Earlier in the year when asked by Kristi Woods to participate in her #YourStory series, I was both humbled and honored. As I began to think about sharing my story, I asked God to reveal what I should share.
For those of you who do not know, I survived a massive stroke in the Summer of 2010 that paralyzed all of the joints on my left side. It has been an extremely difficult and painful experience as I battle through my recovery.
However, it has been an enlightening and transforming period of my life that has allowed me to see myself as Jesus sees me.
I want to share with you some of my earlier experiences that led me to that day in July of 2010…a day I will never forget. I was born in Texas, but my father was in the Army so we moved around a bit.
At the age of five, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. I knelt down on the side of my bed and asked Jesus to come into my heart. I was not sure at that time exactly what salvation meant, but I knew I did not want to go to hell…of that I was sure. You can read the rest of my #YourStory post by visiting Kristi’s site here. Please feel free to return here and share your thoughts on my story.
