And They Call It Courage (Sundra's Story Part Two)

God was working miracles in my life, some said I had courage to make it this far, but I saw it not merely as courage but as God's grace. God's grace had taken me from death and given me life.

I have to admit when I first woke up in the hospital I was disconnected.  I had came back from death.  I knew that God had kept me here for a reason even then. 

I had to come to terms with the fact that I could no longer walk, that I had a spinal cord injury, but I was alive, and that in itself was a miracle.

Even the doctors could not figure out how I had survived, the impact, the time my body ceased to function. In every aspect I was dead, but I was alive now, very much alive.

God was working miracles in my life, some said I had courage to make it this far, but I saw it not merely as courage but as God's grace.  God's grace had taken me from death and given me life.

My life would be different now, not only because I was going to be living it sitting down, but more because I was going to have a greater appreciation of life.

I had a long way to go, before I would get stronger, anywhere near I had been before the accident, and I would never walk again, short of a miracle, and I was a believer in miracles, how could I not be I rose from the dead?

I had lived though, God had a purpose for me to make it, and I was not going to let myself spend my life feeling sorry for myself, because I had seen God's hand at work, and I was blessed because of it.

Dear Sundra,

You are an inspiration to so many.

Our Lord Jesus will use you as a mighty warrior of truth.

God bless you as you give your living testimony to the world.

Yours in the love of Christ,

John Michael
