My New Life in Seattle

Miracles Can Happen With Faith

The Bible says faith as small as a mustard seed is enough to move a mountain (Matthew 17:20). If we believe that to be true, then faith comes before having all our ducks in a row. I haven’t written an article in a while because I’ve been extremely busy since I moved to Seattle.

When I proposed to my fiancee Lee, who lives in Seattle Washington, I didn’t know how the move to Seattle would go since I was living in California at that time. The only thing I knew was that God has called us to be married.

When I moved to Seattle a month ago, I didn’t have a job, I didn’t have a car, and I didn’t have a place to live in Seattle. I had nothing lined up in advance. It’s not that I don’t like to plan for these types of things ahead of time, but it’s just that it didn’t work out that way.

At a certain point when I kept running into problems that prevented me from moving to Seattle, I knew I just had to move even though nothing was lined up for me ahead of time. I didn’t have a lot of faith that everything would work out, but I had enough faith to make the move.

A Miracle Car

When I first moved to Seattle, I bought a 2005 Honda Accord. I was excited to finally have a car again for the first time in 2 years! That may not sound like a long time, but when you’ve been driving a car your entire life and then you all of a sudden don’t have a car for two years, you know what you’re missing out on! Haha

When I first bought the car, I knew I got a good deal when it was selling for about half the price as what most 05 Honda Accord are selling for. The reason I bought for such a low price is because it has some body damage, but I knew it was nothing I couldn’t fix myself.

Just because it was a miracle car doesn’t mean it was easy. After I bought the car, I found out that I couldn’t register it because the person I bought the car from didn’t have the right title. It took almost two weeks to finally get the owner of the car I bought to sign some papers that allowed me to get a new title.

The Car Trouble Continued

If you thought that was the end of the car trouble, you’re wrong. After I got my paperwork so that I could get a new title, there were other complications with the registration paperwork, but eventually God worked that out as well. Once I started driving my car, I started repairing all the body damage, I did a tune up, and today I replaced a worn part that controls the wiper blades (The wipers previously didn’t work right. That’s a big problem in Seattle where it rains everyday lol)

Since I’ve been in Seattle, my fiancee’s car has had some problems too. Her key was having trouble starting her car, her headlights started flicking at night (Bad alternator), her drivers window started going really slow and actually got stuck in the down position one night (Not a fun night lol), and her front brakes were really low. I finally finished fixing all of that stuff while working at a full time job, and doing wedding planning. Now I ready to sleep for four weeks straight lol

Things Are Coming Together

I’m really glad that I found a very low price place to live before our honeymoon. That was a miracle in itself. Not only that, but my fiancee and I live only about 5 minutes away from each other, so that makes everything ten times easier! it’s been a very busy month fixing cars, planning for our wedding, working full time, making new friends, and trying to slowly get back into my daily routine.

The picture below is the lunch I had at my fiancee’s parents house for Easter. Since my fiancee’s mom is Slovakian, the meal was a special Rusyn dish. It was amazing!

I didn’t have a job set up for me when I got to Seattle. I moved to Seattle with no money, no job, and no car, and I got all three within one week. It’s not because I’m just really smart, it’s because God is really smart haha If we trust that He really is who He says He is and have just a little faith, He’ll show us how smart He is 😉
