“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted” (Job 5:9).
My parents had another miracle that I’m not sure I’ve written a story about. It was raining, and they were coming from Parkersburg to Ravenswood, and mom had the cruise control on. She said they were just clipping right along and all the sudden, they were spinning in one lane a few times, did a couple twirls across the median and ended up on the opposite interstate lane going the right direction, headed back to Parkersburg. And what is the chance that both sides of the highway were just conveniently empty at that time? I don’t think it’s chance at all – these are moments where God intervenes and he directs traffic and he opens up the way….
My friend Stacy had a bad hydroplaning incident around that same time, and hearing her story was just as chilling to think of how fast your life can spin out of control, flash before your eyes. When you’re given more time, you’re given more chances, they are precious and come with a responsibility. Both mom and dad and Stacy told their story, praised God, didn’t just pack it away, mark it down to another day lived. They KNEW it was another day saved, another proof that God had His hand on them. I pray he opens my eyes and keeps them open for those day-to-day miracles – and that he opens our lips with praise so that we give Him the glory that he deserves!
