7-year-old Eva Love Sherbondy suffered a severe head injury in a freak golf cart accident. And now, her devoted mom Lindsay is rallying all the prayer warriors she can find to pray for a miracle. Because this inspiring family knows God can do the impossible!
Lindsay and Dugan Sherbondy are living every parent’s worst nightmare. A day of fun turned tragic when their 7-year-old daughter, Eva Love, was involved in a golf cart accident.
For reasons that are likely to remain unknown, Eva Love just leaned off and fell when riding in a golf cart with her friends.
“No answer as to why. No hills, bumps, crazy driving, nothing,” Lindsay wrote on social media.
Though it was a very short fall, Eva Love suffered a severe brain injury. And since then, her devastated parents have received nothing but terrifying news from the doctors.
But this brave, inspirational family is leaning on the Great Physician to decide the future of their little angel!
Family Finds Hope In God After Golf Cart Accident
Following the golf cart accident, doctors performed emergency brain surgery and then put Eva Love, who was in critical condition, into a coma. And since then, Lindsay says the little girl’s prognosis has only gotten worse.
Her parents have been posting Eva Love health updates on their social media accounts. It’s also where they have also been pleading with friends, family, strangers — any and all prayer warriors — to come together to lift up prayers for miraculous healing.
Because though the times are dark and the prognosis bleak, Lindsay Sherbondy is using two words to hang on to hope — BUT GOD.
“I am more scared than I have ever been,” she wrote on Instagram, “but I know I worship a God who is in the business of miracles, who hears us, who is the Ultimate Physician, and that is what we will cling to!!!!”
Prayers For Eva Love To Make A Full Recovery
Through conversations with the doctors, the family has decided to take Eva Love off of the medications keeping her sedated. It means truly placing her recovery into the hands of the Lord.
And though it’s terrifying to know this could mean losing their daughter, Dugan says he has peace about the decision, quoting a verse from Exodus.
"The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm." ~ Exodus 14:14
The way Lindsay and Dugan are leaning on God through this whole process is truly inspiring.
The situation is reminiscent of a crucial scene in the movie Breakthrough, which tells the true and miraculous story of how prayer saved 15-year-old John Smith (here’s a link to John Smith’s real news story). Eventually, doctors could do no more for John but God was faithful in restoring him to complete health!
