Last year my wife and I and our two youngest daughters went to a wedding in Nova Scotia Canada. We decided that even though it was late we would make the three hour drive to home. A few folks said to watch out for deer and moose on the roads after dark. I had already been somewhat aware of that problem but thought for sure it was pretty good advice. Being a person that believed in and relied on God regularly I asked God to help me be alert and keep me aware of this situation because it was late and quite dark.
About an hour into the drive I was sure i saw a deer in the corner of my eye beside a guard rail. After this I made sure I stayed alert because we were into deer country.
All was quiet as we drove along. We were about 30 minutes from the bridge to Prince Edward Island when we saw flashing red lights. As we approached we saw a monster moose dead in the middle of the road. I couldn’t believe how big he was. It was hit by a truck and the truck was damaged pretty good but there were no injuries.
After we passed I gave thanks to God for keeping me alert. I had asked my God to keep me safe and He did because He loves me and He hears me and He answers me.
Maybe if I didn’t understand my God enough, didn’t love Him like I do, didn’t trust Him like I do, MAYBE I would have hit that moose with my little Honda. It is a great and wonderful thing to know the creator of this universe and His Son Jesus.
