#ALNEWSFLASH: Our TEAM is growing! That’s right, our East Tennessee Intern, then North Texas Intern, turned overall Ministry Intern is continuing to climb the nonprofit ministry ladder and is now our MINISTRY SUPPORT LEAD.
We are so excited to have Kendahl Hancock joining the @accesslifeinc staff even though it is only part time as she finishes her college degree. We so love her attitude, heart to serve, sense of humor and combination of unique skills making her versatile and a great fit for working with us. She has even won the approval of #ALMASCOTLULU. :)
So please join us in CONGRATULATING Ms. Hancock to Access-Life and #DISABILITYMINISTRY. :)
In today’s world we are bombarded by a variable plethora of commercials, billboard ads, political options, medical advice and even often pushed to accept or tolerate the ungodly and unholy agendas of many factions, groups and organizations. So as Christians what are we to do? Are we to follow everything we hear, believe even what we see with our own eyes or cling to God’s pure light, loving character and promises?
I think is obvious that the answer is for us all to rise above the clutter to where we can clearly hear Gods good promises and see His wholesome and beautiful blessings. However that is not always an easy thing to do now days. We can choose to believe to the Good News and think the best in Christ but it is still hard not to be dragged down by the immense negativity and untruth being thrown about in so many places.
However, if we can put a laser tight focus on our Lord Jesus and choose to have an unwaivering faith in God’s promises, we can rise above the waves of life and even tread on top of them much like Peter did when Christ called him to leave the boat in the storm.
Sometimes we even have to choose to believe God’s promises above what we hear and see in times when to our human minds think things make sense to us. In fact, I had a great reminder of this recently when visiting the orthopedic doctor about my wife Leanne’s broken arm. She had broken it right below her shoulder and despite what we were originally told no surgery was needed. PTL! However when we saw the x-ray it was a clean break and did not look good. The doctor though reassure us that it was lined up ok and should heal on it’s own. GREAT NEWS!
So four weeks later we showed back up for follow-up x-rays. Between the brake and then we had been praying fervently that God would heal her arm and make it stronger than before. When we saw the second x-ray we were a bit discourage and even concerned as to us the x-ray looked no different that the first one and the gap in-between her break looked no smaller. In turn, we continued praying while waiting on the doctor. To our surprise when the doctor entered he said things were looking good and it was healing up nicely. I was over joyed but had to ask about the gap and how it was not coming together. Then I was educated that the bone dos not necessarily shift and close together but rather new bone grows through and around the break. In turn making it stronger than before! WOW.
What a lesson for me to not believe my eyes but God’s promises: The prayer of a righteous man [or woman] is powerful and effective. James 5:16b. God had heard the prayers of the many praying for Leanne’s healing and he was bringing it to fruition despite what we thought we saw.
I HOPE THIS STORY ENCOURAGES YOU TO BELIEVE GOD OVER WHAT YOU HEAR AND SEE AND THAT IT LEADS YOU TO WALK MORE IN THE LIGHT OF HIS LOVE.
