I seemed straight out the truck and there was a man…
Hunter and his girlfriend Arika were in a horrific vehicle clang that by all realistic guidelines should have killed them instantly.
But as they sit next to the decimated dollop of metal that was once Hunter’s truck, they’ve got a much different narration to tell.
Instead they are smiling and now sharing the miracle narration that left them virtually untouched when their bodies “should have been chopped in half, ” writes Arika.
She shared their amazing fib in a Facebook polealong with this precious picture of Hunter leaning over her in research hospitals, and it had now been won over the the hearts of millions across the web.
As they zoomed straight into an unforgiving poleat an stupefying 85 mph, read Arika’s striking summary of the story that can truly simply be explained by the mighties protective mitt of God and his guardian angel :
“ Three seconds. That’s how long we had from the moment we floated off the road until the truck affected the pilar at 85 mph. In three seconds Hunter had to handle a situation that would either kill us immediately or save our lives. He impedes beating himself up for my suffering but he saved my life. He impedes saying’ I should have shielded you and I didn’t do that’ but he did exactly what he needed to do to make sure “peoples lives” didn’t intention. The whole baseball player component facilitated him out…if he can smack a 95 mph fastball he can do anything. He took care of me. And when we were both lying in our bunks in the ER he found a path to come safeguard my heart and give me a hug. Lord knows I required that just as much as my safety.
I have problems with my heartbeat. When I get anxious or worried it flutters pretty bad…pulling me into panic attack. The time we made and I recognized I was conscious I realized that is what was happening to me. While out of sigh and trying to move my legs i was screaming..panicked…yelling for Hunter to just say something. I needed to know he was okay. Examining to the motorists seat all I accompanied was his head through the windshield, a appearance full of blood, and a person that wasn’t moving. I searched straight out the truck and there was a man..bright with a big lily-white whisker. No other cars in sight…just this person. He was my fairy godmother. He saw me and immediately told him that an ambulance was coming. I jump-start out of the car, ran over to Hunters side and merely looked at this serviceman.
From that instant until Hunter was cut& lifted out of the truck I guess with my whole mettle that looking at this humankind helped me to literally believe in that moment that Hunter was next to me on the road. I dont know if it was a hallucination or me unconsciously daydream or a view of heaven…but all I knew in that instant was that Hunter was safe with me. This man..looking at him for a short moment..helped me not witness Hunter being peeled out of the truck. I speculate if I investigated that I would have had a heart attack. Right when Hunter was actually out and next to me, I expected this gentleman when the ambulance was coming. He told me in a few seconds. He keep walking, I blinked and a flashlight was in my look. The paramedics were there helping me and Hunter and the anxiety and worry if he was okay vanished because we were in good hands . Here is the miracle character: no busted bones, concussions that lasted not even 24 hours , no internal shattering, and only a few stitches in my knee and hunters face. Exclusively that after road traffic accidents that paramedics wonder how we didn’t die instantaneously and a truck that looks like it’s “ve been through” a tree grinder. We’re both already liberated from research hospitals not even 48 hours after recruiting. All of our belongings in perfect condition besides a few happenings here and there .. and the only thing left behind at the gate-crash incident is Hunters bible open, with a page differentiated with scripture telling us to not be afraid; Jesus is with us . I am stunned. Utterly taken away by the presence of God. So anointed for him mailing me an angel. So appreciative for Hunter and his second likelihood at life…for his mending and health. We are so fortuitous for kinfolks who traveled thousands of hundreds of miles to be with us. And so appreciative for all the thoughts and prayers “thats been” mailed our acces. The power of devotion is very, and it healed me and Hunter. We are in a lot of suffering because of the traumata, so any more devotions are recognized while we recuperate .
But tonight I’m praying for all of you. If there’s anything you read out of this novel I’m typing up here it’s this: I miss everybody is to know the desire and the power of God. He has a purpose…and it’s less clear that NOTHING…not even a car accident like this one will make his plans for you to change. We are put one over this beautiful globe for a ground and the reason is to help people know Him. We are made to show and share His love. And if it takes a vehicle shipwreck like this for me to get at do that then I would do it all over again.
I’m praying that everyone who reads this can get a glimpse of Gods faithfulness. He is GOOD. And working. And the plans he has for YOU and your life aren’t going anywhere. Good or bad, what the hell are you miss or what you don’t want…it’s God’s doing. It’s his schemes uncovering. It’s his dominion coming. Embrace the struggles and the euphorium of this life! Without a indecision it’s a miracle we’re alive, but more than that it’s simply Gods plan for us. We’re so grateful for this ruin and all it will do in our lives. We are sanctified to be okay. And so in love with the amazing God we serve . ”
Wow. It’s stories like these that is actually thrust us to take a step back and tumble before the feet of the mighty and caring God that we serve.
It’s one thing to read a scripture like Jeremiah 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you, ” affirms the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future … But it’s quite another to see it in full-blown, living, breath color.
Arika and Hunter knew that the plans God has for them are GOOD, and not even a truck plowing at impossible speeds into a spar could stop what He had in store. As Arika wrote, “He has a purpose…and it’s so clear that NOTHING…not even a car accident like this one will make his a blueprint for you to change.”
Moreover, it’s beautiful to accompany such tragedy turned around for His greatnes as this young duet chooses to use their fib to draw others closer to Him.
May God use Hunter and Arika mightily to furthers his domain, and may they be extravagantly blessed as they live out the rest of the story He lays before them. I’m agitated to attend what the future holds for this strength couple. God wasn’t done with them yet…and you better believe it’s because He’s get wonderful things in store!
