Thankful for...broken things

As frustrating as it can be when things that are supposed to do something and they don't, it is also a wonderful reminder of a couple of things:

1. Things are a gift from God to be used for God's glory, not to ultimately satisfy you (only Christ can do that).  When we get upset over things breaking, often that is merely a reflection of our dissatisfied hearts.  We need to recognize that that thing is just a thing, and that we already have our ultimate satisfaction, both here and in the life to come, in Christ

2. We should be thankful when things do work. 

3. We should trust that God is sovereign, even in allowing your car engine to die in the middle of the night. 

Ok, I guess that was a few things.  Hopefully I can learn these things well.  Oh, and the reason this was brought up is that something is so wrong with my front bike tire.  I fill it up in the morning, and by the time I get home, it's pretty flat.  Definitely going to the bike store soon...
