An Accident of Change

An Accident of Change.

First you need to understand I willingly put myself, my body, through things for the excitement and thrills as a young man, things that lead to multiple broken bones and surgeries. It was a price I was willing to pay because I was the one calling the shots, choosing and planning my moves.

A serious head-on car accident was not of my choosing, there was no planning, no control, just me, my wife and daughter sitting at a red light waiting our turn.

I often wondered if it was the wreck that caused so many changes to the way my brain worked. I suffered through a physical and mental pain greater than anything I could have imagined.

The physical pain prevented me from being able to sleep until the pain medication and exhaustion finally knocked me out only to awake to my own screams from a nightmare that would reoccur each and every time I slept. I had to learn how to spell, walk and pray again.

Before the wreck I had let the troubles of life turn my heart to stone, the accident was the worst and best thing that had ever happened to me. God's amazing grace saved me and my family from death and God's love saved my spirit from eternal pain and suffering.

It is a long road of mental, physical and spiritual healing, it is not a gift given without being dedicated to work for it. From the work come rewards of healing and blessings beyond understanding. My daughter and I will carry physical scares with us through the rest of this life but the blessings from Godís grace far out way the scares and pain that will be removed in heaven.

Ezekiel 51:10 And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
