We received a flat tire yesterday on our way to work. Frustrating yes. Did we understand why God ordained this expense? No.
It was hot. We were stressed being in the middle of nowhere. The neighbors weren’t home. We sat. Then a kind woman stopped, let us use her phone to call a tow truck. She also drove the bulk of my family back home (45 minute drive in the opposite direction).
This morning, we find out that there was a deadly multi-car accident not more than 15 minutes from where we stopped with the flat tire. One person is dead. Many injuries.
IF WE DID NOT HAVE THIS FLAT TIRE, WE WOULD HAVE MOST LIKELY BEEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT ACCIDENT!!!
God knew, and God protected. Yes it cost us time and money, but nothing is more important than the protection of our family. God saved us from this horrific crash by popping our tire.
What an awesome God we serve.
