Hindsight is kind of like a bird's-eye view of life.
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah ~ Psalm 32:7Remembering that Jesus delivered me from being raped at knife-point (the rapist ended up just stealing money and credit cards), and how He stayed a knife from entering my husband's chest (protecting both Joe and myself), causes me to still drop to my knees in gratitude. The course of my life would have been so radically different.
...God's bird-eyed view just allowed me to see that both those incidents in my life were with a knife. Oh, my gosh...The instrument the invader of my life used - the very instrument that yielded such terror upon me - was the same that I used years later on my own husband. Oh, God...thank You for Your Hand of protection over us; thank You for forgiving me...
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You for Your Grace and Mercy!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
