Israel is still pressing on. Every day is a new experience, one with a mixture of pain, sleep , medications, talking and reminiscing about the past and looking with new expectation into the future. His spirit continues to be looking up to the Lord and though there are hard moments he continues to press on in faith. There have been a lot of ups and downs this week, dealing with the medications and the side effects that come along with the medications he has had to take. Thanks to his doctor with whom he has been able to communicate with on the phone he has been able to stay out of the emergency room.
From Israel’s own mouth: ” I can say, that through all of this God is completely changing my life.
God has showed me what it means to trust in him, and sit back with an open hand to let the Lord lead me. I just sit and wait for the thing that I know God has planned for me. I don’t know what that is yet, but I do know that he saved my life for a very specific purpose. As I sit and look at the trailer and truck that are completely totaled I just can’t believe that God actually saved my life. Looking at the back of that trailer it truly is a complete miracle that I am alive and that by body wasn’t completely crushed and killed instantly. God had to lifted me physically out of the middle of that wreck and as he did my feet were taken off. I know now that God can do miracles and he loves me Very Much!!! and with tears I say this.”
