I know that the Lord’s protection is always around us and it’s good to give Him thanks and praise everyday. Last night I went along to Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament, at Melbourne’s St Patrick’s Cathedral (it’s on every Thurs night). There were five of us from our parish of St Anthony – all girls – so we decided to go out for a meal afterwards. We got into my car and I began to pull out of the parking spot. My car stalled, which is not big news,lol, – I thought it was a bit odd – not something that happens to me usually but didn’t give it any more thought and moved on. Approx. 50 metres down the road I see a car fly past in front of me very fast – he didn’t stop at the give way sign but went on ahead. I managed to stop in time narrowly missing him …. my jaw just dropped – all I could say was “praise you Jesus”. The others in the car were the same.
Then a few minutes later, one of the girls pointed out to me that if my car hadn’t stalled we would have been hit directly by that car … on my right.
Coincidence? I don’t think so. The Lord’s protection was well and truly with us last night. We had just been in His presence and it was a beautiful time with Him. Would He not have watched over us, as He always does?
How many times do we not know that we were in any danger, yet protected? ….. We are always thankful to the Lord because His mighty Love and Mercy endures forever.
Thank you Jesus. Praise you Lord.
