Bryant Collins Saves a Life on a Georgia Highway After Changing His Own

Trivia: Name two Hollywood events celebrating milestone anniversaries this week? (Answer below)

It was just another day’s work. So a Georgia man was travelling on the highway on a service call for a disabled vehicle. He glimpses from the corner of his eyes what he believed to be a baby in the grass next to the highway shoulder. As fate would have it, Bryant Collins saves a life after changing his own.

The baby had crawled almost 300 yards from home through the woods. She was picked-up by Collins on the side of the road just feet from the bustling roadway. Collins called 911 and waited almost two hours for emergency personnel to arrive. He said he kept the baby calm by turning on some gospel music.

Collins has had his own bouts with the law in the past. He spent years in a Federal lock-up on drug manufacturing charges. He said he made a conscious decision to change his life while in prison. His example teaches that the decision to change happens in an instant but lasting change happens over time.

He’s stayed out of trouble and continues to be a model citizen. So much so that he feels God had a role for him to play in saving the life of this baby. Collins says he doesn’t believe in coincidences. He feels this was a God appointed time for him. It’s been said that coincidences are God’s way of staying anonymous.

Collins has received lots of attention since the story broke. He’s been seen on interviews with local and national media. We can just imagine how inspired he feels for doing some good for his fellow man. That level of “juice” cannot be manufactured in the lab. When God uses us, we have the best possible high.

Tip: A high form of inspiration is when God uses us for good in a way that money can’t buy and can’t be manufactured in the lab.
