I am still really shook up, but I really needed to let everyone know about this. God has once again amazed me, this time in a way I never thought he would. On Sunday, my boyfriend and I were on the freeway driving to his mother's house. It was a beautiful day. My boyfriend had just gotten back from a 2 week trip and I was so happy to be with him. Things however went bad really fast.. We were going 75 in the fast lane behind a truck that was going a little slower. The truck reluctantly turned its turn signal on and proceded to drive in both our lane and the lane they were merging into. My boyfriend was driving close, but not extremely close when the truck got a bit of road rage and swerved back into our lane and cut us off. My boyfriend slammed on the brakes and lost control of his Chevy Tahoe. We swerved all over the road before spinning out into a ditch. We rolled one time, and then rolled again, landing on the passenger side of the car.. my side. The window shattered, and I had no idea what was going on. I was in complete shock. We crawled out of the sunroof with the only injury being a little cut on my foot. Glory to GOD! The amazing part was that I had an intuition that I was going to be okay, not once did I get scared. The other amazing part was both myself and my boyfriend were in our seats and did not move an inch. Our heads and necks were able to look forward as if we weren't even rolling. When my window shattered, I got not a single shard of glass on me. It makes completely no since at all. The only thing that does make since is GOD was with us, and it will forever change my life. In that split moment in time, all of my prayers were answered. No, I didn't pray to help us, I didn't even have time. I'm talking about answers that I have needed for a long time, If I was living life the way I should, What the purpose of my life was, the need for confidence.. I know now that it doesn't matter what people think of me, being judged for not doing the "cool things" in life, such as drinking.. ect. Nothing matters. The only one I will be judged by is the LORD. And the only thing I want to do now is appreciate his creations; nature, my family and friends. I know now everything I was doing in my life that a shade of grey needs to stop and I now recognize what those shades of grey are.
On the same day, two people our age happened to get into the same kind of accident, they didn't make it, and I know I owe everthing to GOD, because without him I wouldn't be here today.
Life is just a speck in time, no one is going to live forever and no one knows when they will take their last breath.. Heard it a million times before but never believed it. Life is such a precious gift.. a Gift from God and it should be devoted to him.
Thanks for listening to me,
