As I braced for impact in the passenger seat, I could see the young man’s face clearly as his truck came head on into our lane – there was no where to go – all I could think was, “Lord, I’m not ready yet.”
This is how my week ended, after facing a series of attacks by the enemy; his final blow, however, being the most devastating, resulting in a crisis situation as Gabriel, Matthew and I came head on with another vehicle.
After the impact, I was jolted out of my initial shock by Matthew’s terrified scream, not able to move, I felt helpless as I waited for help to arrive.
We were battered, bruised, and bandaged but, as you can see from the photo, we’re so thankful to be ALIVE.
I couldn’t imagine going through this experience without faith and without my wonderful husband. Watching him remain calm and tend to Matthew and I in the middle of the chaos gave me an even deeper love for this man God has blessed me with. And then hearing Matthew pray over us all in the ambulance – words can’t even describe. You see, I could have missed all of this if I would have allowed myself to be beaten by the enemy, but even in the midst of crisis, God is at work.
If anyone says “there’s NO God” then they just don’t “KNOW God”.
Maybe Satan has waged war on you? Maybe you’re battered, bruised, and bandaged but maybe – just maybe God is at work in the midst of it.
Reclaim victory. Refuse to be beaten and allow what Satan has meant for harm to be used by God for good.
(PS As I sat in the car after the accident, waiting for paramedics to arrive, this song was still playing in the radio: https://youtu.be/uHz0w-HG4iU )
God is good.
Welcoming all your prayers for healing and strength.
