Dear Praying Friend,
As I approach the Holidays, I find myself being more wistful and philosophic than ever. I’ve been reflecting on what God has been teaching me through the whole Fulton experience. It’s hard to believe but it’s been 8 years now since the accident (Dec. 11, 2010).
Much of what I’ve experienced has become a blur, yet there are always big thoughts God brings to mind. Usually these big thoughts are very simple but profound. For example, I’ve learned no matter what happens, somehow I will survive. I remembered a few years ago before the accident, I met a woman whose son was killed in a car accident 3 weeks earlier. As we talked about her tragedy, she said to me, “Just remember, I have survived and so would you.”
Everybody grieves in their own way but God says if we allow Him in our lives, we will not only survive, but we will thrive. I’m sure the woman has forgotten her bit of advice to me, but I haven’t. And so I say to you, at this time of reflection, whatever happens, with God’s strength, you will survive.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
