PSALMS 91:4 (KJV) He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
When it comes to my devotions, I would love for them to be beautifully written like some. English and punctuation are not my strong points and i will never pretend to know it all about God's Holy Word. I simply post what I feel The Lord wants me to write. Mostly, I am sharing what is going on in my own life! Even if I end up writing in the midnight hour, each time God puts a new subject on my heart :)
This week an old friend stopped by my Mother's home and reminded me of something that happened to me a long time ago. I had not thought of this experience in years. Even though I have talked about this subject before, I TRUELY believe what is embedded in a persons heart, good or bad when a crisis arrives.... it WILL come out of their mouth!!!
It was a winter Sunday morning. I remember that there were no leafs on the trees. I was in my usual rush out the door and get to Church mode. A straight way, down the dip and starting to head up. A truck topped the steep hill and was clearly in my lane. I removed my foot from the gas petal and stomped on my brakes. I can still hear the tires screeching in my head. There was not going to be enough time to stop. I could see a man and a lady inside the truck. The man was blonde and was smoking a cigarette, the woman had dark hair. The truck was literally that close!!! I knew we were going to hit! I knew I had no time to get out of his way! I knew...at that moment... my life was over!!! At least I thought!
I have heard people say that in circumstances like these your life flashes before your eyes. I must say the unusual happened to me. I closed my eyes and covered my face with my hands!!! I screamed ..... JESUS!!!!! The word was deep down in my soul. That is the only word that came out of my mouth.
I'm not really sure what happened next after my frightening episode! When I opened my eyes I was pulled over on the side of the road, neatly parked in front of a yard.
BLESSED, SAFE AND SECURE!!!!!
My logical side knows that in general, people's natural reaction would be to jerk the car to the right. My spiritual side knows there is a different version! You see, NO ONE closes their eyes and covers their face behind the wheel!! I ended up NOT a few car lengths pulled over; I was almost to my destination!!! Almost at Church!!!
There were no outside eye witnesses that day. Just me the people in the truck and God Almighty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED...........
Did The Lord transcend me and my car into safety? Were God's angels there to minister to my every need? Did The Lord lift the truck over my car to avoid a tragedy? Were the people in the truck a follower of Christ or did they need more time?
I will never know on earth the answers to these questions. I do KNOW that God was FAITHFUL and I do KNOW I saw a mighty miracle that day in my life. The trail of the black tire marks on the road bothered me for a long, long time until one day the State department came in and repaved the road!
GOD IS GOOD LIKE THAT :)
This week I remembered that God's protection was clear that Sunday morning and God's protection in life's uncertainty..............................
IS STILL THE SAME TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blessings to you always ~
