Two years ago the Holy Spirit woke up a dear friend in the night with an urgent burden to pray for me. I’m forever grateful she didn’t disregard God’s leading because the next morning I began to slur my words, the symptom that ultimately led to being diagnosed with ALS.
What would have become of me had she not stood in intercession for me? It reminds me of our great Intercessor, who stood to pray for the first martyr, petitioning for Stephen with His nail scarred hands.
Perhaps we are never more like our Savior than when we stand in the throne room interceding for those He puts on our hearts.
I’m convinced what Satan meant for evil, God is using for my good & His glory!
I’m equally convinced there are parts of God’s heart that He reserves for sufferers who run to be hidden in His goodness.
We can follow those who kissed the stake they were to be burned upon for loving Christ. How can I do less in my momentary light affliction? I can be Valiant for Christ not because I am a spiritual giant, I’m not, but because the same Spirit resides in me. The same Spirit that spoke the universe into existence, that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me. It’s that Spirit that makes me stubborn for His glory.
I will not let Satan lure me into self pity.
I will not let Satan deceive me into questioning the goodness of God.
I will not let Satan cast me into despair.
Because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! Not I, but Christ!
He deserves that I am stubborn for His glory.
He deserves that I show forth His excellencies.
He deserves that I show His promises are true.
He deserves that I show He is worthy to be praised though He takes away
I’m determined to say with Job, “Naked I came, naked I shall return. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
Will you join me in being stubborn for His glory in your trial? I’d be honored to stand in intercession for you, as you are doing for me!
Don’t Forget to Shine for Jesus
I've never died before or been on hospice. I don't know the protocols or expectations and I don't feel like I am dying, so I guess I'll just go about business as usual trying to shine for Jesus the best I can. I fondly remember as I'd drop my littles at school, I'd...
My Faith Shall Soon Be Sight!
It seems my blessed chariot took a practice run by my house a couple days ago. I was in bed designing Valentine's merch on my eye gaze tablet and noticed how shallow my breaths were and how near I was to passing out. Divinely, Sarah was near. I had my tablet speak to...

What is ALS?
I sure didn’t know any of this until June of last year so I thought I’d post it for my dear prayer warriors who pray so faithful for me! Please be encouraged that God is answering your prayers in unbelievable ways! I will try to make another video to share some...
Even though I’ve tried to be so careful
Even though I’ve tried to be so careful because I have no balance…before church this morning I fell again and broke my right wrist. As my southern girlfriend said when she came to sit with me,“ it’s definitely going yonder way. “ 🤣 Since my left hand barely works,...
