Miracle after Horse Riding Accident

God doesn’t guarantee us tomorrow and we don’t know what the future will hold. What we do know is; when we call on the name of Jesus mountains will move and nothing is impossible, if we only believe!

On April 24, 2006, I was bucked off the front of my horse. I went off over his head and did a flip landing directly on the top of my head. Everything went numb and silent.

I could see the ground moving but could not feel or hear. Then everything went black. When I came too, I could not feel or move. At that moment I felt a helplessness that can’t be explained.

I almost panicked, but instead I began to call on the name of Jesus. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Then I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Move your arms.”

I tried to move them, and they moved just a little. I continued to call the name of Jesus and the more I said His name the more I was able to feel and move. I eventually was able to call 911.

After a series of CT scans, I was told I had broken C1 and C2. These were the same vertebrae that Christopher Reeve broke when he was thrown from his horse. I later learned that 97% of people with these injuries die, 2% are on a ventilator the rest of their lives and 1% walk away!

Three months after my accident an MRI was done. It was discovered that I had 3 pinches, 2 damaged disks and a bruise on my spinal cord. I was having painful symptoms and was told that the bruised cells on my spinal cord would die off and I would not improve. I may in fact become worse. God is good, I did improve and 3 months later another MRI showed that all the spinal cord damage could no longer be seen.

I was also diagnosed with brain damage. I began to speak over my mind and in three weeks’ time the symptoms were gone and have not returned!

I could feel the presence of God almost continually throughout my healing. He has shown Himself faithful. When we put our trust in Him, He will come through on our behalf.
