Dear St. John’s,
Earlier this week, I got a flat tire while driving home from Trenton. I could have ranted at the inconvenience and unfairness and expense of it all. Instead, I find myself feeling gratitude.
I’m thankful that it didn’t happen while I was driving at high speed on a highway. That I didn’t get into an accident. That I got out of work early, so I wasn’t late for the Got Faith meeting St. John’s was hosting. That a kind stranger advised me on putting air into the tire, tried to fix the malfunctioning tire stem and then changed the tire for me when it became clear the stem was broken and the tire thus couldn’t hold air.
In short, I felt as though God had been watching out for me.
God does watch out for us and eases many a sticky situation. If we pay attention, we can notice and give thanks.
Where have you noticed God’s providence in your life lately?
