I can’t remember where I first saw this, but I thought the analogy was so true. And as it was raining as I sat down to type this, it just seemed to fit that I should post it.
It’s what I am gradually learning: that God always is there for us even if we feel alone or abandoned. He is so faithful! Often though, we are reluctant to trust in the “umbrella” of faith He gives us – something I am also learning!
Doesn’t this remind you of Psalm 23?
I experienced this myself today, where I was not paying proper attention and as a result was nearly run over by a car backing out of a driveway. It really made me realise that had I not noticed in time or the driver not slowed to a halt, I may have met my maker a lot sooner than I would have otherwise anticipated! When one considers that the only reason we are able to breathe is because He is sustaining the universe, one can only begin to contemplate how “He shields [us], though [we] may not always see.” How amazing is that?
