Jesus Take the Wheel


I really don't mean to use Carrie Underwood's song title, but that is exactly how I felt yesterday evening. We set out for a 4 hour drive to my old hometown when soon after we ran into a terrible rainstorm and lightening storm most of our trip.
.
There were times I couldn't even see a car length in front of me. Every time a big semi-trailer would pass me it would splash so much water that my visibility went down to zero. The kids and I were so scared. I tried to pull over but the exits on interstates are so far apart. The grassy areas along the road were too soaked for safety. I really didn't want to pull over on the side of the road either because I was scared that someone would hit our car from behind. So I drove a bit slower, used my hazards lights a lot, and truly drove on a prayer. I hummed a church hymn over and over and over most of the trip. That helped me focus on something greater than the storm; GOD.
.
By the grace of God we finally made it to my mother's house. A 4 hour trip ended up taking 5 1/2 hours. My kids and I are safe and I am so thankful to God for taking care of us. AMEN!

Yoli :)
