Life Can Change In An Instant

Hello friends (smile) Life can change in an instant. I’ve shared before about my friends, the Two Musketeers. (smile) Yesterday, going to lunch with a friend, we had a car accident. Out of no where, an emergency siren was blaring behind us and two cars in front of us slammed on the brakes.

Here is the beautiful thing about faith and having a trusting relationship with God. No words were spoken by either of us. No fear was present either. I tensed my body for the impact and my friend calmly turned the wheel to the left to avoid hitting the cars in front of us, only to be hit by a driver behind us. There were a few seconds, we could not think of the next step, and we refused to speak the wrong things. So we called out, God help us. God showed how mighty He was when the Third Musketeer called with the next step. Praise The Lord.

Praise The Lord, no one was hurt and no significant damage was done to the cars involved. The blessing was God’s protection and His presence with us at the moment of impact. This was at a busy intersection and by the grace of God, we realized, it could have been worst. Thank you God for walking us through!

After the police report was done, my friend choose to get back on the horse (driving without fear) as she called it. We continued on with our plans for the day. We both kept praising and thanking God. We talked about how God can work out all things and how blessed we are. We were grateful. (smile)

Many times, when things happen, our first response is to ask why or lose perspective on what’s really important and start speaking the wrong things into existence. Yes, life brings challenges. Yes, life has ups and downs. Yes, things and stuff happens, whether saved or not.

It’s all part of living and walking by faith and trusting God.

Focus on the positive qualities of people and situations to fully realize that life can change in an instant. Sometimes, we focus too much on the “cannot” and the negative instead of the “can” and the positive. (smile)

Be blessed and live life for today. (smile) As always, your comments are welcome. (smile)
