Now, That’ll Wreck Your Day!

7 06 2013

Driving home from Santa Rosa one night, my nerves were as tense as a drum head. It was about two in the morning, and the elk traveled that highway at night.

To hit an one of these majestic creatures while driving a compact car, well, that’ll wreck your day for sure.

I was on high alert, my eyes peered into the darkness outside the headlight beams. I hoped to spot the large animals in time to avoid a collision.

Suddenly, in my mind, I “saw” my car hit one. My body was instantly upright, and I popped through the roof of my car like a piece of toast ejected from a toaster. Quick as a wink, I shot through space and was caught in Jesus’ arms. I’d have passed Him by if He hadn’t caught me. Jesus was chuckling at the surprised look on my face.

Just that fast, I was no longer afraid. Instead I began the “wheet, wheet” whistle of a person who called their dog. “Here, elk! Here, elk!” I called merrily.

When the Lord brings the light of truth to our darkest dread, fear flees!

A few weeks later I drove to the store. I saw a large black butterfly as it flitted around me – and then it swooped in front of me.

The instant I imagined it hit my grille, I “saw” it gently pushed through a gossamer-thin veil where it became the most beautiful iridescent blue I’d ever seen. The world around it was too stunning for words. “Pure color” is the only thing that comes remotely close. It was amazing.

In 1 Corinthians 2:9, 10 we read, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit.”

Why He chose to give me these “visions,” I don’t know, but I can tell you this:

Death has lost it’s ability toย wreck my day!

No. My kids moved to Hawaii for four years – then to Florida. I don’t have to make that trip anymore. Now it’s deer when I go to Oregon to see my youngest daughter!

He does indeed take the “sting” out of death but sometimes it still hurts. I don’t fear death much but sometimes I do fear the hurt. Either way, fear is not from God and love it when He encourages us in special ways like He did for you ๐Ÿ™‚ Just curious but Santa Rosa, California?

God has made you a seer. Whenever, fear comes knocking, Jesus and his love shines and destroys the fear.

There is no one like him. He loves us in spite of our mess.

Seen through the eyes of grace, even the “commonplace” becomes beautiful. “He has made everything beautiful in its time,” Ecclesiastes 3:11.
