When I broke my neck 50 years ago, the future looked so scary. Would God’s grace be strong enough to help me?

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. When I broke my neck 50 years ago, the future looked so scary. Would God’s grace be strong enough to help me? I realized that I could either make God look good by trusting Him as I wheeled into a life of total paralysis, or I could make God look bad with resentful feelings. I could stain His reputation by telling others that He was being unfair. My decision to either trust God or not trust Him was based on my assessment of God’s character and whether or not I believed His Word was reliable. Now it may have taken a long time for me to get there, but finally, finally I trusted Him. And now? There is nothing more satisfying than talking up His goodness and showcasing His character. Nothing makes me happier. So today, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Do so and it will make God look really good!
