R&C is for Remembering & Crying
Saturday, February 27, 2021
I heard a new song by MercyMe and I began to cry as I remembered. It took me all the way back to September 7, 2012, when I had my car accident. I cried for what I thought I had lost at that time. There were so many surgeons and doctors that said that I wouldn't live and when God showed them otherwise, they told me that they had to cut my leg off, but God showed up and showed out and even though I have 15~pounds of stainless steel in my leg, it was not cut off!!! Then after all of that each person told me that I would be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life and if I were lucky, I may be able to use a walker but that my life would be diminished because of what had happened and my limited mobility.
There was even a time when the VA was trying to find someone who would operate on my back and give me the chance to walk again, but NOBODY wanted to touch me because I am a veteran.
Each and every time I would let each person know that they don't know me and I will be walking again, I just didn't know how long it would take and they laughed at me or just rolled their eyes.
Well, it took a long time for all of these naysayers to see the TRUTH of what GOD can do and it turned some of them around to seeking the Lord, which I am grateful. Now, I more or less dare people to "Say, I Won't", because it makes me more determined than ever to allow God to show up and show out. It's so unfair when people put you in the category of "You won't be able to do this" when they don't even know who you are or how God will VINDICATE you too!!!
Now, I was not as bad off as the man in this song, but I saw everything clearly all over again and cried with relief and joy!!! The name of the song by MercyMe is "Say, I Won't".
