The "Tire" – The Power of The Word

It’s amazing how the Universe works….

How often have we told you that you must ask for wisdom first. Anne has told you the story of when she was first learning metaphysics and was so anxious to have that “power of the word”. Then one day she walked outside and her son was way up high in a tree. She gasped and yelled “John, get down from there. You’ll fall and kill yourself.”

At that moment she realized “Thank God I don’t have the power. John would have fallen had my word been all powerful.” She realized she had to ask for wisdom first.

Why am I bringing this up? I had a similar experience yesterday.

On Monday, as I was driving home I saw that there had been an apparently bad accident for many areas were blocked off and there were men in what looked like Hazmat suits. I later heard that they were cleaning up the accident. I simply mused “I hope they clean it up well so that there isn’t any glass on the road tomorrow when I come home.”

I never gave it another thought.

Not even yesterday when I made that turnaround – right over the affected area and actually over the part of the road where they would have swept debris away.

Approximately 1 1/2 miles away I had to pull over with a really, really flat tire.

I am amazed that this happened – sure you can say it’s just a coincidence but I don’t think so.

You want to hear the rest of the story – all of which raises the hairs on my skin?

Sometimes it takes things like this to show how blessed we are:

1) This past weekend I drove to and from Dallas, Tx (600 plus miles). I didn’t have any problems!

2) I was on my way home from work and not on the way to work – I didn’t have to worry about being late nor did I have to worry about as much traffic.

3) One of the guys whom I adore and who has done a great deal of work for me was available to help and not far away.

  •   This man does my Pest control and he was supposed to come last week but I had to reschedule until today.
  •   I probably wouldn’t have bothered him if he hadn’t been on his way to my house anyway.

4) A young man who lived right there came out and helped me until my other friend came. As it turns out he has the greatest idea for a “charity” that I’ve heard in so long. I will share that with you in a separate post.

5) My car, although very awkward to get the spare down from underneath the rear, has a regular tire, not one of those dinky little 50 mile tires.

Think about these things…..find out what great wonder came out of this flat tire and apply it to your life.

I could just mope around about this but instead I choose to see all the blessings from the incident.

  1. Terrie, you always surprise me. I never expected you’d find so many blessings in this incidence of wishing a flat tire on yourself. Your thought seemed so mild to me that I didn’t really think you were opening yourself to a flat tire. And it seems from my point of view, there more lots of blessings eager to happen.

    Of course, I wasn’t the one sitting helpless at the side of the road. Never a good time as I’ve discovered in the past. It’s a rare person who stops to help–at least in my neck of the woods. Or maybe I’m using the power of the word against myself.

    So much to think about here! Thank you!

  2. Thanks Karen,
    I’m slow to respond for alot of reasons. You would be amazed because my thought was powerful with emotion even though perhaps fleeting. But I have seen this happen time and again in my life. So I live and learn.

    Thanks for commenting


  3. I have received and given so much more in life since I have started my spiritual path in understanding the Power of the Word. In God’s good Grace I am open to actually see the gifts in my life now. It is amazing and joyous how much we are given when we simply put our minds, thoughts and words in alignment with our Higher Power. I have received checks (expected and not expected) in an expediated way; I have been gifted food, gas and friendships that were not seen before. I feel my children and loved ones relaxing around me. My conversations are more meaningful, and my understading keeps evolving. To say the least, I can now go inside and not fear the outside. This is a wonderful ride, life; and I am grateful I can choose to enjoy every moment of every day with love and light. Thank you for your writings.

  4. Lisa,
    I’m so glad things are going so well for you. It is obvious that you’re a living example of how glorious a life can be once we take a step down the correct path and begin to control our own life.

    Thanks for sharing this with everyone


  5. I am so glad for your belief and blessings. I am glad to know the powers are there still. My life of the past four years has been so hard that I have thought about ending it as not being worthwhile to live anymore,
    but that’s ‘against my religion’. The harder I look to see the good and the love in every thing, and every one, the more futile I feel my own life is, and what a waste it is. I’m breathing good air someone else more worthy could use, and I feel guilty and apologetic for it, but to what avail is that? None. As yet. I can still look for and be glad of and for people like you. I wish you wellness and happiness with all my heart.
