For me, this week has just been further proof of God and His existence in my life. I don't expect you all to see it the same way. I respect that. Always have, always will. But when I look at everything that's happened, I can't help but give praise to God and thank Him for everything.
This is the third accident I've been in where something worse should have happened to me. Where it was stated by police officers and EMS that it was a miracle I walked away from the last two as well as I did. I can't chalk that up to coincidence.
I believe that God could have protected me from the entire accident. But like everything in life, I believe there was a purpose why He didn't. Maybe it was to remind me how great a God He really is. Or maybe, it was to help me see again how much trusting in Him can do.
Where I could have had brain damage, cracked ribs, a broken hip, and broken chest bones, I have only bruising and a slight concussion.
The insurance issues, which I was warned would probably be long and drawn out have all been resolved quickly, and with the insurance company not only being on my side, but fighting to ensure that I get everything I can out of it.
Where they could have found way to rule that I was partially at fault, and given me nothing, they decided that I was innocent before they even started the investigation.
If we get back what we're hoping I'll get back, there's already a car lined up that I could afford. A way to have a vehicle that is not only what I need, but twenty-times better.
But beyond that, knowing that God has had his hand in all this, I've been at peace. Calm and thankful, every day being cheerful, knowing that everything will be okay. I can't really explain it.
Maybe to some, faith is a foolish thing. But for me, it's the reason to keep being positive every day.
Thank you for all your positive thoughts, encouragements and prayers through this everyone.
And thank you, Lord, for having your hand upon me and your angels watching over me.
