Thankful Thursday

Cared For

I was driving home one afternoon after a long day at school.  The radio was playing and I was enjoying the sunny weather. All of a sudden a car passes me.  It wasn’t a big deal until another 500 yards down the road when the car slows down to turn. I had to slow way down and thought “was that really important to pass me and make me slow down?”  I wasn’t very happy. I started to go again and two deer jumped out in front of me! I didn’t have to slam on my breaks or anything, just take my foot off of the gas. I then heard that quiet voice in the back of my head say, “Yep, if you hadn’t had to slow down you might have hit those deer.”  God takes care of us and takes the time to direct our paths. Even if we view that direction as an inconvenience to us. We don’t always know why God does what he does, but I do know “That in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28, NIV).   I am thankful that He takes the time to remind me of  this.

How does God remind you of how he cares for you?
