Petra was shot four times and one of the bullets went through her nose into her brain lodging in her skull. Miraculously she is now able to walk and talk.
The doctor explains that Petra’s brain has had from birth a small “defect” in it. It is a tiny channel of fluid running through her skull…Only a CAT scan would catch it, and Petra would have never noticed it.
But in Petra’s case, the shotgun buck shot…enters her brain from the exact point of this defect. Like a marble through a small tube, the defect channels the bullet from Petra’s nose through her brain. It turns slightly several times, and comes to rest at the rear of her brain. And in the process, the bullet misses all the vital areas of the brain.
Her mother, who is herself battling what the doctors are calling terminal breast cancer said, “I believe that she was not only protected by God, but that she was actually prepared for it.”
As America continues to pray for God to bring hope and help out of tragedy, I believe many more stories will be told of what God is doing in spite of the attack in Colorado. God is on His throne and nothing that happens takes Him by surprise. He is watching over His people and:
Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy, that it cannot hear. Isaiah 59:1
We must continue to pray that God will awaken us from our slumber and show us areas of disobedience. Even at this late hour, He can forgive us and save our nation.
