SON SHINE 2: CLOSE CALL
Lagos, Nigeria, 1994 – I still shudder whenever I remember it. I had no idea that the the right side of the concrete divide was a dual carriageway. The logical thing would have been to cross the road after checking the expected traffic from the right. Somehow, I looked a little to the left and saw a bus suddenly race past.
It is now clear to me that my looking to the left was no coincidence. God directed my eyes, to preserve and allow me appreciate Him more.
?For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.? ? Jeremiah 29: 11
What have such close calls meant to you?
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
