Crisis Averted

We’ve all had a moment like this. You hear of a tragedy and realize after that, you narrowly averted being directly involved. Thursday May 23rd, I worked in Lynden for the day and drove home that evening without giving thought of anything in particular, except that I forgot to stop in Mount Vernon to pick up a few home supplies. About the time I realized all this, my phone began to chirp with alerts about the I-5 bridge collapse over the Skagit River. Had I stopped to get the milk and toilet paper, at best I would have been stuck north of the bridge, and at worst...well, let’s not dwell on that. Thank God he was watching out for not just me, but all the travelers on the bridge that day.

While God can and often does cause us to avert danger, He doesn’t always. Right now, people all around us are in the middle of what feels like the worst crisis of their lives. That’s precisely why every song and every word on SPIRIT 105.3 is so important. For the one in the crisis (and perhaps that’s you), the hope and encouragement on SPIRIT 10.53 are a life rope to rescue them from the cold river of their present trial.  If we can pray for you and your situation…great! It’s our highest privilege. Let us know how to pray for you by contacting our prayer team by clicking here.

 In Him,

Matt Stockman
