Last week Thursday (March 4, 2010), my sister Alta and I were in route to visit my mother in the nursing home. We were on a 4 lane street, with 2 lanes going each direction. I was driving in the left lane and there was a good flow of traffic, and everyone was basically doing the speed limit.  

I noticed a truck behind me, and then I noticed him pulling into the right hand lane. I didn't think too much of it until all of a sudden he decided to cut in front of me ' between me and the car that was just ahead of me in the right lane. There was absolutely no room for that truck to squeeze through! 

Everything happened so fast that I didn't even have time to slam on my brakes. Somehow the truck's front end got through okay, but not his left rear end.  It went right through the right front end of my car! 

Both Alta and I shouted at the same time, "Did you see that?!  He went right THROUGH our car!'  

'I don't know how he didn't sever off you right hand mirror either, he was so close to you!' continued Alta.  

Wel, the reason he didn't was because he was already passing through it!  

Now I know that Jesus walks through walls, and so do angels. But trucks and cars do NOT go through each other! They collide and crumple and dismantle and people get hurt or get killed. But I have been telling people for quite a few years when they ask me how I am, I usually reply, 'I am blessed coming in and I'm blessed going out and I'm blessed all the time in between, leaving no time without being blessed!'  And I absolutely believe that! I have been confessing that for so many years now that our GOD had to suspend the laws of nature for a few seconds to show just how much He really can bless us when we believe in His protection. Part of a believer's covenant with the LORD is that we receive His blessings in many ways, one of which is His protection in times of danger. And this time it was a real doozie! PRAISE THE LORD!  

And what was real neat too, is that I had not had the time before church service to share this testimony with my pastor, and after the worship time, he asked the congregation if there was anyone who wanted to share what the LORD had done for them during the week. This is not my pastor's general way of conducting the service. It's generally at that time opening the floor for people to give their prayer requests. So, even though I wasn't able to share it before the service began, God made sure Pastor made a way that I could share it with the whole body of Christ!

To God be the glory for His unending mercies and grace, with thousands and thousands of exclamation points to try to express my appreciation!

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. You can even have that assurance RIGHT NOW!  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake. 

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.


JESUS DID IT! and...


Remember:  All that we do in this life comes back to our God-given purpose which is to serve and glorify God. The money and assets we accumulate, the fame and power we've attained or seek to attain - all of the things of this nature will one day pass away, but those lives of others we impact for Jesus Christ will last for eternity, and we will be rewarded for the part we helped play by impacting those lives ... for eternity. (Matthew 6:19-21 is our assurance)
