On July 30, 2020, Sarah Frei and her friends were driving home from a summer trip when they were hit by a drunk driver. Sarah was instantly paralyzed from the waist down and later lost both of her legs above the knee.

Sometimes dreams are stolen / It only takes a moment
And what was whole is broken / so fast
The life I took for granted / and the plans I made were shattered
Like just a million pieces of / the past.

As one of the few double-amputee paraplegics in the world, Sarah has faced an incredibly difficult uphill battle with courage and cheer.

But through it all, she has relied on her faith in Christ and her knowledge that through His grace, we can be made strong.

But in the wreckage, I knew there were angels
Through the struggle, there was strength to carry on
Though you didn’t move the mountains, Lord, or part these waves of pain
I can see You’ve been here all along.

Sarah Frei’s story has captured the hearts of thousands of people across the world and she is living proof of God’s amazing grace in our lives.

There is a miracle / In every breath I take
And I am living proof / Of Your amazing grace
The darkest nights I know / Will always end with dawn
And You’ll be here to make me strong

Very often in the wreckage we experience in life, we can always find hope and it is through Jesus Christ that we can be made strong.

Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.

I identify with this story and song, I’ve been in a wheel
chair since November 2015 due to some serious medical
mistakes, so glad this young lady had better care and
good medical professionals to help here through the aftermath of this incident in her life, but she is still full of faith and hope and abounding courage, as am I. Awesome song, and her story as well will encourage us all.

God bless you Sister. Your strength is proof that Christ lives and loves us. You set a
perfect example of Faith and Hope for all of us

I identify with this beautiful song. In 2013 I emerged from a total spinal fusion gone wrong. Ever since, I have been bedridden and in excruciating pain. ” He did not part the waves of pain,”. but He gave me a reason to hang on and not shrink. The pain worsens day by day, and it teaches me patience and dependence on angels to strengthen me. I yearn for deliverance to another relm without pain.

Brighten Your Day :)
