//Guest Post// Stacey Meier//

Ever have feelings of just being in awe of God? He is so awesome. I love hearing stories of his work in this world. It’s everywhere. Tessa shared a story with me today of one of the shooting victims in Aurora, Co. She was shot in the arm and in the head. The bullet made its way through her face, up  through her brain and stopped at the back of her skull. How tragic. On the surface, her odds of living are slim. Even if she pulled through surgery, the chances of having some kind of brain damage were certain. After the initial surgery was complete, the surgeon revealed a “lucky” find. It seems that this woman has had a small brain defect from birth. Not being a neurologist, I can only explain it as a liquid-like stream flowing through her brain. This woman has been unaffected by this “defect” and would never know it was there. When the bullet entered her skull, this “liquid-like stream” guided the bullet through her brain, leaving the brain UN-AFFECTED. NO DAMAGE. Lucky? Yeah, I guess. More like God’s miracle working through this woman’s life. WOW. It is so incredible to think about her brain forming while in the womb of her mother and this “defect” would one day save her life. Psalm 139:13, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” God knew exactly what he was doing when he formed her. Every part of her. Incredible. What an amazing testimony this woman will have to share with the world and to honor the Kingdom of God.

Read the entire story of Petra HERE.


  1. Yup, all the time. Seeing His works in the world and how it all knits together is what keeps me going in my faith. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28, one of my favorites.

  2. I just read this story yesterday and felt the exact same way... in awe of God's amazing design and plan.
