Oops…. car accident prevented by God…

Five more everything gifted by God saving me from the accident I almost caused… no accident whew… THANKS LORD!

I try to be good but I did allow some divisiveness sneak into my world and I allowed it to make me lose focus…

I got distracted…. without giving details, I’ll just say I saw an evil divisiveness invade a situation not involving me it did… and even though it was diffused (praying Jesus words: “Satan get behind me “), it still it had a ripple effect, and I was distracted rethinking about it while driving… evil sneaks in, therefore we are to be vigilant… I need to send a praise to God to let me see it clearly now… God unmasks the situations… I got His save…

I know we should not be surprised by divisive situations because they will present themselves again and again… they still surprise me because I am human… So we prepare and do the best we can and not let the evil in the world steal our focus or our JOY…. the truth is that JOY…

Therefore my needed self-control is to not let the distractions keep me from obeying the TRUTH – that is a gift from the SPIRIT !! A fruit from the spirit… I am blessed to “keep running the race!” Scripture from Paul says: “The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through LOVE.

“7 You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? 8 That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you…

“22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5

Thanks Lord for the save…

Five MORE minutes…

Thanks Lord for fruits of the SPIRIT…

Thanks Lord for the TRUTH!

Thanks Lord for helping me continue the race!
