My prayer today is that the testimony I am about to share will bless others. This story has made a big impact in my life. As this is part of my story now I want to share the goodness of God. On Thursday January 8, 2015, I was babysitting for a family. After dropping the three year old Nehemiah off at school I stopped at the parking lot at the school to draw a heart on Georgia’s hand to remind her that her Mommy and Daddy love her. I was heading to the library to go read and look at some books with baby Georgia. After stopping at a stop sign, I approached the intersection, and a man ran the stop sign and crashed into my car. As you can see on picture, the left side of the driver and passenger door glass were completely broken. I can see the pieces of glass blowing in the air and hitting my face. At the time of the impact Georgia had her blanket over her head because she likes to put it over her head and take it off. This was so amazing because of a simple blanket she did not see the accident happen. There were not pieces of glass on her face or even cuts on her body. God is so good. We did not even get hurt besides minor stuff. There were angels around our car watching over us. I am sharing this because I want you to know how good our God is.
After the accident I was talking to the mother of the kids, one of the questions I asked her was; Why do these things happen? Why don’t people pay attention on the road? Her answer was: “I think the only reason why these things happen sometimes is because God wants to show his power and his protection to us.” Even sometimes, when we do not think about everyday detail, when we get in our cars, when we go to work anything can happen and God is in control of all off it. I even told her: “What if I had not stopped at the school parking lot to put a heart on Georgia’s hand? This is reminder that God is in control. He knew that this would happen. We do not know what is going to happen to us, we just need to trust God every day. We went to the hospital and even the doctors were amazed that we were alive. My car is totaled but praise God we are OK. God is in control and I am trusting Him to provide another one.
My challenge for today is to be encouraged and trust God because He is the only one that is in control of our lives. This Bible verse always reminds me of God’s goodness and His plan for our life: “For I know what I have planned for you, Yuri. I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with HOPE.” Jeremiah 29:11 When God has a plan for your life, nothing can be against Him. You just need to believe that God has a plan for you. You just need to believe and trust him. If you allow Him, He will show you the way. I am so thankful to Him for giving me a second chance to live. I praise God for this miracle. I am so thankful for all of my family and friends, for their prayers, love, support, and their encouragement.
