Ryan’s Miracle Watch 7/31/18

After reading yesterday’s RMW post, Gary Vian reminded me of a time God spared my earthly life when I was in a motorcycle incident just outside the Caldecott tunnel. I was driving in the slow lane just before the Broadway exit, when a car in the next lane over cut me off at the last second to make the exit and clipped the front of my motorcycle. I held onto my bike as it slid about 100 feet or so, and when I couldn’t hold on any longer I let go and slid for another 10-20 feet. Fortunately, my crash bars and my helmet held me off the ground as I slid, and I came away from the accident with only a broken collar-bone (from the initial fall) and a small scratch on the side of my hand; which my daily reminder (along with other scars & things) of God’s protection. My crash bars were ground down to 1/4″, and I could stick my finger through my helmet on the side that had been sliding along the ground.

God protected me even more, however, the day before the incident. He actually prevented an incident from happening. You see, the day before I wasn’t wearing my helmet. It was the first time I had ever ridden without one. I don’t know how, but I completely forgot to put it on when I left the house, and it was just before the Broadway exit that I realized I had forgotten it. I was petrified the rest of the way to work, as well as on my way home. I swore an oath (I know you’re not supposed to swear) I would never forget to wear my helmet again. I’d say it was a good oath to swear…

Ryan’s been doing really well these past couple of weeks, and I really enjoy being alive to witness what God is doing in and around his circumstance. People tell me stories all the time about God’s grace, protection, mercy and love. Please keep the stories coming. They energize us all; showing God is still at work…

John 5:17   In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”
