I’m getting the oxygen I need.
We all gain energy and momentum from something. Some people find their sails inflated when they see ideas begin to take shape. Others collect “wins,” concrete, measurable moments of success. For me, I think I gain the most from words of encouragement and moments of support. Somebody telling me “I believe in you” propels me forward like nothing else can.
Many of you who receive these emails have been extremely generous in your words of encouragement, regularly sending calls or emails sharing your prayers, your hopes, and your unconditional support during this unknown journey. Those notes accumulate, building together to transform attitudes of doubt and disbelief into confidence, optimism, and the desire to form new trails and take new paths. Your encouragement is not only oxygen, it’s exactly the oxygen I need.
Beyond my gratitude, let me share my testimony: I am a normal man, unremarkable, uninspired. But through the power of an active, holy spirit and a cloud of loving witnesses, I am transformed, bold, and ready to try to bring light into tunnels of darkness.
Thank you, and God bless!
