Hope you are doing well. The nature has been a little gracious to us by offering some warmer weather this past week. It would be great if it would continue to be the same.
A particular lady was driving her car on a cliff side area. As she was driving she noticed a truck following her. In the beginning she did not mind. But as she kept driving she realized that the truck was following her car alone. She was a little frightened and started driving a little faster and the truck kept following the car. She went near a gas station and stopped the car, got down and started walking towards the counter of the gas station. The driver of the truck stopped his vehicle too and started walking towards the car, which made the lady really frightened.
The lady kept looking at the truck driver steadily unable to think anything of what was going to happen. The truck driver approached the car and opened the rear door of the car and grabbed out a man from inside the car. This made the lady really scared and she was almost to the point of screaming for fear. The truck driver came to the lady and said, “Madam this man was hiding behind you with the intention of killing you. I saw him get into the car with a knife. I was following you to tell you that and to save you from him. Sorry if I had caused any inconvenience to you.” Saying so he took the man to the police. The lady took a long time to come back to her senses.
This may be a story, but it brings a message to us. We are scared of little events in our lives. Though sometimes the events may scare us, we should try to see what good can come from that. Those events may be the means of God to protect us from a greater fall on our way. Little inconveniences in our life may be the roadway leading to better fortune in our lives. Or these events may prepare us to face even greater misfortunes in our lives. If we learn to accept them in that way, our life might be a happy one.
Only our deep faith in God would help us take these happenings in this way. We must trust in God that he will not let us down or will not put us into any hot soup. Because he is our maker and the destiny of our life. If we keep that in mind, we will be content in life. God may have his way work in us through some misfortunes sometimes. Interestingly, some of those misfortunes are necessary to make our life worth living and they add taste to our lives. Without those kinds of things life would become monotonous and tasteless very often. So let us take them and taste the life to the full with a deep trust in God.
Yours sincerely in Christ Jesus,
