Psalms 121:1-2 " I will lift up my eyes to the hills. From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth."

Revised 2-1-19

Have you ever been going somewhere have someone follow you, while you're walking or driving somewhere? It's enough to send chills up your spine, as you have no idea what their intentions are or if they're in their right mind, so its important to be aware of your surroundings especially if your alone.

I live in a small coastal town, where crime is low and shopping is limited to Safeway, Rite aid, Walgreen's and the outlet mall, which may be suitable for most folks, but not for me. I'm the kind of person who like variety, adventure, fun and gets bored easily. So every so often, I have to break away from the dull-drums of small town living and escape to the nearest city an hour and half away.

But I never leave home without my driving buddy. You see, I believe God wants to be part of every aspect of our life, so I always invite him to come along,besides he would anyway.

My drives to the city are usually uneventful, but on this particular day, I a red compact car had been behind me for several miles and had changed lanes every time I did. I thought it was kind of odd but didn't pay much attention to them.When the next passing lane came up, I whizzed by several cars then pulled in behind a semi filled with hay, thinking I'd gotten rid of that annoying red car.

But then, they pulled into the oncoming lane, playing chicken with the traffic and barely made it back into their lane one car behind me.

That wasn't the first time, I'd seen people do crazy things while driving down the road, but putting their lives at risk like that made me cringe. If there had been a safe place to pull off the road, I would have called the police and reported it. But there wasn't so I kept going, and whispered a quick prayer that their recklessness wouldn't cause them or anyone else harm. The red car stayed behind me, till I got to the four lane highway, then sped passed me and kept going. I breathed a sigh of relief and glanced at the passenger seat next to me and whispered Thank you God for being my driving buddy.

My situation with the reckless driver, was a minor one from my perspective, but maybe

my quick prayer for help kept the situation from getting worse.

Psalms, 121: 1-2 says our help comes from God who made the heavens and the earth. The God who is a high tower in times of trouble, peace in the midst of chaos, provision in times of lack, hope when all seems lost. The great I am, the one who parts the waters and the gentle Shepard who leads us to green pastures and still waters. The God who never forsakes us and has a good plan for our lives. He's the one who made heaven and earth and tell us to call on him no matter what kind of problem we face and he will answer.
