Better to be Broken

by Rick Huntress

Sable Creek Press

Rick Huntress had his whole life mapped out and perfectly planned. He is climbing the ladder of recognition and success in the business world, has a wonderful wife and two daughters, and is important in his own eyes.  But an almost fatal accident leaves his paralyzed and forever condemned to a life in a wheelchair. Will Rick learn the true meaning of a humble and broken spirit before the Lord? Or have his plans for a perfect life truly be gone for good? 

This true life story was eye opening, if not humbling. Here is a man who lost the normal functions of his lower body, but gave God the glory for gaining his soul in return. This brought me to the question in my own life: How far am I willing to go before I am either broken in spirit or lost forever? How many more days will God look down on me and let me continue in my own way? Rick took the worst thing that had ever happened to him, and turned it into good. He is a better father, husband, brother, and son for having experienced what he did. His story should inspire us to never take life for granted, and never expect the breath of life that only God can give.
