Perseverance for life

If you can, imagine marrying the love of your life and merely seven months later, tragedy strikes — leaving your spouse on life support with doctors telling you that there’s not much hope.

That’s exactly what happened to Danielle Davis, who received a dreadful phone call one sunny July day in 2011 that her husband, Matt, had been involved in a horrific motorcycle accident on a Savannah, Ga., interstate.

But after three years of living on life support in a deep coma and after thousands of prayers from his loving wife, Matt miraculously woke up one day and uttered two words that Danielle won’t soon forget.

“I’m trying,” he said.

Matt had attempted to merge onto an interstate and hit an illegally parked vehicle, which sent him flying off of his motorcycle at a high rate of speed. He broke multiple bones, lacerated organs and took heavy trauma to his brain.

As he lay in his hospital bed, completely incapacitated and unable to speak, Danielle was there, always. She prayed, a lot.

When doctors finally told her the devastating news that there was nothing else they could do to support Matt’s recovery, she knew that she had to make a choice — pull the plug or keep fighting.

But she said her decision was easy, telling a local news reporter, “I knew that God could get us through that,” she said. “I didn’t think it was too big for God.”

They moved Matt from the hospital to Danielle’s mother’s North Carolina home, where they were tasked with the job of 24-hour care for Matt (H/T Mad World News).

Days, weeks, months and even years passed before that one glorious day when Matt awoke to the sight of his beautiful, supportive wife.

“I saw her, and I was like, yeah!” Matt said.

Matt continues to make what doctors describe as “unprecedented” progress in his recovery — one that doctors originally didn’t think was possible.

Her rock-solid, undying faith helped push her through the most trying time in her life and it paid off in a big way. Matt’s willpower and determination can only be measured in heroic proportions.

If this isn’t a prime example of what a deep faith in God can deliver, I don’t know what is.

Share this on Facebook and Twitter if you think Danielle’s amazing faith and Matt’s determination were vital in his road to recovery.
