~FOUL BALL~ By Belinda
I am notorious for being a klutz. If accidents were looking, they’d find me. I am not kidding! Let me just list some of the crazy things that have happened to me in the past month…
I hit a curb and blew out a tire
I tripped on the sidewalk outside my building and fell
I cut my hand while slicing onions
I broke a favorite coffee mug
I burned cookies—three times!
I burned my forehead with the straightener
That’s just what I can remember, but I am sure that there were more! The most recent incident was at the ball park last week. I went to my son’s baseball game and was walking toward the field when my phone rang. I pulled it out of my back pocket and looked to see who was calling. Since it was my husband, I answered. As I put the phone to my ear, I heard what seemed like the whole ball field yelling “Heads Up!” Those words always startle me, so I looked up to see if I could locate the ball. Just about that time, that little white ball hit the ground in front of my feet.
Although it seems that I have many accidents and close calls, I completely believe that God is actively protecting me. There are just too many times where I’ve walked away from accidents without a scratch.
So, what’s the big deal? God continually places His hand on my life. I see His evidence multiples times every day. These GodSTOPs, as I call them, are blessings from Jehovah Ro’i, the Lord, my Shepherd.
I’m so thankful for His marvelous protection and great grace!
