Answered Prayers?

Me, one week before the wreck

I was in a car wreck on Monday.  The Smart car had to be towed from the scene.  I thought I was fine.  I realize now it was just my adrenaline and the shock of the accident that kept me from feeling any pain.

Me, post-accident

I awoke Tuesday feeling about ninety years old, stiff and hurting.  The scariest part of it all is the burning pain in my right arm and the numbness in my finger tips.  It’s hard being forced to sit still.

I wonder if God is answering my prayers in a round-a-bout way.  I often pray for patience and for balance between work and home life.  For the last few days work has been done by my other coaches while I rest and heal.  It’s not easy sitting still.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, ‘”‘For I know the plans I have for you, ‘ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”  I truly believe everything happens for a reason and that God has a funny way of answering our prayers sometimes.  I’m definitely being forced to learn patience (can you tell I hate sitting still?) and by not  training or coaching, I’m finding time to accomplish things in other areas of my life.

And once again….I’ve managed to make lemonade 🙂
