I’ve been meaning to share this story with you but am just now getting around to it. About a week ago, a good friend of mine had a single-vehicle accident when his truck left the roadway and struck the end of a guardrail. He estimates that he was traveling around 55-60 mph when he made impact. The truck spun around and came to a stop upright in the middle of the roadway. My friend’s primary injuries were as a result of his seatbelt. He had some bruised ribs and was pretty sore in his core area from the seatbelt preventing him from moving around the cabin or being thrown out of the vehicle. He is now recovering quite well and has already returned to his job.
I tell you this story so I can share this. About a week before his accident, he was cited for not wearing his seatbelt.
He was pretty upset at the time about getting that fine but he was also wearing his seatbelt the morning of the accident because of the citation.
Praise God that He is looking out for us when we aren’t looking out for ourselves. Things don’t always work out this way, but God obviously had a reason for sparing my friend’s life. May it be made known to him and may we all take a moment to remember that our Lord is always at work in our lives, even when we aren’t aware of it. May we not get so wrapped up in the day-to-day that we fail to notice God’s masterful work around us.
To him be the glory forever!
