“Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven, their angels are always in the presence of my Heavenly Father.” (Matthew 18:10)
This is one of the crucial passages from the Bible telling us that Guardian Angels are present; they are here to guard men, institutions, cities, and nations. Our life is unpredictable and anything can happen to anyone of us at any moment. That’s why the divine creator has placed a Guardian Angel to watch out for each and every one of us.
Although their presence cannot always be felt unless you are connected deeply with your spirit, certain dire situations will reveal them.
That’s exactly what happened to Arika Stovall—thanks to her Guardian Angel who was looking out for her, she and Hunter Hanks—her boyfriend—are currently alive. Both survived a horrific car crash just a few days into the New Year with only some minor scrapes and bruises. The couple was out driving when Hunter lost control of their truck and ran into a pole at 85 miles per hour.
Naturally, the truck was destroyed as the pole came crashing down directly between them. Arika and Hunter are calling this a miracle; both walked out of the hospital in two days without any broken bones or internal damage.
Arika described the incident on her Facebook where she recalls a lone man with a white beard who comforted her when she was injured and told her that help was coming. She doesn’t know if it was a hallucination or a dream, but her firm belief is that God was looking out for her and Hunter on that fateful day. She believes that the man she met was her “Guardian Angel”.
Read her traumatic yet moving story in her own words:
“Three seconds. That’s how long we had from the moment we drifted off the road until the truck hit the pillar at 85mph. In three seconds Hunter had to handle a situation that would either kill us immediately or save our lives. He keeps beating himself up for my pain but he saved my life. He keeps saying ‘I should have protected you and I didn’t do that’ but he did exactly what he needed to do to make sure my life didn’t end. The whole baseball player part helped him out… if he can hit a 95mph fastball he can do anything. He took care of me.
And when we were both lying in our beds in the ER he found a way to come protect my heart and give me a hug. Lord knows I needed that just as much as my safety.”
“I’m overwhelmed at how little damage was done to Hunter and I in a wreck that should have chopped our bodies in half. I’m in awe of the presence of God in this entire situation. Every part of this experience we went through points directly to Him. The way God helped Hunter to respond exactly the way he did behind the wheel, spinning the truck exactly where it should have to be able to smash into the pillar directly in the middle of me and Hunter so we were both untouched… that doesn’t just happen.
“God doesn’t throw protection around like that for no reason. He does it because he’s not finished with us.”
“I have problems with my heartbeat. When I get anxious or worried it flutters pretty bad… pulling me into panic attacks. The moment we hit and I realized I was conscious I realized that is what was happening to me. While out of breath and trying to move my legs I was screaming… panicked… yelling for Hunter to just say something. I needed to know he was okay.
