掘り出し物 The Bargain

掘り出し物 The Bargain














聖書は「あなた方のものにならないのは、あなた方が願わないからです。」ヤコブ4:2 と述べています。

In March this year, because I was leaving Japan for 6 months abroad, I sold my car, a Nissan Juke. After returning to Japan in September it was necessary to buy another car. It was my hope that I would be able to buy the car of my dreams with the money I had received from the sale of the Juke. Searching on the internet, I found a good car but when I realized it been involved in an accident I gave up on it. The owner of the car sale yard told me that he did have another similar car in very good condition.

The car yard was some distance from my house but I went anyway. The car that had been recommended was 11 years old but had only 34,000 kms on the clock and was in immaculate condition just like new, without even one dent or scratch. The minute I saw the car, a Toyota Crown Royal Saloon, I knew it was the one! I was able to buy it well within the budget. The car yard owner said that in his 20 years working there he had never seen such a good deal and it certainly is a bargain. It is very quiet and smooth and feels so good to ride in.

The car has brown wood-grained material on the steering wheel, dashboard and doors, leather seats and rear vision curtain which move at the push of a button. It is certainly a luxury car. I feel like I have gained a bunch of money! I am as happy as a sand boy!! I feel it is a miracle resulting from prayer. “You do not have, because you do not ask of God.” Hebrews 4:2.
