When I was 13, I was riding a bicycle the size of a 10-speed when I accidentally kicked the front tire with my foot. Doing that caused the bike to flip and I landed directly on my head.

After I landed, I managed to get up, but the pain was so severe, I was jumping around, holding my head with both hands.

Five minutes later, the pain subsided sufficiently for me to get back onto the bike and started riding back home.

I arrived home within 10-15 minutes and told my mom. She worried. This had come not even a year after my last major accident. She called a friend who, when he heard, left work, came to the house within 20 minutes and took me to the hospital. The doctors at the Emergency Room did an x-ray of my head but it showed that there was not even a bruise on my head!

Given the severity of my fall and my prior injuries, there was no doubt that Jesus had been watching over me and protecting me that day.
