Ski Accident

Last January, my Lord Jesus did something amazing in my life; giving me a testimony that I hope really encourages others. My brother, Dad and I really enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the wintertime, and on January 3rd, just like any other day we were skiing it up, having a great time. That is, until I had an accident. I won’t go into all the details, but I was taken down the mountain in an ambulance and stayed at the hospital most of the day with a bad concussion among other injuries. I praise the Lord for protecting me from further, life-threatening injury. His angels were guarding me, and I cannot praise and thank Him enough.

The days and weeks after my accident were very hard; my head hurt all the time, and my face where I was hit didn’t look very pretty. My family was so sweet and caring; helping me with everything. My Dad even took time off of his work to be with me while I recovered. My extended family and friends were so sweet to me; blessing me with cards, presents, and even personalized videos! I am so thankful for all the support and love people gave me, it made me feel so special! I praise the Lord for everything He did for me during that time and for how He healed me rather quickly. Also for everything He does in my life! For without Him, I am nothing at all.

What this experience has taught me is that our lives are in the Lord’s hands, we cannot control them. Yes, we can do many necessary things to prevent bad things from happening, but in the end it is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Who keeps us safe, looking down on us from Heaven and caring for us. I hope I’ve encouraged anyone out there reading this that has gone through, or is going through a traumatic event in their lives. Trust the Lord, He will never leave you nor forsake you. God bless you all!
