Are flat tires messages from beyond?

Dear, Jim: Today when I was out something happened for the first time. I got a flat tire while I was driving. I guess I should consider myself fortunate that this is my first flat while driving. But it made me stop and wonder. Is God possibly trying to get my attention through the flat tire? Is it a sign from God? I've been pushing myself a lot lately and perhaps this is God's way of slowing me down. Maybe God is trying to get my attention for other reasons. I haven't been spending much quiet time with him lately or reading my Bible with any consistency. What are your thoughts, Jim? I'm here on the side of the road at a loss. What does this flat tire mean and how do you think I should respond? Sincerely, Flat Tire Tom * Dear Flat Tire Tom: The most common cause of a flat tire is puncturing of the tire by a sharp object. In the United States, approximately 7 tire punctures occur every second, resulting in 220 million flat tires per year. Statistics show that every driver will experience on average up to 5 flat tires in their lifetime. I've considered and reflected upon all that you said and here's my personal guidance on how to respond to your situation. 1. Turn on your emergency lights. Let other drivers know your car is disabled so they will slow down. 2. Check to see if you have a spare tire and car jack. If you know how to change a tire, go ahead and do it. If not, call for roadside assistance. 3. Upon returning home, try to relax and realize that this happens to every person. According to statistics, it will probably happen to you four more times. 4. The meaning of this ordeal is this: you had a frustrating but common human experience, which had a common human solution. It means nothing more than this. Sincerely, Jim
