For this week’s gratitude post, I find that I am most thankful for God’s protection – quite literally! On two different times (within as many days), I was miraculously spared from being rear-ended while driving.
The first time, I was driving home on the freeway, and traffic came to a stop. My car slowed down in plenty of time, but the driver behind me must not have been paying attention, because that car nearly hit me. I remember looking in my rear-view mirror and thinking, “I’m going to get hit,” but then there was no impact! I know it was a miracle, because the other driver was thisclose to my car, yet did not hit me.
The second episode occurred on Saturday, when I was out running errands (not on the freeway this time). The car in front of me stopped suddenly, and I braked in time. The driver behind me clearly had not anticipated this abrupt stop, because she had a panicked look on her face as I glanced in the rear-view mirror. Again, I braced for the impact, but – you guessed it – the crash never happened.
Two miracles in two days! I am beyond grateful to God for keeping me safe (and the other drivers, too), as well as the reminder for me to always drive defensively. I thank and praise the Lord for His tender care and protection! 🧡✝️
