                 Yesterday, on my way home from school, I stopped at a gas station to fill up my tank. My friend Haley was in the car with me as we left the station. As I took my left turn onto a large street, another car was turning from the opposite direction onto the same street as I was. I slowed down while they went into their lane and as soon as they were in, I entered mine. Out of no where the car beside me swerved into my lane and my car hit theirs before I had time to react. The force spun their car around, hitting my car on the other side as well.

               The man was over 90 years old. I had my best friend in the passenger seat beside me. Any of us could've died in the blink of an eye. But that wasn't in God's plans. He blessed us with our lives. He blessed me with the lesson that I needed to be more careful and doing so, He nudged me further down His path.

         I want everyone to know that a blessing isn't just something good that God put in your lives. Examples: Car, friends, family, and food. Of course those are blessings, but they aren't the only ones! Getting in a wreck was a blessing for me, and also a punishment. God is just like any other good Father (Except better :D). He will disciple you, He does all the time. But don't stay away from bad things because your afraid God 'will whack you'. He loves you!

Verse:
Deuteronomy 11:27 -  the blessing if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today.

Song: Blessings by Laura Story

'Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise
