JESUS HAS CARRIED ME THROUGH - AGAIN!
By: Rev. Tina Barry
I climbed up on Poco and sat in the saddle. He took off at a fast trot and then began to buck. The next thing I knew, I felt my backside come up off the saddle. In an instant the top of my head hit the ground. Everything went numb and silent, then black.
When I came to, I was unable to feel my arms. I began to call on the name of Jesus over and over. I gradually was able to move, and then feeling began to return. I rolled over on my back and began to pray.
After a couple of minutes, I dialed 911 on my cell phone. Alyse, my 11 year old daughter was with me when the accident happened, and she held Poco while we waited.
It took about fifteen minutes for the ambulance to arrive; a local volunteer fire-fighter also came to help.
That day prior to leaving the house, I did two things differently: I prayed for protection, and I picked up my cell phone. I believe that these two things made a considerable difference in the day's outcome.
After several CT scans at two different hospitals, it was determined that I had broken C1 and C2 . These are the first two vertebrae at the very top of your spine. My fractures were caused by a compression accident and my vertebrae should have shattered. They are the same ones that Christopher Reeve broke. His accident and mine were almost identical. We both went off the front of a horse and landed on our heads.
I spent the next eight days in the hospital, adjusting to life in a halo and managing pain.
After the hospital, I stayed in a nursing home for four more days before returning home. While at the hospital I heard the first of statistics about my injuries. One RN informed me that 99% of individuals with a C2 fracture are either dead or on a ventilator the rest of their lives. Another RN informed me that the EMTs have a saying: "Break C2...you're through." This shook me up a bit. I later learned more exact statistics: 97% dead, 2% Christopher Reeve, 1% walk away.
An MRI was done one week after the halo was removed. It was found that I had damage to my spinal cord. This damage caused severe tingling, pain, numbness and cramping in my arms and legs. With the help and advice of those God placed in my path and the healing power of God, I no longer have the majority of those symptoms.
Five months after my accident I had another MRI ordered by a different Doctor. They did a comparison of the two MRI's. I was then told that all of the spinal cord damage that was visible on the first MRI could no longer be seen! PRAISE GOD! I was also told that I had minor brain damage due to my head hitting the ground. I was stammering, unable to recall names, and had short term memory loss. I was not willing to accept this either. I began to pray and less than a month later…….no more problems! God is GOOD! He has carried me through - again!

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
