Full recovery from serious car accident

Several years ago, the company I work for rewarded the staff with a kayaking weekend in the country. Several of us drove together on bad roads in the rain through the bundu [boondocks] to get to the camp. Suddenly, our driver unexpectedly swerved to avoid some cows on the road, and we veered into a ditch, rolled several times, and were flung out of the car.

When I regained consciousness, my first thought was that God, who lovingly protects His children from harm in all circumstances, was present—even though I had no idea where I was, and my whole body was excruciatingly painful. This instinctive response was something I had learned as a child in Sunday School, and I felt a wonderful sense of warmth and safety with His arms wrapped around me. I couldn't move my body or open my eyes, but I felt lucid and calm, and was grateful to have come to so quickly—because I knew I needed to pray.
