two people, two kidneys, one Body

As I read about men digging through roof tiles to lower their paralyzed friend to Jesus, it struck me that there are two kinds of people: these, whose faith enabled them to be a part of Jesus healing the man, and those who stood in the crowd and were amazed. While it’s amazing to watch what God is doing, my whole being cries out for more than that: I thirst to experience it – to be involved in what He is doing. And that can happen, as it happened with those four men and their paralyzed friend, only when my faith in what God can do motivates me to action

A pair of FCA Endurance teammates have been involved in God’s work over the past several years. Experiencing His faithfulness and power has brought them to a new level recently.

Chad Hawker started Iron Prayer in 2000 at Kona’s Ironman Triathlon World Championship. Largely through the service of Robin and Troy Soares, God has now grown it to encompass services at more than 30 major triathlons around the world, hosted by a variety of volunteers. For more info, see http://www.fcaendurance.com/IronPrayer/.

Over the past months, however, the Soares have taken another huge step: donating a kidney to a young man whose kidneys were failing. Not only did Troy donate his kidney, but he also sacrificed half of his race season, an unknown amount of training and countless hours spent recovering. What amazing faith! Troy is now working through his 6-8 week recovery while 18-year-old Bobby begins his new life, finally with the hope of freedom from intensive, constant medical care. Now that is working as a Body of Christ!

Praise God for modern-day examples like this!

Okay, so I will put one out here! A friend of mine from High School, Colter and his wife are entcepixg twins. They have been trying for several years to get pregnant, so it is a blessing now that they are! They just found out the little boy has a diaphragmatic hernia, which can be fatal. I looked online and there is a great chance that surgey (either in utero or after birth) will fix it. He is very strong in his faith and knows the Lord can perform miracles. So, we are praying for a miracle! Pray for God to heal that little boy and to give the doctor the wisdom to know how to proceed.

First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that
I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas
out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

Thank you!
