Well, I’ve mentioned to you my friend Tyson. If you are new to reading my blog and are thinking, “Who is Tyson?”, here’s a link to my first blog post about Tyson. And please, read this next post. God’s been progressively doing amazing works in Tyson. It’s awesome to see. If in a year I still don’t know what I’m supposed to do with my life, I’ll be so grateful I have this blog to remember Tyson’s progress. It’s so beautiful to see and acknowledge God’s hand working.
ANYWAYS, Tonight he updated his FB status for the first time since the accident. 🙂 This is what it said:
“I miss everyone in chattanooga really bad. I continually thank God for what hes doing, and I thank him for all the prayer support I know I have. I cant do much by myself, or anything, but its teaching me to rely on others. pray for continued success in physical training, and that I can get potty trained again. Know that God’s in control of everything, and I hope to be with you all soon.”
Amazing. He is back to the Tyson everyone knows and loves. And praise God, he still has his sense of humor! Here’s a link to the FB prayer group. 🙂
“Shout for joy to God, all the earth; sing the glory of His name; give to Him glorious praise!… Come and see what God has done: He is awesome in His deeds toward the Children of man…. Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of His praise be heard, who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip.” Psalm 66 verses 1,2,5,8, & 9.
So, I remembered why I wanted to update my blog frequently. I wanted to make posts daily so that my posts won’t be so long! I know reading stuff online for long periods of time gets boring, but today’s post is GREAT. So, please stick it out.
Thursday night at our CRU weekly meeting one of the campus directors came up to the front to talk about Tyson. He talked about his involvement with CRU, the accident, and how God has been healing him. We all prayed for Tyson and then sang a ton of worship song about God’s healing powers. It was a really, really overwhelming, powerful night. I felt the presence of God so much. I know everyone in that room was opened up to God’s faithfulness and love. It was super cool to see God pull His body together like that.
Friday afternoon I went to Bonnie’s house just to hang out. About an hour after being there, she gets this call from Tyson’s girlfriend Jenna. Jenna says, “Tyson’s mom walked into his room this morning and Tyson said, ‘Hi Mom.'” That’s not unusual because Tyson has started saying people’s names but normally people had to ask him questions for him to speak. Tyson didn’t just stop though with “Hi mom.” He continued talking. He was asking questions about where he was, what was wrong with him, he got all these scars, what happened, and my favorite question was, “Am I missing school?” Thursday night Tyson could only say names. Friday morning he is asking questions! REALLY!? Is this real? Yep. There’s no way I can ever deny the existence of God. This alone is proof that there is a God who hears and heals. Amazing. Here’s a picture!!!! 🙂
I was talking to Bonnie the other day about people expecting God to show Himself or perform miracles before they’ll believe. The truth of the matter is, He does perform miracles everyday. He’s doing them now. We, the human race, tend to give credit for His work to others. We could say that Tyson is just a strong fighter, the doctors are just really good at what they do. So often, our eyes see what’s fleeting, and we give what’s tangible (and un-eternal) the credit. Our eyes are not seeing what is truly there. Proverbs 20:12 says, “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both.” Our eyes were created to see Him. We are blind too often. Open your eyes. See Him. See His hand working. (I’m saying this to myself too!) God is too glorious not to notice.
That’s all for now! I have a lot more I could say, but I’ll hold off for your sake! 🙂 I love you whoever you are.
