Miraculously Pushed into Safety

I am a corporate Pilot and travel frequently all over the world. About 3 years ago I was in Hong Kong on a layover and had several days off before having to fly again. I wanted to get a haircut, but the salon at the hotel was too expensive so I asked at the concierge desk for a recommendation for a local barber. I entered the address in google maps on my phone and set out for the 20 minute walk.

The streets were very busy, all the signs and store fronts were in Chinese, and the cars drive on the left side of the road. While there was a lot of traffic, I would say the average speed between lights was about 30mph. While I was monitoring my phone for the location of the barber shop, I received a text. I was keeping pace with a crowd of people walking on the sidewalk.

All of a sudden I found myself alone in the middle of the street. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something big and blue approaching from the left. It was a double decker bus bearing down on me. At first I thought it wasn’t moving that fast, but soon realized it moving at normal speed. The driver was to high up to see me.  I saw my life flash in front of my eyes, and it was to late for me to react! All of a sudden I felt like I was pushed from behind and leaped forward to keep my balance. It was almost like I was pushed from the wind as I didn’t feel anything touch me. As the bus sped by I could see people on the other side of the street standing on the sidewalk waiting for the traffic. No one seemed to notice that I was almost run over by the bus. The first thing I did was thank Jesus! I am certain it wasn’t just my reflexes that propelled me out of the way. I put myself in harms way and GOD intervened!
