1st and Prayerfully Last Accident !!!!

"I will love you , O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;My God my strength in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised so shall I be saved from my enemies." Psalm 18:1-3

Hello my friends...........as most of you know I was in a very bad car accident on Friday the 19th day of June at about 1:45 ish in the afternoon. I was on the 215 headed towards The Lakes well to be exact it was going to my old neighborhood to drop my son off for his regular get together time with some friends it is a part of the freeway I have traveled 1000 times before I was in the middle lane of the freeway in between the Stephanie Exit and the Gibson Exit and I was needing to get into the fast lane and as I look over my shoulder to see if I was able to make a lane change I see blue coming into my current lane and try to move over so he doesnt hit me only when swerved it was very jerky because I didnt want to hit car on the otherside of me so I ended up not being able to gain control and spun out into two complete circles hitting the middle wall which seperates the sides of freeway once and then again spinning my car back into freeway across all three lanes and by the very GRACE of GOD parked on side of highway not even in the rocks that was amazing uh??????

As the car was spinning out of control and cars are flying past us and stopping to not hit us all
I could see was the life of my precious three children(Matthew 10, D.J. 7, and Bella 4) flash before my eyes and then my own and I remember everything happening so slow and saying Lord I cant do this please Jesus take the Wheel from my hands and protect me from these passing cars please save us. I was also thinking am I ready to be before Jesus and was overwhelmingly convicted and was brought to my Knees in prayer the whole night after.
The Lord was truly the ONLY thing that saved us that Friday afternoon I truly 100% believe that to be the case. Every witness was in amazment they wondered HOW ???? How no one hit me and I hit no one and how we were alive and how did I see over airbags in a smoke filled car to
get it to safety and Matthew and I kept saying Jesus our Lord thats how. It was so amazing and Matthew was so concerned and didnt care about his injuries at the time he wanted in the car to check for his bible. It was so sureal in many ways my son asked me later mom did you feel like you were out of body and it wasnt real I said yes son that is sorta how I felt. I am so very thankful for my life and have not been putting anything for granted the last few days life is to short and we truly dont know how many days we have left. The Lord spoke to me in that car and it was profound and one message that spoke the loudest was Cindy you want me to take the wheel of this car but HOW ABOUT THE WHEEL TO YOUR LIFE?????? WOW Lord HE WAS right and the words rang loud and clear I need the wheel to your life EVERY PART OF IT not
just the ones you are cozy with ALL parts 100% so I have searched deep in my soul and am rededicating myself solely to the Lord of Lord's and King of King's being ready in any event to go home and be with my Lord. As for the accident the car is God's we do for sure NEED another right away yet we are trusting in God for that I do ask your prayers in that though if you will.
The children are fine bruised and sore but will recover, I am very sore and still suffering minor headaches so prayer for continued healing is great. I also am still a little nervous and shaky while driving so but other than that PRAISE GOD FOR GIVING US MORE TIME and His mercies are new every morning and this is His Day we shall be glad and rejoice in it. As for the blue car whom caused the accident he got away never stopped to admit he was what caused the accident
my family prayed for him for he knows not his ways the Lord knows and that is the important thing. There were great angels the Lord sent to stop and wait with us as well as witness the whole thing so that again was God. We really do my friends serve an amazing AWESOME God.

I ask you now my friends are you allowing the Lord to take the wheel of your life or are you still hanging on to that last piece of sin or pride or hurt whatever it is be real before your King admit
humbly that you cannot do any of it on your own and allow Jesus to take your wheel and lead you to safety. Without my Lord that day may have ended very tragicly and we know that and are blessed. I was reminded that as mundane as it is to pray everytime you get into the car you really NEED TO it is so important also saying good by to family members I recall not saying a proper goodbye to my husband and being so convicted we may have NEVER seen each other on this side of heaven again yikes. Life my friends is but a vapor and we really dont have time to get right the time is now to be right("but the hour is coming, and now is,when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and TRUTH ;for the Father is seeking such to worship Him." John 4:23) get on your knees today and seek wholeheartedly after our King
as will I and am blessed that I am able. God Bless you all and may God continue to keep each of our families safe.
Father you are truly amazing I am honored to be your daughter, I ask you to forgive me for the way I have been living my life half way in so many areas and Lord I do give you the wheel to my life every last part of it I ask you do what you will with my life and thank you so much for saving the 4 of our lives. Lord I thank you for steering us to safety that hot Friday afternoon I praise you that when I called out you answered I praise you for the things you are working on in and through me and my children you are awesome. Father may we all seek you before any other thing in this awful sinful world. In Jesus HOLY name amen

until Next time,
your humble sister,
cindy
