Ryan Estrada was 16 years-old when he was in a car accident that caused him to suffer from a severe injury resulting in paralysis.
Because of the accident, Ryan needed to undergo major surgery. Overwhelmed, scared, and depressed, Ryan began to break down. But then something happened which completely transformed his life. While he was about to go into surgery, he saw a divine vision.
“I remember my uncle, I saw him in, like, Heaven, and he told me that I’m going to get through the surgery and everything is going to be alright, so I knew from that moment. I was smiling. I looked over at my mom and told her everything was going to be OK. You know Uncle Jack, he’s got me,” Ryan said.
He also saw his grandfather whom he never met and only saw in their family picture.
Because of his experience, Ryan realized that heaven is real, God is real, and Jesus died so we might live. This unforgettable divine encounter restored his faith and completely took his life from hopeless to filled with God’s hope and love.
It’s the little things in life that Ryan no longer takes for granted. After that experience, Ryan gained a different outlook on life. He became a happy person, and he is full of determination and positive perspective.
He firmly believes that God has a significant purpose for everything he has been going through. He may not know the reason why God allowed him to live, but He can’t wait to find it out.
This testimony proves that God moves in ways we cannot see. Though we may feel like everything is a mess, He will turn the mess in your life to blessings. It may be tragic at first glance, but just wait… God is moving. Let Him turn your story around.
Watch and be inspired by Ryan’s unforgettable experience:
