A few weeks ago, I was in a car accident.

It happened so fast that I vaguely recall noticing a car out of the corner of my eye….as I approached the intersection I looked to my left and it was clear. I looked to my right and….BOOM!

In an instant, I saw the car, attempted to swerve, heard a very loud noise and remember spinning. I came to a stop about half a block away after a complete 360.

It all happened in just a few seconds…and two weeks later, I am still dealing with the ramifications.

Fortunately for me, the other driver admitted to running the stop sign without even attempting to stop. Fortunately, I have good insurance that covers it (he has insurance coverage issues), so I received a rental car and a cash settlement for my totaled car.

Since the accident I have been on the phone with insurance adjusters, rental car specialists, a tow company and a lot of people selling used cars.

Ultimately one oversight by one driver at the wrong time and  not only does my life flash before my eyes, I get several more boxes added to my to do list.

This past week, millions of people went to the voting booth to decide on our next Commander in Chief…and whether you like it or not, those effect of those decisions will be felt for years to come.

This Sunday we are finishing out our series on relationships from Romans 13. I am looking forward to sharing a sermon regarding our relationship with our next President. I am pretty sure that when we take an honest look at Scripture we will experience hope and be encouraged.

If you get some time, I suggest you read through Romans 13 and make sure you plan to join our New Life family for services at 10:45am…just make sure you look both ways when crossing the street :).
