Saturday Morning Musings

Today, I would like to share a testimony given by our assistant director at our meeting last night. He read the first part, but had me read the second because of the emotion. This is a two part testimony. We’ll begin with the first of two emails.

To: Tim Horne (Owner/Operator of Danny Herman Trucking Company)

I don’t like to take anything for granted or chalk it up to coincidence. Yesterday, we had another doctor appointment for my wife, Tammy, that sort of as a second opinion, gave Tammy news she sort of already heard, but was still hoping for something different.

The news was basically that her 9 strokes last year left behind more damage than originally thought and what we got is what we got and she won’t get any better. She is left with dizzy spells and now she has frequent bouts where she has these conscious and unconscious passing out moments (fainting). So, yesterday, on our way to our daughter Amanda’s to eat dinner with them, a semi wants to get in my lane in front of me. Now, mind you, at this point, Tammy is crying and literally asking God what He wants her to do and how she can do anything in the condition that the strokes have left her.

Remember the fainting I mentioned earlier. I was amazed at God’s message of hope for her! In big letters TRUST and above that Isaiah 40:31.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

Your truck driver hauling trailer 17166 was used by God that very moment in Milwaukee, WI on I894 at about 5:30pm November 7th, 2019.

Thank you for that verse and God’s timing!

What follows is Tim Horne’s response:

Mr. Gatton,

Thank you for your message. Occasionally, we will receive messages/stories such as this in response to seeing God’s scriptures on the back of our trailers. But this message has immediately brought tears of joy and humility to a number of our eyes. God has blessed us with a company not afraid to show our beliefs and messages such as yours re-ignite our passion to do His will.

We have approximately 430 trucks on the road with close to 1200 trailers. Each trailer having one of 4 different words on the back:

TRUST – Isaiah 40:31

LOVE – John 3:16

HOPE – Romans 15:13

FAITH – Philippians 4:13

So, the odds of you and your wife seeing that specific word and scripture just went down dramatically. Of course, you and I both know that with God, in all things, there is no coincidence. God has been working to get that truck, trailer, and load to the right place at the right time because He loves your wife dearly and knows her every need.What an amazing God we serve! Praise to God always!

We have already added Tammy, you, and your family to our prayer list and will keep you in all our thoughts and prayers for God’s will to be done as well as strength and healing to be provided. Thank you again for your message, it means so much!

With Godly love,

Tim Horne
