Mary Jane Elliott had been praying to Lord to show his glory to her so that she can know him more. Suddenly, one day God showed her how faithful and great he is .. through an accident. It was such a horrible situation that there was no chance for her to be alive. But when she cried out to Jesus for help he answered her and saved her wonderfully.”,”
On June 6, 2002, as I was driving to work, it was pouring rain and there was a fair amount of water already puddling on the roads. I was driving North on I-65 to Louisville when my car began to hydroplane. My car turned sideways in the middle of the road and how I didn’t hit the car next to me was the first miracle. I turned the steering wheel in the opposite direction and that was when my car spun around backwards – so at this time I was sliding backwards on I-65. Then my car slid into the median down into a ravine, where it felt like I was sliding backwards at 65mph. Grass and mud was flying up over my car and I couldn’t see out of my windows, except for the rear window.
I was thinking to myself – “”Okay, so this is how my life ends – I’m going to get to see Jesus, today””. I thought that my car was going to slide up on the other side into on-coming traffic but my car stayed in the median I looked in my rear view mirror and saw that I was quickly coming up on a guardrail in the median. It was then that I called on the name of Jesus – I simply said “”Jesus save me””. At that very instant, my car spun around forward again and stopped about 2-4 feet from the guardrail! Praise God, Hallelujah!!!
It is a miracle I am alive. I sat in the median for about 5 minutes just shaking, crying and praising God for rescuing me!
In faith, I pulled back out on to the road not knowing the extent of damage to my car! I drove home and called my husband – he came right home. We sprayed the mud and grass off of my car and found no dents, not even a scratch on my car!
We then took it to Big-O tires and had them check my tires and the underneath of my car – No damage! God had completely protected me and my car!!
You know, I have been praying for the last couple of months for God to show me His Glory. That day, He answered my prayers. I saw His Glory, His Love and His faithfulness. He said, “”Whosoever shall call upon the name of the
Lord, shall be saved.”” Praise God for that promise! Praise God that He always keeps His promises.
I love you guys and pray that He always keeps you safe in His loving arms. Always remember the power that God gives each one of us through Jesus Christ. As the song says:
When I call on Jesus, all things are possible I can mount on wings like eagles and soar.
When I call on Jesus, mountains are gonna fall Cause He’ll move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I call! and He rescued me.
Peace and God Bless,
Mary Jane Elliott
