86-yr-old Ethel Neal of Melbourne, Victoria, should have died, or at least should have been severely injured, when a driver slammed through a wall of her home. The great-grandmother was sound asleep in her bed when a driver in a blue Ford Falcon, who allegedly fell asleep at the wheel, came crashing through her bedroom, hitting her bed and pushing the bed into a wall across the room with Ms. Neal in it.
The man driving the car managed to exit the vehicle and continually apologized until first responders arrived and took him to the hospital. A spokesperson for the ambulance service said it was a miraculous turn of events for Ms. Neal who after being examined showed no signs of any injuries anywhere–not even so much as a scratch despite the fact glass and debris flew everywhere in addition to her bed being smashed into. She was just a little shocked at what happened.
Although her neighbors and others are calling her ‘lucky’ for coming through the accident without injury, luck really had nothing to do with it. It was nothing short of a miracle carried out by the Lord, who exercised his almighty power to keep the laws of physics at bay. I don’t know what Ms. Neal’s belief system is, but someone must have been praying a hedge of protection around her and this miracle, as all other truly godly miracles, was a clear message from God for her and those around her. Ultimately, he should be praised for this wonderful work.
The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. … The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. Ps. 121:5, 8
