This morning I rushed through my time with the Lord, and ultimately paid for that almost immediately! Well with in the hour, I dropped off my riders at the HS, and the bus infront of me decided to park which left me little to no room to clear her as I left there. I hit my mirror on the back corner of the other bus. OKAY! Totally embarrassing! Among things like Idiot girl (to myself), now I must get out of the bus see the damage, and correct my mirror! I still have an hour and a half to pick up and drop off kids. When the other driver approached me, I prayed…”hold my tongue…or she is not getting Jesus today!” Well He did hold my tongue, and she was very kind and gracious to me, and even helped me to back my bus so that I could clear her. Seems she will be sitting in that postion everyday now. Ultimately my fault for stopping too close to her, and for my own ignorance in not knowing that bus will be sitting there…it wasn’t there all last week. UUUUUUUGGGGHHHH!!!!!!
Now I am praying that nothing else will happen as I continue. I am praying all the things I did not pray before I proceeded on with my day. HE was very clear in that bus, as HE reminded me that I had no time for HIM this morning, and passively thought I would just catch up later in the day. Some can get away with that…but not me! I am on the short leash and for my own good!
I returned to the bus company and let my boss know what I had done, and he turned bright red..but only said.”don’t wreck my buses” not even in a loud voice. Believe me I was prepared for the worst! Needless to say I went back to my home and got in the Word, and sought the Lord with all my heart. The short thing that I read early this morning I looked over again too. There was my warning that I so quickly passed off…2Chronicles 31:21 “in every work that he began in the service of the house of God in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.” (italics mine) Henry Blackaby – “When you do not resolve to seek the Lord, calamity is the inevitable result.” :>) got it!!
