Tonight, after service ended and before I got prayer, I was talking with S. Charlotte, telling her how God had kept our van running. Then I got prayer, and went home. On the way home, our van stalled out and being alone, I was terrified. This stretch I was on had almost no lights there and it was nearly impossible to see our van. I really was terrified because someone could easily have rear ended me.
The only thing I could was get out, as quickly as possible and flash my cell phone in the back to try to alter people I was there. It was all I could do. Finally, a man pulled up behind me and put on his hazard lights, then a sheriff showed up, and both men helped to push this heavy whale of a vehicle into another church parking lot right across the road, where we were safe and out of the way.
I almost did get read ended at one point, which was terrifying.
But you see, God gave me a sheriff and a tow man to help me! He’s so wonderful! I was so blessed tonight, and I hope God will bless the tow man who helped me, and the sheriff. It’s so easy to feel angry or helpless, but I’d rather rejoice in knowing that He is there, and He always is when I need him. You just never know what can happen in life, and if the Lord isn’t with you…you never know.
Jesus, thank you so much for being there for me. Let’s make this a night of being thankful and closer!
