Posts on the Road: Psalm 23…Protection

Psalm 23 asks for God’s protection

There was one length of our road trip where we were following a bad thunder storm.  A driver in the lane beside me was not being too careful…yet.  While he was passing me, I witnessed our potential collision.  He hit a puddle and started to hydroplane.  The vehicle swung perpendicular to his lane the opposite direction of me.  I sent up a quick prayer and braced for impact.  I watched as the truck tried to correct it’s self.  It completely missed our lane.  I later asked the children if they saw the angel at the corner of our car, protecting us from an accident.  You can’t stop a car pulling a camper in the middle of a down pour very quickly, even if they are going under the speed limit.  God can protect his people.  Your prayers don’t have to be fancy, just heart felt.  Latter I saw that same truck driving in the slow lane, looking a little distraught, but driving at a much more reasonable speed.
