"There are no accidents in God's kingdom"

"There are no accidents in God's kingdom." This thought came to me as I was lying in a hospital emergency room, undergoing X-rays after I was hit by a car while crossing a street at an intersection. Right on the heels of that thought came this one: "If there are no accidents in God's kingdom, neither can there be any effects from an accident."

The prime witness, an off-duty employee of a local ambulance company, had described the impact as throwing me so that I landed on the pavement on my head. He immediately called 911 on his cellular phone, moved his car to block traffic so as to protect me, and rushed to my side. He cautioned me to lie still, explaining that I had a large head wound that was bleeding generously, and that I must certainly have also received other injuries.
