Don’t Worry Praise Family! No matter what they say God Remembers!
By Min. Teja S.
“19Godly people find life; evil people find death. 20The Lord detests people with crooked hearts, but He delights in those with integrity.” (Proverbs 11:19-20 NLT)
I had to be at work very early on this particular morning; so, I literally left my house before dawn. The thick hovering clouds blocked any view of the moon, which made this rainy morning seem exceptionally dark and dreary. I hustled quickly to my car loaded down with my lunch bag, Bible bag, and purse, in an effort to keep myself from being soaking wet by the time I got to work. I started my car and pulled out of my parking spot expecting this to be the beginning of another uneventful day at work. Upon making a right turn at the end of my street, I felt a slight tug which was followed by a strange, loud, creaking, crackling sound. I immediately stopped my car and jumped out totally forgetting about the rain, only to see that I had misjudged the turn, and torn the entire bumper off of a black sedan that was parked in the “no-parking” zone at the end of my block. The front end of this car was virtually destroyed. There were so many broken pieces on the ground that it looked like a gigantic 3D jigsaw puzzle. I embarrassingly looked around. There was no one in sight (probably because it was 4:15am). Then amazingly, I noticed that there wasn’t even a scratch on my SUV. Now soaking wet, I stood motionless in the rain torn about what to do. As I stared at the car, I could feel the Holy Spirit gently nudging me to do the right thing, so that’s what I did.
Using my cellphone, I took several pictures of the crumbled vehicle from different angles, quickly wrote my name and phone number on a piece of paper and placed it under one of the wiper blades. Flustered and drenched, I rushed to work praying that I wouldn’t be late.
It truly was an accident, and I tried to find solace in knowing that I had done the right thing. I thought that I would feel great about how I handled the situation, but I didn’t. What seemingly was the only result of trying to be like Jesus was that my car insurance premium was raised, I got points against my driving record, and the police officer that I dealt with later that day treated me as if I was an idiot.
“For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for Him and how you have shown your love to Him by caring for other believers, as you still do.” (Hebrews 6:10 NLT)
Quite a few people insinuated that what I did was stupid. I called a friend, told her what happened, and she encouraged me.
