Christmas in the Park
A Near-Death Ice Skate Story
My story takes place in December 2007,
at Christmas in the park, but first a little background. Technically I
have been a believer in Jesus since I was very young. I grew up in a Christian
home, and did not think much of it, until 8th grade. I went ice skating
at christmas in the park with my Jr. high group, and it was all great until
like an hour later, I was ice skating and these stupid guys were messing
around and accidentally ran into me causing a domino effect of people falling
over, and through the chaos of things, I had somehow gotten stabbed in
the back of my right leg by an ice skate. As I got up some guy was like,
dude your bleeding. I was like oh my god, and freaking out. So I got off
the ice, and I just kept bleeding. They thought I had hit an artery or
something, and there was blood everywhere. My pastor at the time was with
us, and he was right by my side as I was laying on the ground. He was actually
the one holding his hand over my leg as to keep the blood from coming out
too fast. As I was lying there, I kept thinking to myself, I'm gonna die,
this is it, I can't believe it's all over, I'm so young, there is so much
more to discover in life, and as all these thoughts race through my head,
my pastor was the ultimate comforter, he said, "you are going to be fine,
just try to relax" so I did. It was really hard, but I did my best; and
before I knew it, some random stranger (not my pastor and not anyone who
knew me) but a RANDOM stranger had called 911, and the paramedics came
and took me to emergency. To this day, I have no idea who called emergency,
but I'm glad he called when he did, the paramedics got there just in time
to rush me to the ER.
To make a long story short, I got like 8 stitches
and the ice skate, barely missed a vital artery. I had been hit in the
ONE spot that wasn't crucial (according to the doctor as I remember). So
the way I see it, that night, I would have died from blood loss, but I
didn't because I had an angel looking out for me, an angel named Jesus.
And that was the year I took a good long look at my life, and decided to
live for God as much as I could with my kindness, people skills, and just
overall my loving spirit which God has gifted me with.
It's now almost 4 years later, and I realize
that other people need to hear this miracle, I cant just keep it to myself.
For all those out there who are losing any sort of faith, don't. God works
in mysterious ways, seriously. I hope my story was an inspiration to all
of you and that you all will continue to live your lives for God. Give
it all up to him and see what he does with it. You may be surprised at
how awesome God is :)
And lastly, if anyone, ever needs prayer for
ANYTHING, seriously, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
And I will pray for your need. I may only be
17, but the power of prayer is beyond our comprehension, and works wonders.
I hope my story will touch many lives, maybe even yours. God bless.
