“We will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Heb 4:16 NLT. Today, my errands in the next town took longer than I thought and I ran out of all of my nutritious snacks that I had packed for the trip. As I traveled down the local highway passing the local restaurants, I could smell the delicious aroma of food—most were food that I do not routinely eat. Mind you, I do not have a list of foods that I have eliminated from my diet--that does not work for me, I choose when I will eat them. The temptation was getting to me and I was just about to turn into the parking lot of the “Tasty Spoon” when a car blocked my entrance. There in my car, waiting for the lane to clear again, I realized that I cannot leave God out of my loop for a moment of my journey to a better life. As I focused on Him and prayed, my hunger was forgotten and I drove home to prepare a nutritious meal. God freely gives His blessing to each of us in His own way and His own timing. Today, I was rescued…again.
