God's Grace

Posted on January 14, 2010 at 12:59 PM


Nearly every morning Erica and I go on a walk. On our walk we pray about our friends and family, the day at hand, our future, and for protection for each other. Well today our walk got interrupted. As we were crossing a main street near Warner Brothers Studios a crazy man nearly ran us over. Seriously. 

We were in the middle of the crosswalk (we had the right of way) when a silver car zipped around the corner. When he saw us he didn't slow down, but instead sped up. It all happened so fast that I barely had time to push Erica out of the way and just barely missed getting hit myself. The car was so fast and so close that it nicked my pant legs. 

Thank God for prayer and answers to prayer, because with as fast as it all happened we did not have much time to think in the moment. Had I not pushed Erica out of the way she most definitely would have been hit. To be honest I am not fully sure how I avoided getting hit either. All of the other cars stopped on the busy street to see if we were alright, because it was so close they all thought we HAD been hit. I believe one of the cars even tried to follow the silver car to get his plates. 

So after are heart rates returned to normal we finished our walk and our prayer. It is turning out to be a good Thursday after all. 

God bless.

Jayce and Erica,
Praise God that you are both alright. God is watching over us and He does answer prayer. Sometimes though we don't realize just how precious and fragile we are until something happens to remind us. May God watch over you and protect you. May His face always shine upon you. I praise God That He must have a tremendous plan for both of you if the evil one made such an effort to take you out today.

I believe feeling safe in our homes and communities is a necessary prerequisite to leading healthy, helpful, and productive lives. Having a sincere, deeply ingrained faith in one's Lord is certainly an admirable way to achieve that feeling of confidence and peace. This trust and faith is something we must strive to instill in our children so they, too, have the tools to lead happy, full lives.

Wow! What flashed in my mind was one of my favorite quotess from Lord of the Rings: ??Remember what Bilbo used to say: It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.??
For both of you, May the Lord bless you and keep you ....
