God Our Protector

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. ~ Psalm 36:7 

My husband was scheduled to leave for a long road trip at the end of the week. Before he left for that trip, God displayed His watch care over us in a way we won’t soon forget.

As he had come home the last three days before the trip I heard an unfamiliar humming sound as he pulled his vehicle into the garage. But, when he got out of the vehicle and walked into the kitchen and didn’t comment about the sound I had heard, I told myself, it must not be anything. I assumed he heard it but didn’t think it was anything. Maybe it did that before and I just hadn’t noticed. Maybe it was a weird phase or something! So, I didn’t say anything to him about what I heard.

Then, the third day and last day before his trip, I was bothered that I was still hearing it and he had said nothing. I came out to the garage as he stepped out of his vehicle and asked him if he heard an unusual humming sound and he said no. He turned the engine back on and listened to it from outside the vehicle and of course, he heard it. We both heard it.

We took the Chevy Equinox to a nearby auto repair place before they closed that evening and early the next morning when fixing what turned out to be a small matter with the humming sound, they decided to look the vehicle over since Randy told them he was leaving for a trip as soon as it was ready.

As it turned out, they found that brake fluid had been leaking. It ended up costing quite a lot of money, but what a relief to have this discovered before he ventured out for a long road trip unaware that brake fluid was leaking.

We turned and looked at each other after he got off the phone with the report about the leaking brake fluid and he said, “Thank goodness you spoke up about the humming sound that I didn’t even hear!”

I said, “Thank You Lord for Your protection!” Randy heartily agreed.
