Getting Stuck

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Yesterday went pretty much according to plan until I got my car stuck in the parking lot at DD2s gymnastics place. It's a dirt/gravel parking area and it's VERY muddy right now due to melting and all. Anyway, when we showed up there weren't any regular parking spots, so I figured I'd just pull off along the edge and park there so I was out of the way for people trying to leave. It all made sense until I realized when I tried to move it that I was stuck in soft mud. Several people asked if I needed help, one guy tried to push me out but I was too stuck. I called DH and he came with DS but we ended up having to ask a guy with tow strap in the back of his pick-up to pull me out. That guy was my hero, a helper sent from the Lord! My car came out just fine with that gentle pull and I was back on schedule with the rest of my evening plans.

Sometimes, we can feel like that, right? I mean we do something without giving it much thought (overeat, get in a bad relationship, act out in anger, etc.) and before we know it we're stuck in a bad situation and we can't get out. We look around for help, but sometimes we need more than what anyone around can provide. In those times, I stop and realize only God can step in and restore me to a healthy place again...physically, mentally, spiritually. He gently attaches his tow rope of grace and love and pulls me out of the muck so I can get a fresh start and move on, following the path He sets me on. Like a fool, sometimes I find my way back to the mud, but My Hero is always there with his tow rope to rescue me. God is SO GOOD! Praise His Gracious Name!!
