Don Clark recalls the time he and some buddies were returning to their ship after a leave in France during the last few days of World War II. They missed the transport boat that was to take them back to their aircraft carrier which was anchored in the Mediterranean. A sudden storm blew in and sank the transport boat, and all who were on board drowned.
At that time, Don was not yet a Christian. He is thankful that God gave him the time to turn his life over to Jesus.
Sometimes it’s a good thing to “miss the boat”, but not when it comes to accepting Jesus!
