God above the Storm

Testimony Alert 🚨: God has me covered on all sides! A tree and a light pole fell on my car last night in one of the worst storms I’ve ever experienced in my life, and my ride sustained MINIMAL damages!

Last night as I was on the phone with My Elizabeth and her son. We watched as fierce lightening bombarded the sky! We were terrified! It looked like the scene of a scary movie. The storm slowly moved into the city and I caught it and y’all! The thunder and lightening, the hail and the rain were SO heavy that I thought my windows on my house would break. I turned off all my lights, unplugged my internet box, and got in the bed. I laid down, because that was all I had the capacity to do. Her and her son hung up the phone and there was just me and God.

I didn’t have kids to comfort or comfort me. I didn’t have a man to bury my head in his chest and he tell me everything is going to be ok. I had me and God. So, in a gentle voice, I prayed.

As I was praying, I heard Him say in my spirit, “Why are you afraid?” I asked Him what he said, and He repeated Himself, “Why are you afraid?” Immediately Psalms 23 and a scripture in 1 John flooded my mind and heart, “Perfect love casts out all fear.” I recited the scriptures and thanked God for His great love for me. Then I felt it. While the hail crashed into my windows, while the lightning and thunder rolled, I felt the peace of God. The peace passed all understanding and was guarding my heart from fear. I slept like a baby!

When I woke up this morning, I turned my phone on and I had a voicemail from my grandmother, “Hey baby, a tree fell on your car. Check it out in the morning.” WHAT?! I panicked! I jumped up and threw on shoes and ran outside. Not only did a tree fall on my car, a light pole did too! Randomly a man in t-shirt and shorts was outside with a garden hoe, clearing out the drains because the streets were flooding.

He asked if this was my car and I said yes and took pictures for my insurance. He walked around my car and said that he thinks I’ll have minimal damage and all I have to do is pull forward. I looked at the bottom of my car glowing. The way the light pole fell, the bulb was directly behind my back tire so if I pull forward, I wouldn’t roll over it. He helped me clear branches and I got in the car.

I pulled the car up, feeling the branches scratch it, and my car after pulling up a few feet was free. The light that was under my car was still on (catch it!! #thatwillpreach). Y’all! I walked around my car and took pictures, MINIMAL DAMAGE!!! A dent and a few scratches, but not totaled! GOD HAS ME COVERED ON EVERY SIDE!!!!

I rolled around the block thanking Him, and pulled into my grandmothers driveway and parked my car there. God is awesome y’all! I am loved! I am protected! His hand is on those who trust Him! Thank you Jesus for protecting all that pertains to me! You are FAITHFUL!

Be encouraged! Put your trust in God! You are covered!
