Watching God

It is so awesome to watch God's hand at work.

I read a post this morning by The Light in the Woods, and was reminded of what God had once done for me.

I was living on our farm and would have to drive 60 miles to work everyday. On this day, I got into my car, turned it on and the air bag light was flashing. I decided to ignore it and go on. But, half way down my 1/4 mile drive way, the light started to nag at me. So, I backed up and went into my house and got my car manual.

It took a while for me to find that this light flashing was an indication of any number of problems. None of which meant much. So, I turned my car back on. The flashing light was no longer flashing.

our God
I drove onto the highway and about half way to work, I came upon a horrible wreck. There were four cars and a semi crashed together. Traffic was backed up and people were killed in the crash. As I sat waiting to get by the crash, I began to pray for those injured when I realized that God had stalled me at home with that flashing light, so I would not be a part of this wreck.

I was grateful and praise and thanked God for His love. He is my protection.

I believe that God is in everything that I do. So, if I become puzzles about something that is going on, I always ask God "What are you doing?" He in His majesty, always answers. Seeing what God is doing and knowing that He is in everything gives me comfort.
God is a mystery, but if you commune with Him always, praise Him constantly and stay in the Word, He will show you those mysteries.

I could not maintain without my constant communication with Him...

He does work in mysterious ways to show us His love and care for us!

There's a hymn we sing in church sometimes called Somebody's Praying. I love it. It goes something like this:

Somebody's praying
I can feel it.
Somebody's praying for me.

Mighty hands are guiding me
To protect me from what I can't see
Somebody's praying for me.

Amen and Amen.


What a comfort to know that God is always with you.
