here is his post I thought Id share it with you cause I think its amazing
I meant to post this a couple weeks ago, but didn’t get the chance. I got hit June 23…
Long and the short of it is this;
I was travelling east to see my Girlfriend in Manitoba at her parents house, she was returning from Africa (after being there for 9 months) and landing that night.
She didn’t know I was coming, it was a surprise…
Anyway, just outside of Moose Jaw, I got caught in the corner of a storm, and as I was powering through it, Right when It seemed the sky was clearing up, I was passing a semi-truck in the left lane, after I passed him, 3 lightning strikes hit the road directly in front of me, and the 4th caught me right in the back of the neck.
Everything we silent, and I went black.
I thought “This is it, God, into your hands I come”
I heard a “Whump” of a body hitting the ground, but didn’t feel a thing…
then, raindrops…and brightness…I opened my eyes and found myself staring at the sky.
thoughts hit me all once.
I asked God, why didn’t you take me? I don’t want to deal with this pain…
I was going through waves of concousnous…it hurt allot.
I was folded up in half in that hole in the ground…butt first, my head and feet poking out…
the trucker was there talking on his cell phone.
I was later told that the trucker thought I had been dismembered, and when he got closer and saw I was intact, it was convinced I was dead.
When he saw me move and heard me mumble,
He told me EMS was on their way…
“Oh good, Morphine is on it’s way!!!” is what I said to that…
In the hospital, The RCMP wondered how I could go off the road on a straight stretch of divided highway. the Dr. figured the bike had landed on me with my burns, but as I slowly came back, my memory came back too…(It still is in some ways, I don’t remember some stuff still)
Anyway, after backboards and neckbraces, X-rays etc. they determined my body wasn’t broken (which was amazing) then they inspected my burns and determined that yes indeed I had been hit by lightning, some of my levels were way off from electrical damage, etc.
By that night, i was walking around the hospital, and outside the muscle aches, and burns felt pretty good.
The only damage I suffered was a slightly skinned knee, 1st degree burns, and a sore shoulder and back for a couple days.
The Dr. says my levels (Forget what they are called) in my blood are returning to normal, and that I cannot get a high voltage electrical shock again for at least 3 weeks, to risk permanent damage to my cardiac muscles…
Not too shabby for being struck by lightning, then verring off the road at highways speeds and bouncing through the ditch.
I am thankfull to God for getting off so easy!!!
I’m not feeling 100% physically, but I think that’s from the McDonalds I had (jk)
When I saw those 3 initial strikes land right in front of me, I was ready to accept whatever outcome that would happen. I was thinking it would end in death…
Job 1: 20 “…The Lord Gave, and the Lord has taken away…”
Ecc 9:12 “Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come…”
but, my hope lay simply in this;
John 5: 24 “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned: he has crossed over from death to life”
