  • 80 hr weeks catching up with me - demolished my vehicle

    On Saturday we went for the evening church service then went out for coffee afterward. After leaving I pulled out into the main road from the parking lot and was struck by another car. Everyone was ok but both vehicles were totaled. So now we have no car and will have to rent one next week until the insurance gets sorted out.

    My wife pointed out that fatigue may have been a factor, as I've been working 70-90 hour weeks for the past few months. The same day I walked into a display in the drug store and spilled my coffee earlier in the car while sitting still. I truly cannot say how I didn't see the other care coming, wife says the headlights were out, I guess there's no way to know.

    Prayers please for us until we get back in action, that we would get the write-off payment quickly to get organized again, and also for the others involved in the accident. I think they got the worst of it, because it was an older model that will certainly be written off and they probably won't get much for it after the deductible. Our car is a year old so we'll likely get a payout worth enough to pick up another one. Thanks for your prayers.

    Praying for you, for the other folks, and especially for your state of mind.... working yourself to near exhaustion can really take a toll on your health. Keep yourself safe.

    Love is not a place to come and go as we please
    It's a house we enter in, then commit to never leave
    So lock the door behind you, and throw away the key
    We'll work it out together, let it bring us to our knees.....

      Father, Thank You so much for keeping this family safe. Lord You were there to protect them from harm and I am so deeply filled with gratitude.
      Lord, be with the car situation and I pray this will all be behind them quickly.
      Lord, I also ask that you use this family to be a witness to the those that were in the other car. May this situation be used for Your glory.

        NHL - I am and will continue to pray for you. Please, take time from work and any stress related endeavors and sleep. Please - even Jesus went away and rested. We MUST recharge our physical and spiritual batteries to stay at peak performance.

        Prayers and hugs to you and yours and I am also thanking our Father there were no long term injuries.

        Be blessed -
        I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

          NHL, praying for a speedy process on your vehicle. Praising the Lord that no one was is more important!!! Glory to God!! Maybe this is God's way of telling you to "stop and smell the roses!!" Life isn't forever, so enjoy what you can of it...Amen.

          God Bless

              Lifting you and your wife up before the Lord about this important issue of over-work and fatigue, seeing how dangerous it can be. Thanking the Lord that no-one was hurt... a miracle.

                Thank you Lord that no one was hurt. Please help to sort out insurance and give NHL Fever rest and peace

                  How scary! So glad no one was hurt though! I think sometimes we don't see another car coming because when we look they are in a blind spot...where the front windshield attaches to the frame of the car...and if it was after dark and them having no headlines on..yea that would really make them hard to see. I am keeping you all in my prayers and your work slows down so you can get some rest.

                  God bless
                  "People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

                    Thanks for all the prayers. To be honest I didn't feel exhausted, I take pride in working hard. But you're right, sometimes you don't really know until something literally smacks into you.

                      re. all the details of the accident - and that you ensure you have sufficient relaxation in future for your body to rest and recuperate..

                          Praying for the insurance process to go smoothly, for rest and praising thanksgiving nobody was hurt.
                          Seek ye FIRST the kingdom.
                          Not second or third, but first.
                          Only when all else pales to God, when He receives all glory,
                          when He is the source of all hope,
                          when His love is received and freely given,
                          holding not to the world but to the promise to come,
                          will all other things be added unto to you.
