Thankful

I am just thankful for my life today. I have been through a lot in my twenty-five years of life, but today I was reminded of something that happened to me when I was sixteen: I was in a car accident. I had only had my drivers license for a few weeks and I was taking my teenage sister to school. The windows started to fog up as I pulled out on a busy road. I asked her to turn the defrost on, and whatever she did made it instantly get worse and fog up the whole window. I was new at driving. TERRIFIED. Did I mention that I hated driving, always got lost, and just all around didn’t want my license in the first place? Well, I didn’t know what to do. The logical part of my brain seemed to have stopped working. I couldn’t see and everything was happening so fast. I swerved over and ended up jumping the curb and into the ditch. All four of my tires were flat, but we were okay. We missed a light pole that probably would have killed me. A local pastor was driving behind me and stopped to see if we were okay. He said I did an excellent job of missing a car that pulled out in front of me, and that it would have killed us both had I hit it. Scary. Did I see the car? Not that I remember. I experienced God’s protection, his strength in my weakness. He is limitless and I am so very limited. I’d do well to remember that in all areas of my life. Today I’m taking the time to remember something that happened almost ten years ago and I’m giving thanks to my MIGHTY God for all that He has done in my life.
