This month, Sue shares the story of how God made a way for her family even when it seemed like all hope was gone.

[quote]”HOPE is my favorite word because of the HOPE we have in the faithful love of our God. Our son Daniel survived three serious open heart surgeries by the time he was 11 only to be severely brain injured during a hernia surgery gone wrong in 1996.  Three days after the assault to his brain, as he was fighting for his life in the intensive care unit, a friend came to see us.  She walked to Daniel’s bedside and began to sing, “God will make a way where there seems to be no way.  He works in ways we cannot see, He will make a way for you…”  I had never heard the song before; I was deeply moved!  Immediately I began to ask family and friends to get me the CD, which they did.  I played that song thousands of times in Daniel’s hospital room over the next four months.  The strength and encouragement I found from the Lord through the words of Don’s song was nothing short of a miracle.  And even more important, I believed those words!  I believed God would make a way for Daniel!  A year later, as I grieved the “loss” of my son as we knew him, we received a newletter from Joni and Friends.  At the top of the second page was this verse, Isaiah 43:18-19… “Do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing.  Do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”  I was completely undone!  God had brought me full circle…a year later.  Don’s song and that verse changed my life forever and truly gave me a renewed sense of hope!  From despair to hope…God would make a way!  Presently, in 2013, Daniel–although still severely brain injured–has a college degree in Bible Exposition and Theology, and a book about his life entitled, “When Losing is Winning,”  was recently published and released.  The faithfulness of our God humbles me!  And it all started with a song…a song Don wrote for his own family but one that encouraged me and gave us a reason to keep hoping, to keep going, to keep trusting that He would do “exceedingly abundantly above all we could ask or think according to the power that works in us” (Eph. 3:20).   Praise God from Whom all blessings flow…  He truly is a faithful God.   Thank you.” – Sue[/quote]

      Faith is the victory that overcomes the devil. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world. God bless you for such a trust and hope in Him. Your reward is great. Surely your reward is great. The devil has been put to shame by your faith. God bless you.

      Thank you for sharing that story, Sue! I feel the same way for someone who thought he and his daughter were losing hope. God is good and powerful! Yes, it sure shows the love, faith, and strength but also guidance of God’s in events like yours. I pray for the same thing for that person and his daughter right now. I remind them do not lose faith and hope and do not give up. I remind them also that God never left their side the whole time. Your story is very touching, Sue! God bless you all! God can beat the Devil….Good wins and evil loses.

      God is the greatest Sue, it is His hand that made all these things to come into being. For all His loving kindness is showing to us all the day, what can separate us from Him. This testimony has come to uplift our faith, it’s our duty to testify repeatedly JESUS I love you, teach me to love you more, help me to know you more than this. To sum up, Don Moen is a real gift God has given us, lets cover Him with our prayers all the time. God bless!

      Hi Everyone He did a very amazing things for me too but above all i would like to thank him to save my life my praise is forever. God did miracles to make us belief in him to worship him not because he did something but because he is God he is the Crater who is manifest in the flesh to save as all no one is there with him he was alone when he create and when he save us so all the worship and praise and songs is for him alone.
