The Crash. When Suffering Seems Unbearable, Part 9
I was confronted with a knee surgery two years back when I was out with some
of my friends late in the night drinking. I was totally drunk and riding to get
more liquor when I crashed up and saw my left leg broken into pieces.
The bottom half of my leg was still there because of the skin. I was there on
the road bleeding and bruised and crying out in pain. There was not a soul to
help me out. By sheer God's grace an ambulance had just then dropped a patient
back home and was on its way back to the hospital. On the way he saw me on the
road and took me to the hospital. I also had head injuries.
Then they informed my family and they arrived at the hospital. In spite of my
wayward nature God was still there for me. The doctors immediately made
arrangements to stitch my head and an orthopaedic surgeon came and conducted a
surgery on my leg, which lasted for more than 12 hours.
After the surgery I was shifted back to my ward still in deep sleep during which
time my body temperature touched 113 degree centigrade. This was mainly because
of the foreign body - a steel rod that they had inserted in my leg.
The doctors gave up hope and they all including my family knelt down beside my
bed and prayed.
Praise God the next day my temperature was back to normal. I was on crutches for
three months. Now I am back in action. I can run around and play. I can drive
and am leading a perfectly normal life. I am 26 now got married and am having my
first child due in November.
This is indeed a miracle and how God saved me form the state I was in. Though I
was a sinner and had moved away from God. He did not leave me he stayed with me
protected me and bought me back close to him. Now I know that I am always in
very safe hands close to him.
All the friends for whom I was ready to give up my life because of pleasures
were not there with me when this happened. I realized that they were there
because of the money I had and because of the parties I used to host. They were
When I needed the most only God could help me and no man can do it. It is better
to be close to God and be happy than being happy with the world which is short
