How many times do you trudge along in your day wondering if God is present?
Then something happens to bring tangible evidence of His presence. A fingerprint of His faithfulness and care.
My son was home on spring break from college and we asked if he would take his sister to a party. He had to pick her up at another function first. As most of us locals know, it has been raining for MONTHS!!! The roads can be scary with the flooding.
Having not driven for some time and the conditions of the road, my son was cautious as he drove on the highway to get his sister to her party.
In a split second a car hydroplaned and made a sharp turn directly in front of my son crashing both cars. The water on the roads caused the cars to spin out of control, stopping to face oncoming traffic.
This highway is always very very busy. It wasn't this day. That never happens.
God was present. His hand caused a nurse who was driving behind my son to stop and check on my kids. His Hand caused the Search and Rescue Team right behind them to stop and direct traffic while the damaged cars were moved to the side.
The cars were totaled, but God protected my kids, the other driver and passenger to walk away with very little but a scratch and adrenaline.
That night, hubby and I attended a concert by Bryan Duncan. This song he shared with us, made me thankful for God's hand in the accident, and the reminder that even if I don't feel Him near, God sees me. When I look for Him, I will see him too, in ways that I don't expect to find Him.
