Miracle Monday Rewind
It's a new year, and we're going to continue with Miracle Monday. It's so wonderful to share experiences of how God has worked in our lives. To kick off 2014, we're doing a rewind, featuring Miracle Mondays from the first month the Gospel Blog went live in March 2012. We hope you enjoy reading these again — or maybe for the first time.
As we move forward with Miracle Monday, we're going to continue with monthly themes. For February, we'd like to hear animal-related testimonies and miracles. Did the Lord ever give you a testimony or experience related to an animal? We know many of you have beloved pets. Or maybe the Lord protected you from a dangerous animal. Whatever the circumstances, share it with us so we can praise God along with you. Click here to share your story.
Coincidence? I Think Not
By Sister Colleen Moore
When my husband and I were first married, almost 13 years ago, we lived in South Carolina. What a beautiful state it is! We lived there for four years while he was in the Marine Corps. As much fun as it was living there, we both wished we lived closer to our families in Ohio and Michigan. We would often drive back there for the holidays. One year, we started the long drive up to Ohio for Christmas — and that’s when we both experienced an incredible miracle.
Let me paint a picture for you… It was dark outside. My husband noticed we needed gas, and we were in the middle of nowhere. He stopped at an exit and we saw a gas station and literally nothing else for miles. We knew the gas station was closed, but he thought he could still use his debit card. I told him I didn’t think it would work, but we all know that men sometimes think differently than women (wink).
He turned off the car and tried to get the pump to work. No luck. He got back in the car, and when he went to turn it back on, it was dead. Completely dead! It didn’t even make a sound. We both just looked at each other in disbelief. Here we were, two newly married kids in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night, no cell phone, and a dead car!
Good thing we had God by our side (and our big Rottweiler along for the ride). Otherwise, I would’ve been much more nervous than I already was. We decided to wait there to see if anyone drove by. After a while, we started to wonder if anyone would. Soon, a semi-truck pulled in to drop off some gas. Sadly, he couldn’t fill our tank, nor did he have any cables to help jump our car, so he called someone to come help us. I’m not sure who he called, because nobody ever came.
As time passed, we realized nobody was coming. My husband told me he was going to check out the parked cars around the gas station to see if he could find anything to help us. I just sat in the car and prayed for our safety and for help. At this point, we didn’t know what else to do!
My husband happened to glance over at a pick-up truck that was parked nearby, and guess what was in the bed? Not one, not two, not even three or four, but five brand-new batteries and a pair of jumper cables! He came back with a battery and the jumper cables and jumped our car. He put the battery and the jumper cables back in the truck and we praised God! We were able to drive to the next exit where we filled our tank with gas.
Some people may say this was coincidence, but a believer knows this was a miracle.
“But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)
