Yesterday, I met a young man who was in a car wreck. He was so shaken by it that you could visibly see his panic. The wreck was not his fault. What he understood though, at 60mph belting into a car that pulled out in front of him, is that fatality was a possibility. He was traumatized. He said, “I am afraid to get into a car again.” Trauma affects us all.
I sympathized with him. I, too, had been in a similar situation before and was not sure if the person would live or die. I, stopped dead in my tracks to pray for him, asking the father to be his calm and to give him a peace that would surpass his own understanding. My father once told me that even if it hurts, get back up and try it again. I shared with him the way to defeat that trauma head-on is to get right back in the saddle and drive. The experience will give you a new set of eyes to defend yourself against another wreck like this.
As I sit here this morning, reflecting on that conversation, I realized that I have to take my own advice. I embrace the trauma today, to be a voice against the trauma that I experienced. I have been asking God to order my steps. The moral of the story is that God speaks in many ways. The epiphany for this young man… “if I never believed in GOD before, I do now.” The enemy missed him and the other driver.
