In the split-second in which his hands detached from the Golden Gate Bridge, Kevin Hines regretted his suicide. He survived the fall from about 25 stories. On impact several backbones broke but did not penetrate the heart and lungs. With only his arms and completely exhausted, he paddled to the surface and prayed: I do not want to drown, please save me! A fierce pain hit him when he emerged. He thought that a shark was attacking him, but it was a sea lion that had nudged him and kept him afloat until the coast guards came to rescue.
Kevin’s life won’t be like it was before. The steel plates are only part of the story. Today, Kevin encourages youth and adults to disregard the negative, inner voice and to turn their lives into Jesus’ hands. Why does it take tragic events that make us reason?
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?Psalm 139:7
To try and escape from God is senseless?
