Her journey: I believe that God can, so He does. When I was 22, a truck going 40 mph hit my car. The fireman came running up to the car saying, “She has to be dead.” Before the vehicle hit me, I saw it coming and said, “God, I don’t want to die tonight.” I got out of that accident without a bruise and I was able to go home. I went to the hospital the next day. Had that truck not hit me, I would not have discovered that my reproductive system was in such bad shape that if I didn’t have surgery immediately I could never carry a child. I’ve seen God turn what the enemy plans for evil into something better than I imagined. If He did it for me, then He can do it for you. If He did it centuries ago, He can do it today.
