A Miracle

I just want to briefly share a miracle story, though I won't go into too much detail out of respect for the individual the story is about. I just feel very strongly that this story demonstrates God's power in our lives and shows that even if we have plans for ourselves, God's plan will always come through.

I know of a young man who tried to end his life recently by shooting himself in the head with an AK-47. Sounds like a plan with little chance of error, right? Well, he is alive. Two factors foiled his seemingly fool-proof plan. First, even though he was able to get his family out of the house, his dad returned and was there to call for help immediately. Second, he was unable to reach the trigger of the gun without the barrel slipping sideways. He miraculously didn't hit a single bone in his head, but only damaged his cheek and teeth.

So there you go. If you can shoot yourself in the head with an AK-47 and only hit your cheek, God wants you here. Please pray for this guy and his family as he still has a long road ahead. While you're at it, go ahead and thank God for whatever obviously important things He has in store for his future.
