The doctors at first held out little hope that I would ever walk again.
Alyianna your spinal cord was injured you can't keep living in denial that you are going to walk. You don't want to believe the injuries permanent you are in total denial. I can't encourage you to keep on with this nonsense.
I have never been one to give up easily though and I refused to give up. I believed the Lord meant for me to stand up and walk again, and I was not going to settle for anything less. I had seen miracles happen before, so I was not going to settle for anything less.
If God said that I would never walk again, that was one thing if he wanted me to spend my life in a chair for some unforseen reason then I would accept that, but a degree on a wall didn't make this man God. I trusted in something much larger than that.
I was a preachers daughter, and I knew about faith. I knew it only took enough faith to say move mountain and then it would move. Perhaps my faith wasn't always so strong, I was the proverbial preachers daughter who strayed away from her roots, but now I was faced with a harsher reality and I needed that faith. I needed God.
It took this accident for me to realize that, perhaps in that way the accident was a good thing, because if I continued down the path I had started in I certainly would be dead in no time. Drugs, booze, that just wasn't my style.
But I hadn't had a drink or a fix in weeks when that car came crashing into me, the person driving was blind drunk though.
I guess it was a sort of irony because I had gotten behind the wheel once or twice under the influence, thank God I hadn't hurt anyone, but here I was the victim of a drunk driver though I really wasn't a victim. I could never see myself as that. I was not some kind of martyr for a cause I was going to make it and I was going to prove the doctors wrong.
I was going to walk...
