Heather Friesen is 26-years-old, beach volleyball player and loves to go hiking on an adventuers with her GoPro camera, this time she was in Hawaii on the Ka’au Crater Trail and narrowly cheated death. She was on the sheer rocks looking over the edge of the waterfall with her GoPro when she slipped on a wet rock and plunged 50-feet down the waterfall with the camera filming! She’s suffering from 10 broken ribs, a fractured scapula, and a collapsed lung. This happened back in 2016, but Friesen just released the video now and talked about the fall that changed her life forever on the podcast, “In The World of Female Sports”.

A year ago today marks both the worst day of my life and the best day of my life. With the 10 broken ribs, collapsed lung, fractured scapula, and some scrapes, how could this possibly be the best day of my life? Because I was shown God’s love in incredible ways that forever transformed me. He saved me from death and has renewed my mind to see a world where God is my number one, and absolutely nothing comes before Him. When everything that I put my identity in was taken away from me in an instant, all I had left was God. I turned to Him in amazing ways and would be writing a never-ending post if I shared all the countless ways He has changed my life in the past year. So, I thank God for this accident. Each and every day. Because without it, I wouldn’t know His love in such an encompassing and undeniable way. I also can’t thank enough every single person who was there for me through this. I’ve got some fantastic people in my life! I will leave you with parts of Psalm 73 that I accidentally stumbled upon one day and that continue to touch the depths of my heart: “But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.” “Yet I am always with you; You hold me by my right hand.” “My flesh and my heart my fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” “But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.” #Thankful #Grateful #Blessed #DontGoChasingWaterfalls #CrazyYear 🙌🏼🙏🏼
