Everything is Going to be Okay
I posted this story on my Instagram and my personal Facebook page, but I wanted to post it here too. Sometimes life happens and changes your priorities and gives you a clearer outlook on life.
I have been feeling lost and confused about life lately, wondering how our family is going to make it now that we are expecting a new baby and needing a new place to live. It's not all crystal clear now, but instead of worrying about those things, I am now fully trusting that God will take care of my family.
While getting ready for church last Sunday morning I was having a hard time fixing my hair to make it look “just right.” That wasn’t happening and we were already running late for our ministries. Annabella was still in her PJs and asking to be held and cuddled. Being pregnant and hormonal, I became frustrated and told Jeremy that I didn’t want to go, so he was going to take Annabella and go to church. I said, "No, let’s see if your parents can pick up Annabella and I on their way to church so you can just go be there for our turn at the welcome desk." So Jeremy left for church and I hurried to finish getting ready.
Then he called me saying that he wasn’t going to make it to church because he hit a patch of ice and went off the road. And that the car was upside down laying in an embankment.
The shock hit me right away. I could have been with him. Our baby girl could have been with him. This story could have a totally different outcome.
Instead, Jeremy walked away without a scratch. His knee was a bit bruised but that was about it. God was watching over us and protecting us. God was with Jeremy in that car. He kept Annabella and I safe at home. God listened the night before as Jeremy prayed for our family and for our protection.
I’m shocked and completely in awe that God kept my husband safe. I am happy that we’re all okay ❤️ we’ll figure out the details of getting a new car later. Right now we are going to hug each other and not let go.
