Well its Friday night and I have had a world wind of a week! On Monday we flew to Little Rock where I had a speaking engagement at my church that Wednesday. When we arrived back at my old apartment I was excited to see all my old friends from Little Rock. We were laughing the second they walked in the door which really made me miss all my friends in Arkansas.
On Tuesday I woke up and went to Baptist Rehab where we filmed my progress to be put in a video for the talk on Wednesday night. I had prepared my talk for weeks. Every night I laid awake in bed thinking of the message I wanted to tell everyone at Pleasant Valley. I wasn't nervous because I had gathered all my thoughts and felt very prepared for the talk. However.....once on stage, I started reliving the terrible days in ICU. I looked out into the crowd and saw my friends and all the people who were there for me through out the toughest days of my life and the emotions could not stay inside. I struggled throughout the entire talk. I have tried SO HARD to block those days out of my mind. Waking up in ICU for the first time at 2 or 3 in the morning and asking the doctor why I couldn't feel my legs and hearing his response was an absolute nightmare! That second my world was turned upside down. However, I never gave up faith that no matter WHAT the doctors told me I WOULD WALK AGAIN! I know that God can perform miracles and with enough prayers I would be healed through faith!
I posted a link to the video of the rehab session at the bottom of this page. Know that all of these movements are mine! My legs are only being lifted up and supported. My improvements are TRULY A MIRACLE FROM GOD! However, I do not want everyone to think that I will be up and walking tomorrow or the next week. I still have a LONG WAYS TO GO! I ask you to please never stop praying for me and my complete healing!
I know that God has a plan for me that is the ONLY reason I am alive today. If my struggles can bring just one person to Christ than this has all been worth it! I am not going to lie to you this is hard. This is the hardest thing I probably will ever face but through faith and the continued support of everyone of you I will recover from this terrible tragedy. I will take this tragedy and turn it into something wonderful to glorify God! PLEASE, please now is not the time to give up on prayer. He has showed us that nothing is impossible and he has already performed a miracle in my life, lets keep asking him for my complete healing and together through faith we will show everyone a miracle and glorify him in doing so!
