Last month, 16 cars derailed about five kilometers outside of Plaster Rock, N.B. Since the major rail disaster at Lac-Megantic Quebec last summer, there have been at least five significant railway accidents in North America. Transportation Canada approved new safety rules on Boxing Day. Sometimes our lives too can go “off the rails” resulting in personal disaster and pain. When this happens, intervention is necessary. King David experienced many “off the rails” troubles in his life. On one occasion he prayed this beautiful prayer- “Be gracious to me O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in You and in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge until the destruction passes by.” Perhaps you have had bad news and are going through personal trials. If so, I remind you that God loves you, is able and willing to help. I invite you to call on Him. He is waiting.
