One thing I have noticed about driving is that I hate to drive. It is so dangerous! Every day I see 1…2… sometimes 3 wrecks.
Yesterday at 3 different times I was almost in a wreck. At one point someone was driving in my lane, weaving in and out of cars and I had to swerve over, but there was a car on my other side too and that was almost a wreck. Another time a guy was getting on the highway and didn’t even look to see if anyone was there. Almost another wreck.
I try to put as much space in between cars as I can because I feel so unsafe driving.
I don’t ever remember it being this way. I don’t ever remember seeing wrecks. I don’t remember people almost hitting me. I don’t know if it is because I am putting almost 3 hours of driving time in a day. Or maybe it is just a different time and age where people just don’t care, they are on their cell phones, they aren’t paying attention or they are in a hurry. Or maybe it is because I was the one in the hurry back then. And I was on my cell phone, weaving in and out of cars, not paying attention. I didn’t slow down enough for anyone to catch up to hit me.
Getting rear ended out of nowhere last week really shook me up. I am so aware of everyone around me and it is scary. I am scared to be on the road sometimes.
Lord, I thank you for your safety. I thank you that each day You encamp your angels around my car as I drive. Thank You for protecting me. I pray that You would be around these other cars as well and put a peace in these driver’s minds so they are not in a hurry. Lord, slow people down. Thank You God that You are our Safety. You are our Strength. I can trust You with my life! Amen.
