Image Nancy Polanski (NAP) shares how she found her faith
By Becky Capps on August 9, 2010

Nancy's story is unlike any I have heard and every time I read it I find myself in awe over how God works in our lives. I am so grateful her life was spared many years ago. What a faith journey she has had! These are Nancy's own words.

Wow, so you had an early battle with life and what it can throw at you. Yes you were lucky, and the other people were not. I counted myself lucky to have got out of my accident relatively unscathed, it does shake the very root of your nerves and how you assess your life.

I also believe that we are all born with a pre-planned path, although I haven't taken the belief you have I do have a belief in a higher power of some sort. The web of life seems to be so intricately interwoven with others how can there not be? I have left that belief to a natural force which to me seems to at times overpower any thoughts I may have other than what I should be doing.

I too have thought that my accident was for the purpose of helping others, as I am strong where some are not, strength is something we either are born with or not. It saddens me to see those who are not so strong to be shunned by many in our society. That includes bugs! Hilarious!

So, Janet, your accident and mine were both life changing experiences. It really did take a long time for my mind to be settled about it. So many things happened in the meantime. Everything we do adds to who we are.

Thanks for reading, and understanding.

So true, what we do has a knock on effect both good or bad.

I had a thought last night that it was maybe your time to tell your story too! Here it is, at the same time as mine, did my story make you dig up old memories?

I'm as human as anyone else, with all the same struggles. I just found out that coping "with" the Lord is a whole lot better than coping "without" Him.

Nancy, thanks so much for sharing this story! I hope others will be helped by it.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Thanks to all of you for the support!

Janet, Becky had asked me to do this several weeks ago. But perhaps your own story of the accident pushed me into saying yes.

That was a brave decision to make Nancy, it's well known that survivors suffer a great deal when having witnessed the death of others.

In a way I'm pleased I decided to air my story too when you asked. I have nothing to hide, and by sharing maybe others who have suffered can take heart that there is hope.

Nancy... What a beautiful testimony and a reminder of how we in our faith need to remember that no matter how much we think we our in control of our lives that it really is God in the driver seat. Bless you for sharing. Group hug

I have been taking a 13 week class called The Truth Project and last night we were talking about just that, Ella! Ultimately God is in control. Not that we are puppets, but as Christ followers,we are redeemed. We all have free will, to choose or not to choose eternity with God. And who would want to be with God in eternity unless they love him on earth? The age old question!

I'm happy to see your comment, Ella, and Becky's follow-up.

I told someone this morning that I've been told my Faith in Jesus is nothing but a crutch. My response is that maybe it IS a crutch, but everybody needs a crutch whether they realize it or not. And if they think they don't, they're fooling themselves.

Oh I thought you were a very cute couple Nancy!

Your pics took me back to the 1960's and the fashion of the time! How innocent we were then, yes I think you look innocent more than cute. Smiling

Group hug Hilarious!

I used to make my own clothes, it was cheaper and more interesting then. A little hang over from the '50's styling with flares coming into fashion, high under the bust A-lines, shifts, bra-dresses, what memories and I loved them all too!
