13 Years Ago – My Life Changed Forever

13 years ago today – my life changed forever – as our family was literally plunged “Into the Deep” in the 2003 Kansas Flint-Hills Flash-Flood over Labor Day weekend. I never could have fathomed what ultimately happened that day, nor the grace and strength from Almighty God that pulled me through.


To this day, I am still humbled by your prayers and God’s grace which have brought me safe thus far. “Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come.” We can all relate in some way, can’t we? Where would we be without Jesus and His Comforter, the Holy Spirit?

People often say to me, “I couldn’t get through that like you.” Indeed, “Neither could I,” is how I typically respond. In my weakness, God is strong. “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13) I still cry. I still grieve. I still miss my Heavenly family. Yet, I still trust God. His joy is my strength.

Be encouraged by what God can do through a broken man like me over these past 13 years. As bleak and devastating as your situation appears, know that Jesus broke the chains of death on the Cross of Calvary. Greater is His power within you than any circumstance this world throws your way.

I encourage you to do your part and cling to Him. Abide in Him. Trust Jesus. Know God. In doing so, you will begin to Live a Life of No Regrets.
