ach day we go about our daily activity hoping that no major catastrophe will occur. When minor mishaps delay or distract us, it is almost impossible to take a deep breath and simply thank God for it.
About a week ago, I had offered to help a friend with house hunting. She had arrived at our designated meeting spot half an hour earlier and this had me somewhat rushing out the front door of my house. It wasn't far from where I live so I was there in 2 minutes. Knowing she has difficulty walking, I slowly tried to back my car to a spot more convenient for her to get into the car. It was just a few metres away so I backed very slowly having a fair bit of my focus on my friend. Then, in a split second I hit my breaks and found myself glancing at my left side view mirror.
A lady was just about to cross the road and her focus was on her little child. She was totally unaware that I was about to back my car right into them! I waited for them to cross and backed up a little more to where my friend was standing. I immediately realised that I was pretty close to a major accident. No doubt about it...God protected them and me.
Yesterday, my brother was in an accident involving a motorcyclist. Both vehicles are currently at the workshop for fairly major repairs. Both men are unhurt. It is easy to ignore the fact that things could have been much worst and blame God for the 'bad luck' of meeting with the accident in the first place. However, as we reflect on the entire incident, it is so very evident that God's protection was with them both.
Praise God for His loving protection everyday!
