“For God has not given us the spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NLT
The Story Behind Got Got Me, God Got You
Within my mind the question God asked me was “How bad do you want this?”
Looking back I wanted to just wake up and have only lived this in a dream, but my reality was one moment I was the best wrestler in the country and the next moment placed me in a coma fighting for my life.
John 10:10 says, The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus has come so we may have life and have it to its fullness!
The enemy we all face tried to steal my joy, kill off my dreams and destroy my hope, but God stepped in as God does for us every-time. I just had to have faith in it!
I could’ve let the many doubts, worries, and fears stop my progress. I could have settled for the condition I was in. But my Faith in God, is me being able to do anything through Christ who gave me the strength I needed. I had enough hope to not stop until what I was praying for has come into existence.
Instead of focusing on how long it will be (until), I just worked for a (chance to again). I then looked up and after a few months of rehab, a re-broken and wired up jaw, lots of prayers I was heading into a doctors office to get cleared to go back to school and start wrestling again!
I heard “no” so many times that I got tired of hearing “no”.
I decided to listen to the (still small) voice of God in my head telling me “keep going”, “don’t stop”, “you’re able”, “Do you believe in me?” “I am with you!”
God never promises us an easy life, and yes, bad things happen to good people in a broken world, but that is exactly why we are still able through Christ!
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 me I faced this giant just as David stood up against Goliath and instead of taking everything lost as it being over I stood strong in God just as Job did! I too prevailed and my blessings are still coming. 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!
Regret No Opportunities. God Got Me, God Got You!
