Just got home from being stuck in snow. I was trying to avoid a car who was stuck in snow. I didn’t realize the road was icy and when i turned the handle and hit the brakes the car just kept sliding straight until the very last moment. It slid to the left and i was able to avoid the car by literally a hair width apart. I’m sure it was God who gave me that little push to the last at the very last moment. (You can skip to the 3rd paragraph to skip the details.)
I won’t complaining that i got stuck in snow for an hour because It was a “Faith in humanity restored” experience. :3 The car that got stuck before me had two old couple in it. They tried calling the roadside assistance but since the road was unpaved, the tow truck wouldn’t come out. They already tried pushing the car out but they had failed. From the sight of it, my car seemed to be stuck slightly less than theirs so i thought that i could probably get wiggle my car out but nope, my car wouldn’t even budge. So I called my dad who was only 2 miles away to come with a shovel. After the call, I saw someone trying to pull out of their drive way and so i literally ice skated my way to him and asked if he had a shovel i could borrow. He went inside his house but wouldn’t come out for quite a while and when he did come back out another man came out with him and told me that cars crash on that road every year because it is unpaved. Anyways, long story short, no shovel, and no help from those men. I went back to the other car that was trying to wiggle their way out. Luckily the car had some friction and gaining some momentum so it could move a little back and forth. It took like 10min but we managed to get their car out. We tried pushing my car too but it wouldn’t even budge an inch. Fortunately, There was a man who came home late at night and he happened to see us. He approached us and saw the situation and offered help right away. He was keeping a shovel in the back of his trunk in handy so he went back and brought it. He started digging and then finally my parents arrived. With the shovel they brought we were able to do more digging and then everybody pushed and the car was out.
This happened at 12:40am. Who would drive past a small unpaved road at this hour? I think Both the car that was stuck and the other man who arrived later were led by God to help me.
1st. The first car was there so that i would avoid getting into a bigger accident. I was going a bit fast than i should have so I’m sure if that car wasn’t there i could have gotten stuck in the snow even deeper or even crashed into a tree or something.
2nd. The other guy who happened to see us was very young. Perhaps in his late twenties or early thirties. If he was old he wouldn’t have been much help. And him having been around at that time was also something that can’t be left to coincidence. There was 1 other car who passed us and didn’t even help us. And the other two men that i had asked for shovels didn’t offer help either but this young man was just so helpful. He even got his feet wet by sticking his feet into the snow to push the car.
Thank you God for such wonderful people you had prepared for me tonight.
Praise and Glory to your name!
