PRAISES FOR PROTECTION

Post by RnestseekR on Sat Sep 13, 2008 7:33 pm

On Wednesday night of this week, I dreamed that a black truck was coming at me with great speed, just as it was to hit me, it dissipated. Then a white truck came at me. Again, just as it was about to hit me, it dissipated. Finally, a red truck - same scenario. I did not post the dream, I felt like there was a literal interpretation. Needless to say, I prayed for protection while driving all day on Thursday and was extra cautious, especially at stoplights! Thursday passed but the dream did not, so I thought perhaps I had been protected since the scenario never evolved.
But last night (Friday), I had to go to a memorial garden dedication for godson who passed away the end of June in a nearby town. I was NOT going to miss it, despite some bad weather in the area. I left early to allow plenty of time. Little did I know, there were tornadoes throughout the entire metro. Believe me, had I known, we would not have gone. Anyways, just as I was getting ready to cross the Missouri River on a major highway, I hit flash flooding. There was no where to go - cement barracades on my R (I was in the far L lane), flooding waters everywhere, and I could not see out my windshield. When I hit the flood waters, my engine stalled. I quickly freaked - the engine would not start! I tried to call 9-1-1 but could not get through - I imagine b/c of the weather of the night. Then, looking into my rearview mirror was the black truck I had seen in my dreams. I really started to freak. I had my 3 kids in the car with me. The black truck had no way of knowing that I was not on the median (there was no median going onto the bridge), that I was stoppped - not just going to slow - and that they were about to hit the same flashflooding that I'd hit. Even if they realized all this, could they keep control of their truck and not hydroplane? I told my kids to brace themselves that we were going to be hit . . . and just as I got ready to say the word "now", the truck regained control and moved over a lane. Then, true to my dream, the white truck came within another minute. I told my kids the same thing and just as I was sure there was going to be impact, the truck came to a halt and went around us. I started looking for the red truck, knowing it was coming. It did. She stopped. This was the end of my dream so I thought I'd better get some help. I got out of my vehicle. The flood waters had receded and were now only over the tops of my feet. I flagged the driver down and asked her to push be across 3 lanes of traffic to the median on the right. She agreed. When her truck made contact with my vehicle, I tried one more time and my vehicle started!!! I then made it across the bridge. I had moved into the R lane and gone another 100 feet and hit flood waters again! This time, though, the waters were not so high and left me with some momentum when my engine stalled. I was able to coast onto the median, wait a while and my vehicle finally started. I only missed the first half of one song of my the memorial/garden dedication.
I thank God for his protection over me and my 3 kids. I thank the Holy Spirit for the dream, I stayed much more calm (not as calm as I should have - call me Peter!), and didn't make a rash decision like pulling my kids out into the flood waters. I thank Jesus for His love for me! May God receive the highest glory!!! I cannot put into words the closeness I feel to Jesus. Indeed, if he clothes the lillies of the field and feeds the birds in the air, will He not take care of me also!?!
