Lesson 4

Lesson 4: Keep the faith, baby. I have found that keeping

the church involved in all the aspects of my journey has been very

beneficial to me. From the church prayer chain that has prayed for the

success of my surgeries and treatments, to the personal visitations

from our senior pastor, to the joy I have found in singing in the

choir, to the Thursday noon small group meetings to the daily prayers

that my wife and I share, we have found strength in keeping our faith.

Our minister, Greg Young, frequently prayed with me for the healing

touch of the Lord, and visited us both at home and in the hospitals in

Princeton and New York.

This faith may have started in my early days in Bowling Green when my

mother would dress up all her children in their Sunday best, and we

would walk the four blocks to the Methodist Church and take up a row

of eight; mom and dad, and the six children. This was normally

followed by a typical Sunday afternoon dinner, with, perhaps, one or

two of my father’s students in attendance. A Bible verse which I have

found particularly relevant to my current situation is Isaiah, chapter

40, verse 31. "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their

strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and

not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint." Very well said.
