Has your blinker ever gone haywire?
My left blinker started blinking double time about 6 weeks ago. No big deal, right?
I took it to the auto parts store and the guy even came out to check it for me. I thought my bulb might be out. That wasn’t it. Front and back left blinkers worked, just double time.
Every time I turn right…blink, blink, blink, blink…that normal rhythm I’m so used to.
Turn left? BLINKBLINKBLINKBLINKBLINKBLINKBLINKBLINK! Whoa! Slow down, buddy! It’s OK, you don’t need to blow a gasket.
I think this would bug lots of people, but let me speak to those with an ear for music, momentarily. Do you feel my pain? Do you get me? It’s like fingernails on a chalkboard, right?
I went to a repair shop and asked what they thought it might be. Without looking, the guy said it was a minimum of $75 and was probably something electrical going into the steering column (don’t quote me on that, cause I’m definitely NOT a car person).
Anyway, I didn’t want to pay that, or deal with it, so I decided to wait.
Turn right? Blink, blink, blink
Turn left? BLINKBLINKBLINKBLINKBLINKBLINK
On and on it goes.
It doesn’t effect my safety, or how the car drives, so I just put up with it. Anyone relate?
I’ve been working on some emotional baggage (sort of never-ending for me). A friend told me about her prayer ministry and asked if I’d like to pray with her and her partner. I did! We set it up for yesterday. I’ll write more on that awesome experience later!
We looked at some painful stuff from my past and prayed. I felt Jesus say he healed it all.
Out to my car and into the left turn lane: Blink, blink, blink, blink…are you kidding me? I burst out laughing and felt the face of God light up with a huge smile.
I’ve driven several times since then and changed lanes, just to put on my left blinker: Blink, blink, blink, blink.
Just like clockwork.
And God and I just keep laughing!
