I have a miracle story...
I was taking kids back to college, my 80 year old mother was making
the trek across 5 states to get to our destination with us.
We had prayed...together....Psalm 91
"God I pray that you will be with us on this trip
keep us safe,
I pray that these kids will arrive safely
and as your word says in Psalm 91 "No evil will befall us...that you
will give your angels charge over us"
Midway through the trip....
driving 70 with the flow of traffic...
the freeway all the sudden narrows to one lane....
I sped up with the intention of passing the truck
next to me before the lane ended...
when I heard a loud voice
"DON'T DO IT."
Was that God I just heard?
I quickly realized I had nowhere to go but off the freeway
and promptly crashed into large orange barrels and a cement
The car behind me (with all the kids)
crashed into my car.
As I watched the traffic zip by...
I saw that there was not one truck but a line of 20 trucks
one behind the other
....I had not seen the entire line....
I hadn't seen the whole situation.
It was pouring rain, and I jumped out of the car to
see if the kids were hurt....
we had after all been driving
70...in the rain....
and we had crashed hard.
The police were there....shocked we were alive...
were crying and very upset....
my mom was fine, not hurt at all.
I looked up toward heaven and fussed at God!
I told him...."I just prayed!
I just prayed your word
over all of us. That we would be safe!"
Look look at this crash
look at these kids..look at the cars."
I raised my hands in desperation and said
"God, I prayed that we would be safe
and that no one would be hurt on this trip!"
Then I heard him speak gently to me and say
"Debbie, show me who got hurt...."
I looked at the kids, crying, upset....they were all
no one was hurt....
I reminded God of the crash, and the now ruined cars...
He reminded me of what I asked for and prayed...
He reminded me that was the prayer He answered.
He was with us all the time.
I pray more specifically now...over us...the cars...other cars...
"Call unto me and I will answer you and show you great things that you don't know...." Jeremiah 33:3
