package.  Thinking that these may not be enough, I thought  that I would lose the case.  A few days after, I received an email from Paypal telling me that my complaint was not considered favorable to me because I did not send the proof they were asking.  This was not true because I sent the proof before the deadline.  I was battling a little bit with myself if I will constest their decision, and make a screenshot of the case but I decided to move on.  My plants were enough compensation.  I got a surprise a day later when I got another email telling me that the case is closed under my favor.  I told myself, how could it happen while the email I received yesterday were already closed unfavorably ?  I concluded, this is a surprisingly an answered prayer.  God can turn things around in our favor.  When things seems impossible and it becomes possible, it can only be God’s miracle !
