A trauma came in, of course many visit this sanctioned Level 1 Facility. Motor Vehicle Accident’s, Falls, Shootings, Drownings, Attempted Murders, Rapes, Animal mauling’s, Suicide attempts and the occasional Electrocutions. This is what I have seen in my ten years of service. Yes, you think you’ve seen it all, however, this was a personal first accompanied with the smell of burning flesh.
This day a man was moving a tree, holding the tree blindly at the base the branches touch live power lines. Electric bolt travels through tree and then through this patient. Exit wounds are seen bilaterally, slit wide and larger then a golf ball, his socks melted into his feet. All his flesh looks like a bad sun burn and he’s alive. He is on a 2l n/c and stable, talking, one (me) would think initially “a miracle”, however this is not the case. His inside has changed, he’s still “cooking” its like a “microwave” zap.
All his blood is now changed, it’s boiled, the platelets aggregate as the vessels constrict, meaning glucose, potassium all electrolytes are charged, levels will INCREASE and pump through the body now. Normal ph balance is no more. (The reason “stress” will kill you) So though he looks like he survived his body inside is still “cooking”. He may be alive today, like us all, yet we must ask ourselves; “Has a trauma changed your DNA?”
What have you conditioned yourself to “do”? How much of the presence of God is in your actions or are they all self centered?
When we have become so accustomed to striving to meet personal wants, our lives become conditioned, almost rote. People around you may even know of your routine and you may not. Whether you want to admit it or not, we are affecting EVERYONE we come in contact with.
We need to discipline ourselves to focus on the Precious Creator who Loves us so much. He wants us to see Him leading us through whatever shadow of death we have to face. His Grace is Present in EVERY adversity, we must stay focused on His Precious Promise, not forgetting what God has already done. Every day a priceless GIFT! Yes sometimes we just need to keep our mouths quiet and focus on what is really happening, block out the noise of opinions and see the truth.
No need to strive in my strength, instead lean on Him knowing on earth as it is in Heaven is right here. Not living for the collection of material mansions, instead BE the temple on earth, release what’s living inside, refreshing ALL whom you come in contact with … forever more.
Yes, accepting Holy Spirit to come in your lives, leaning not on your own understanding, PRAISING HIM, being still enough to LISTEN to the truth,
the fact of the matter is a shadow of truth yet to come!
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness”
It’s time to travel into the future with His Grace, His Power, His strength. To be what He created us to be, HIS original plan restored.
Yes it’s time to be living, hoping and the greatest of all of these is loving~ amen
