Huffing and puffing, my daughter ran two long blocks from the freeway exit ramp to our business office, yelling frantically for help! My brother-in-law was in the yard and called to her, “What is wrong?”
Almost out of breath, she hysterically sobbed, “I was just hit by a bus - - down at the freeway.”
He helped our shaken daughter into the office and to a sofa so she could lie down, while my husband called the police. Grabbing the camera, my brother-in-law rushed down to the freeway and began photographing our demolished station wagon.
A frightened dog, running loose on the freeway had distracted the city bus driver. Consequently, the fact that traffic had slowed and the exit lane was full, escaped his notice. Throwing herself into it, my daughter yanked the steering wheel hard to the right! All the while, her eyes glued to her rear-view mirror, she could see the bus still heading straight for her, without slowing. She was trapped!
It had been raining all morning and because of the slick highways, we had suggested that our daughter use our station wagon for her errands, rather than her small sports car. Had she been driving her Corvette, the possibility exists that she would not be with us today. That thought makes me shudder.
In life, we often wonder why we decide to do something differently than usual. Why did we take a different route to our work place? How was it we made an unplanned stop at the store, or yielded to other unexplained actions? Was it just a bright idea?
Some might call it a hunch or a premonition - - but it is more than that. I firmly believe that God has arranged for Angels to watch over us for our protection. There is something else. A still small voice within our spirits often prompts us to make decisions that may not be customary. This is the Holy Spirit guiding us in the correct and proper direction.
So, next time you get a “Hunch,” stop and seriously consider following it. It just could save your life, your job, or your marriage!!
