I was on Facebook this morning when I can across this from Jimmy Wayne Cox and I wanted to share it with you. “When I was in high school I was involved in an auto accident. I remember the oncoming lights, I remember no pain. I could have opened my eyes in heaven; instead I opened my eyes looking at an emergency room floor with blood dripping. Praise God my injuries were minor. I was told later that after the accident I was found under the car that hit us. Yes I have "Guardian Angles" working to protect me!”
I was watching a fishing show as I read this from Jimmy, and the guy landing a fish at the moment I read this was saying “please God, please don’t come off.” Not to be cynical but I wondered to myself is that just a saying or does he really believe that, does he believe in God? Now as Christians we are not to judge others that’s reserved for God himself. I know I have said please God keep that fish on when I’m fighting a fish to the boat. But I truly believe that God can do that if he is willing. Sometimes after I say it, I think about the fact that in the grand scheme of things does it matter to God if I land that fish or not. I truly believe that God cares for us and wants the best for us, but does me landing a fish or not really affect my well being? I would have to say no.
But when I read something like I did from Jimmy, I stop and think about all the situations in my own life that God has cared for me. I have some great kids, an awesome wife and a good life. Like Jimmy I have been in car accidents that I don’t know how I survived, in my mind there have been a few times I should have been dead and now looking back I know the Lord had something planned for me.
Once again I need to share something else Jimmy Wayne Cox shared on Facebook which I feel sums this all up, “GOD'S SALVATION, MERCY, GRACE, PROTECTION, LOVE-That's who I am-That's why I am.” Thanks Jimmy for what you shared on Facebook.
