God had saved me from death

by Kyung-ho Lee from Vancouver, Canada

This happened in June of 2004, I had just gotten off from a full day of work and a friend of mine invited me to a house party. Even though I knew that I had to work the next day I still decided to go and just have a drink or two and then leave. However my decision turned out to be a bad one. When I had arrived at the party, everyone there was already drunk and some of them needed to go home right away but since no one was able to drive I decided that I would be the designated driver and would drive anyone who needed a ride home.

After about an hour and half of driving I was finally on my own way home. Everything was going fine until I got to an off ramp from the highway. As I was nearing the turn-off I started to doze off. Right then I should have taken that as a sight to pull over and get a little rest before I continued driving, but I ignored it and

continued driving. As I was in the turn, I fell asleep and my car swerved off the road. At that point I suddenly woke up and found myself driving in the ditch.

After sitting in my car for about 10-15 minutes trying to recover from the shock, I finally managed to get the car out of the ditch. When I got home sat on the couch and stayed there for about another hour just staring into space. At that point I remembered that if not for God I would not be here right now, so I did a little prayer of thanks and then went to sleep.

The next morning my dad and I went to the place where I had crashed the car in to the ditch, and it wasn’t until then did I truly realize how fortunate I was that night. It turns out; when I had entered the ditch I had just narrowly missed a lamp post. It was then when it started to hit me that God had saved me from major injury or even death, and from that point I started to appreciate everything I had take for granted. This experience helped me realize that God is constantly giving me forgiveness and redemption every day.
