Eight Year Survival Thankfulness – Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow…

Eight years ago to the day, I suffered a (significant, three centimeter – in the words of my neurologist) cerebral hemorrhage, then was in neuro ICU for a week and rehab for about a month.  For that first week, my left side was paralyzed. It was a frightening time to say the least.

There can be no doubt at all that our LORD definitely and distinctly had His hand in my healing before, during, and after the hemorrhage.  Here is a testimony (given at All Saints Episcopal Church in Winter Park, FL) of the unlimited  and tangible reality of His presence I gave twelve days after my release from the hospital.  Please review and share with friends, family, and others.

Eight years later, I reflect upon this with deep, deep thankfulness that I was the recipient of such overflowing grace.  And, in some way to preserve the importance of His presence in the lives of His children, I’m still receiving it even now.   In my experience the miracle of healing leaves a permanent imprint of the presence of the LORD. I guess His presence is stuck on me now. I can’t even begin to convey to you the joy or the value of this! I am so very, very, very, very, very, very, very richly blessed!

Yes, God is realer than real!!!

I offer Him my rather plain reverence and praise for His love and care for His often wayward children!!!

Please enjoy this wonderful hymn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hv_a4v6b3QI One of my very favorites.

AMEN!

Renewed Thankfulness – a Healing Anniversary

Seven years ago to the day, I suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, then was in neurologic ICU for a week and rehab for about a month.  For that first week, my left side was paralyzed.

The LORD definitely and distinctly had His hand in my healing all the way through.  Here is a testimony (given at All Saints Episcopal Church in Winter Park, FL) of the unlimited  and tangible reality of His presence I gave twelve days after my release from the hospital.  Please give it a listen and share with friends, family, and others.

Now, seven years later, I reflect upon this with renewed thankfulness that I was the recipient of such overflowing grace.  To be sure, I’m still receiving it even this long after the event.  In my experience the miracle of healing leaves a permanent imprint of the presence of the LORD –  a gift of indescribable value.

Yes, God is realer than real!!!

I offer Him my rather ordinary reverence and praise for His love and care for His often wayward children!!!

AMEN!

My Experience in Praying with Fire

Over 5 years ago in the middle of my second year in seminary, I suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.  This illness left its mark in several significant ways.  The audio file, My Experience in Praying with Fire, is a brief account of the reality of God’s presence in the lives of those He calls his children.  Please give it a listen.  Thank you!

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine…
