Trail Blazers: Joni Eareckson Tada, Swimming Against The Tide 

Joni Eareckson plunged beneath the murky water with very little thought. Diving off a rock was like getting on a horse for the pretty young teenager- and Joni had been born in the saddle. Standing on the edge you eased slowly up onto your tiptoes- then you jumped- forcing your body up and out before, gracefully, disappearing beneath the cool, dark, surface. But as Joni plunged into the water something happened to change all that. A tragic accident meant that Joni was paralysed from the neck down. However, as the awful realisation began to dawn that something was really, really wrong, Joni turned to the one she knew would be there- God.
Joni's story is not a story about a miraculous healing, it's not even a story about a tragic accident- it's a story of an ordinary girl who showed how God's power transforms lives. Healing may have been the amazing miracle that didn't happen but Joni's ongoing work with thousands of disabled people throughout the world is a miracle in itself.
