Joshua James of Florida threw a three and a half foot alligator through a Wendy’s drive-thru window. Then he took his drink and drove off. The alligator was captured and released in the wild. No one was hurt. Imagine the look on the faces of the other customers! It was “bizarre.” It just goes to show that you don’t know what to expect when you wake up in the morning. Although this event of the alligator is trivial, it does prove that life can throw many unexpected events in our path, such as accidents, sudden illness, severed relationships, loss of jobs and more. The Psalmist told us what to do when the unexpected comes. He wrote “When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.” Do you know who the Rock is? It’s the Lord Jesus, the Rock of Ages. In our distress, when unpleasant surprises come, we can turn to Him.
