“For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
The Story Behind Got Got Me, God Got You
I hoped you watched or will watch the video!!!
In my mind the question was never “Will I comeback from this?” I felt God was asking me, “Do you believe I can bring you back from this?”
To be honest, I wanted to just wake up and have only lived this in a dream, but my reality on December, 1 2013 was I woke up as the best collegiate wrestler in the country and by night fall I was in a coma fighting for my life.
Wow!!! Life took an unexpected turn for me! Though this happened to my flesh, the real fight was in my spirit!
The devil tried to break me. He tried to steal my joy, kill off my dreams and destroy my hope to achieve my goals.
God stepped in as God does for us every-time.
I just had to have faith! Which I did. That was the battle because I still had doubts, worries, and fears trying to stop my progress.
I worked so hard to be the number 1 college wrestler in the country and then I was in a near-fatal car accident that wasn’t my fault.
My teammate, his dad and I were coming back from the Iowa vs Iowa State dual wrestling meet. Then an SUV going 75mph slammed into us at a complete stop! I was in the back seat of the car I was in!!!
The doctors told my family I might die, or if I did wake up I would be a 4 year old vegetable. They pretty much gave up on me based off of what they could understand about my condition, but God had other plans.
My mother was told, “Your son could die in his coma.” Then she heard, “If he wakes up he will be in a vegetative state”, she was told, “look for facilities that could care for him.” It’s sad because she heard a lot of doubts, but the best thing she heard was, “There’s no medical reason why we are letting you and your son go home!”
God did so much for me in 24 days. So many blessings in just one of many of God’s amazing testimonies. God used me to share God’s glory for everyone to know what God has done and what God will do!
After a few months of rehab, a re-broken, wired up jaw, lots & lots of prayers I was heading into a doctors office to get cleared to go back to school and start wrestling again!
Instead of giving power to the doubts, I decided to listen to the voice of God in my head telling me
“Do you believe in me?”
“I am with you!”
God never promises us an easy life, but God does promise to be be with us and never leave us nor forsake us. Yes, bad things happen to good people in a broken world, but that is exactly why we are still able through Christ!
I wrestled a year later, I won. I graduated with a B/A in Sports management. I graduated with my M/A in Counseling. I’m being used by God intentionally in the lives others to help them. The Bible isn’t there to just tell us what happened at one point of time, the Bible is alive and active to show us what we are to do now in our lives!
How many times have you let another human’s “No” stop your progress? In my mind those “no’s” are influences from enemy forces to do what he has come to do & the enemy doesn’t sleep! That’s when you have to know angels of protection are encamped around you.
Faith is believing in what you can’t see, so knowing that the enemy can do anything but kill you. We face giants just as David stood up against Goliath. We too will prevail and we just have to have Faith!
Regret No Opportunities. God Got Me, God Got You!
