Run the race

Happy October all,

“Brandon is doing fine.” That’s the message I received from Brandon’s mom yesterday, texting from Macon. Yes, Brandon is now in Macon continuing his brave and awe-inspiring journey. I visited with him last week while he was still in Atlanta. And while not able to communicate, he was alert and aware. He continues to touch just about everyone he encounters with his remarkable presence and light. We know without a doubt it is the Holy Spirit who indwells.

His mom joked the other day that one of Brandon’s nurses, who in the beginning seemed rather stoic and somber, surprised her one afternoon as she walked out the room saying, “You have to keep the faith.” We all know that’s the effect Brandon has on people!

I am reminded of Brandon’s words he shared during his testimony at church in 2012. Those words are that “God is Able.” Whatever we might face, however unexpected and life-changing it is, God is able to keep us while we go through it and bring us out on the other side. But we must do our part and keep going. So let us “run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfector of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Amen.

  1. thank u for the update! a day doesn’t go by, really, half the day doesn’t go by before i can worship God for brandon’s deliverance. i believe God for His healing. i believe He’s healed in Jesus’ name and i continue to pray the Lord rebukes the devourer, rebukes the enemy’s lie to us that brandon is not healed. some days barely an hour goes by before i’m again praying and praising God about brandon! our God reigns! 🙂
