FAITHFUL FOR A SIGN


Tracy Harp of Lynnwood, Washington is 34 years of age and has been a diabetic for 21 years. She sent me the following letter.

“On Monday, August 19, 2002 I was running late for work. I had missed my carpool, which meant I had to drive myself into work. I work at 4:00pm to midnight. I live in Lynnwood, Washington and work in downtown Seattle.


I had been very busy that day and hadn’t eaten enough. This causes my blood sugar to drop too low. For the 21 years I have had diabetes, I always had a warning sign before one of these episodes was coming on. I always get a weak and shaky feeling in my legs. When this happens, I have about 10 minutes to get some sugar in me before I get confused and disoriented. Never before has this not happened…until that day.


I remember merging on the freeway in Lynwood. I don’t remember anything else after that, when I woke up, I was in an ambulance in Tukwila. For about 30 miles I had driven in a diabetic coma and was unconscious. I didn’t have a scratch on me. My car had only a few scratches of paint missing. More importantly, I hadn’t hurt anybody else. Traffic is very busy that time of the day.


The miracle of this event is this: All my life, especially when I am feeling down, I ask the Lord for a sign, to prove He is still with me. And He probably does, but I’m always to blind to see it. But, how more obvious could He be? He drove my car for me while I was out cold. He saved many lives and their cars. He pulled the car over for me and stopped it safely away from all the traffic.


That day was a blessing for me. God is with us every second of the day, even when our thoughts are a million miles away. Do not ever doubt that He is with you. Once you have given your life and heart over to Him, He never leaves. He is faithful, loving, kind and protecting to those who honor Him.


I also think He has a sense of humor. Okay, God, I finally, get it. I’m never alone. You are always there. And you’ve never left me.

Thanks to the Lord,

Tracy Harp”
