"Help us Jesus" was my cry tonight as our car spun out of control. My husband and I had gone into town early to have dinner and see my husbands parents tonight. I had commented that we needed to get home before too many people were on the road that were drinking. It was about 6:00 p.m. I was driving and as we left town we were going around a curve and hit a patch of ice. I never saw it and was driving about 55 miles an hour. It was so unreal what happened. We started spinning around in circles and went off on one side of the road and came back up onto the hightway and spun around and went to the opposite side, came back up and spun around and went to the other side of the road each time leaving the highway. We traveled about a quarter of a mile. We came to a stop right before we hit some trees. It's a miracle that we didn't roll. I told my husband that it just didn't seem real as it was happening. I had no control over my car and that was very frightening.
All I could say was "Help us Jesus" over and over as we were spinning out of control. When we stopped, I couldn't quit praising the Lord. I am so thankful we weren't hurt, our car wasn't wrecked, and that no one else was on the highway at the time. We did have to call a wrecker to come and pull us out. We had a man stop to check on us because he hit the same patch and almost lost control of his vehicle too.
This will be a New Year's Eve that will go down in my history book as one of the many times God supernaturally protected us and I'll never forget it.
I pray a safe and happy New Year to all of you and if you are ever in a bind, call on that precious name of Jesus.
