I’m one of those people who’s super careful when driving. Always paying attention, letting those who seem to be in a rush go ahead even if I have right of way… and then one day, I had an accident.
It was the strangest thing. I can’t explain what exactly happened. I was attempting to park and somehow I put the car in drive instead of reverse. It all happened in seconds and by the time I realized what was going on, it was too late. I had run into another car, a stationary car, my father’s car. Sigh. I quickly parked and came down. My mind was racing, I couldn’t believe what had happened. I had hit my dad’s car. I went up to tell my mum what happened, she told me to calm down.
When my dad got home, I told him what had happened. He responded saying it was nothing, like it was not a big deal. How? I was worried, upset, trying to understand what happened, over analyzing things. And then he told me it was okay, it was just an accident. That was it.
If my earthly Father could be so forgiving, imagine all the things our Heavenly Father does for us. God is so merciful, so full of grace. This incident was a reminder of the Father’s love. He forgives all, no matter how bad things were… I wasn’t held ransom for hitting my dad’s car, same way God doesn’t hold us ransom for sins committed- He has forgiven all. Quit over analyzing your sins, leave all at His feet.
He loves You ❤️
