Guest writer - TC Avey

We sent out a call for guest writers last August, and I received this one shortly after our own car accident. The author and I both got a pretty good chuckle about the timing, and several uncanny coincidences.
With that said, here's her story about how God used a car accident in her life...

My husband hadn’t been gone fifteen minutes when my phone rang.  Figuring he was calling to tell me he left the coffee pot on I answered “somewhat” distracted by our newborn son.  My heart skipped a beat and my stomach hit the floor when I heard him say, “I’m okay, but I’ve been in a wreck.” 
He went on to tell me that someone rear-ended him on the interstate, he said the other persons vehicle was totaled but not much damage had been done to his truck.  He also reassured me he wasn’t hurt in the slightest! 
Hanging up the phone, I closed my eyes and as the tears started to fall I thanked God.  I was so overwhelmed by God’s protection that all I could say was “Thank You Lord” over and over. 
You see, my husband doesn’t usually drive his truck to work.  The cost of gas has gotten too expensive so he drives my little car, but today my sister was visiting and we were going to need my car, which had the car seat, to go to lunch.  He was going to drive his motorcycle, which I absolutely hated, but when he went to start it up it didn’t work.  That was strange and he was mildly upset that it wouldn’t start; just a few days past it was running fine. 
So taking the truck, he set off to work not knowing that God’s hand was playing a part in keeping him safe.  I would hate to think what would have happened to him if he wasn’t driving his truck. 
That night we both thanked God for his unfailing protection and love.  We also came to an agreement that he would no longer drive the motorcycle during rush hour traffic, something he rarely did anyway since I had such strong feelings against it.   
Looking back, I am overcome all over again with emotion at Gods goodness.  He protected the father of my baby, the love of my life and I can never thank Him enough!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to take part in your blog, I enjoyed sharing my testimony of Gods protection with your readers.
My thoughts and prayers are with you today as you go before the judge (with the time difference, you may have already seen him).
Can't wait to get the praise report!

"give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV

What a great post, TC. There are times when something slows me down from leaving and I soothe my aggravation by telling myself, "Hey, I could have avoided a car accident by running late!" We really never know what mishap has been avoided by life's little delays.

Darby Rae,
Thank you for the compliment.
Good way to soothe the frustration, I try to do the same, but it doesn't always work!
