I remember when my Pk and I first got married. We used to do a lot of night waka. We would go out and maybe go see a movie or just do dinner or ice cream and drive home really late since the roads would be free. I’m talking 1am or 2am kind of waka.
So one of those nights we were coming back home. Pk was driving and a car passed us on the other side of the road. I’m not sure exactly why he was so excited about the car of what he was trying to show me but the next thing I heard was a loud bang!!! We had landed into a big horrendous pot hole which had ripped out tyre. We managed to move the car to the side of the very lonely road. Right up on Apongbo bridge. You know that place where “area boys” sit.
First of all it was almost 2am every where was deserted. No one anywhere. We had a flat tyre and the wheel cover needed a certain kind of wrench to remove the lock on the cover. It was dark because in Nigeria, street lights are a luxury. It occurred to me that
Because truly there seemed no way to get out of this one. We couldn’t leave the car there and we couldn’t drive it out of there. We couldn’t get a cab or bus out of there because there was none and even if there was we had just exhausted all the cash we had. No ATM around. No über to call. Boy, did we have problems.
As we stood by the car trying to figure out what to do. A car drove by and parked right in front of ours. The guy got out. Asked us what the problem was. We told him. He looked at the wheel cover and walked back to his car. Honestly I thought the guy was going to drive off because he wasn’t driving the kind of car we were so I felt he wouldn’t have that special wrench needed. It was actually more like a screw key. But surprise surprise after about 3 minutes he was back with the exact key. What are the odds? He asked if we had a torch of course not! So he went back to his car and voila torchlight in hand. He hands it over to my Pk and next thing I know he rolls up his sleeves and proceeds to change the tyre. Once he’s done he takes his screw key and torch light says goodnight, runs to his car. I mean literally sprints. Jumps into his car and speeds off.
Till today we can’t explain it. I’ve tried but it doesn’t make sense. I think he was an angel (because he was also dressed in white- but hey! What are the odds right?)
All I know is he was help when we really needed it… When it really mattered.
Today I’m thankful that I have a God who is faithful and will never leave us or forsake us. A God who is a very present help… When we really need it… When it really matters.
I pray in this month of June that you will experience that kind of help in Jesus name.
