The purpose of this posting is to share with you all the blessings in my life!! Wow...I have come so far in a relatively short time. The Lord has blessed me beyond anything I could have ever imagined. How can I ever repay those who have given so much to me during this struggle in my life? Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve this outpouring of love and support. How do people go through this kind of tragedy without the support of family and friends? I believe that the blessings in my life have come from God and having a relationship with him. He has laid in front of me so many people who are working with me daily to encourage and lift me up. I could have never prepared for what was going to happen to me this time last year. How do you prepare for that kind of pain and loss? This time last year, I was caring on with my life without worry in the world. The Lord blessed me beyond measure! A great job, good friends, a wonderful church family. In a blink of an eye the world that i knew was going to change. Things weren't going to come as easy for me anymore. I was going to have to work and struggle for everything. I was going to have to learn how to live all over again. 25 years old, and my world would never be the same again! But would it really? Is my life all that different than before? Sure...there are some things that have changed. How I get from one place to another has changed,.....but thats it!
My Christian brothers and sisters have flooded me with love and support. They have sacrificed to spend time with me and lift up my spirits. They have come to my house several times a week to do physical therapy with me. They drove from Little Rock to Atlanta to go through a day of rehab with me and drive back! My Christian family has showed a multitude of doctors and nurses what being a Christian is all about. What a blessing!!! I am so thankful to all of you for your cards and words of encouragement. The Lord is preparing me for something which I have not fully come to understand. He has plans for me which I must fulfill. He is holding up his side of the promises he made to all of us in the bible and now I must do my part!
A saying that has gotten me through many nights was a phrase we used during my stint in ICU. "GOD NEVER PROMISED THIS LIFE WOULD BE EASY......BUT HE PROMISED IT WOULD BE WORTH IT!" I am sure God never wanted this to happen to me but he is using this accident to glorify him. He is healing my body, more than any doctor ever thought was possible. He is showing everyone what is possible through Faith and Prayers. He then gathered around me a multitude of Christian friends and family to help me get through this, because he knew it would be tough.....he knew i needed help! I AM THE LUCKIEST GUY ALIVE!!! I wouldn't change ANYTHING in my life....thats right.....I WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING!
I LOVE YOU ALL!
SO MUCH IN HIM!
