I am so grateful for the life I have, I guess I have learned to appreciate what I have more. A few years ago I nearly lost my life in an accident that has left me paralyzed from the waist down, but I am alive and I am grateful for that. I have learned the power of forgivness, forgiveness of myself and others, but more importanly I know of the kind of forgiveness Christ has blessed us with, if only we give our hearts to him.
I can not begin to imagine what my life would be like if I had not given my heart to Jesus.
I would have probably been bitter about the accident that's for sure.
I mean I guess it took the accident to wake me up, to see past my own nose.
When your young you don't think bad things will happen to you. When they do, well that's a hard reality to face. A reality that we will all face at one time or another though. Some will face it harder than others.
Not everyone has a car accident that leaves them paraylzed to wake them up. But that was the case with me. If it hadn't been for the accident I would not have waken up. I would have just kept making the same mistakes over and over again.
Perhaps the accident was a blessing in disguise, because it slowed me down. It stopped me from going on the path of destruction. A path I would have likely continued on if I had not had the wake up call. I needed the wake up call.
