Yesterday's God Moment

Do you believe in luck?
Chance? Happenstance? Putting out good energy and getting back good in return (as opposed to bad energy and bad returns)?  Karma?

I don't.

I believe that very existence is by design.
For a purpose, a reason.

I believe in God.
In His ever present love and intimate interaction in our lives.

I also believe in the devil.
In his ever present hate for God's creations and his strong desire to destroy us.

Yesterday evening, these 2 pulls on my life came together in what I call,
A God Moment.

This morning, instead of sharing this with you, my family could have been arranging my funeral.


I had to go to the neighborhood drug store and it was raining.  Not just a shower, but intermittent buckets of water pouring from the sky.  Now, while I have fun with the kids in the car, I am actually a very careful driver.  Especially in bad weather.  There is a sharp, mostly blind curve on the road near our home.  I almost always slow down for this curve.  Mainly because people think that there is no speed limit on country roads.  (But yes, there is).  Yesterday, as I was nearing the bottom of the curve, I got an irritable itch on my right shin.  The kind that makes you try to rip your skin off.  The kind you can't ignore.  So I took my foot off the accelerator, but did not stop, and bent to scratch the itch, which pulled me a little to the right.  Just then, a car came FLYING AROUND THE CURVE crossing the double yellow line.  It swerved back to it's own lane, and continued on it's way.

But I stopped.  Stopped to thank God once again for watching over me.  You see, if I had not slowed down and pulled right, I would have been in the middle of that curve, and that speeding car would have hit me head on.  I know that I know that an angel pinched my leg.

I'm trying not to cry as I write this, because while I know that God loves me, moments like this remind me....


There are many moments like this in my life.
Not luck.
Not karma.
God moments.

I bet there are many in your life too, if you just keep your eyes open to recognize them when they come.

Share with me your God moments in a comment.
I would love to hear it.

Be blessed,
