David had half of his lung removed on Monday and was at church on Sunday.


After the 11:00AM service yesterday, David introduced himself to me.  He said that he used to come to Graystone but recently moved to Monroe.  I told him about our Walton Campus, but he said he felt led to come to the Ozora Campus.  He shared with me that he had been battling cancer and had 1/2 of his lung removed on Monday. I said, “When?”  He said, “Monday”.  I said, “6 days ago?”  He said, “Yes”.

He said that he wasn’t supposed to be driving and his wife thought he was crazy for going to church.  I told him he was crazy.  He said that he knew God wanted him to come and figured God could get him safely to church and back home.  He said that Wayne and Holly Shelnutt’s story encouraged him, and God spoke to him through my message.  I ended up praying for him in the middle of the church lobby and celebrating with him that he is now cancer free. PRAISE GOD!

I’m not really sure where I’m going with this blog post.  I just thought I would share this story with you.  This man had 1/2 his lung removed on Monday and drove himself from Monroe to Graystone Church on Ozora Road on Sunday.  And God spoke to him in a powerful way.

What are your thoughts on this cool story?  

What can we learn from David and how can we apply it to our lives?

  1. That’s a cool story. Not many people come if they have been just a little sick the week before. I pray God uses your message that he was able to hear and does something awesome with it!

  2. Praise God for bringing David to our Church yesterday! This was no accident! I will join with many others in praying for complete healing for him. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Great story! I think this is a good example of no matter what is going on in our lives, we can and need to make room for God’s word. Even if it means personal sacrifice.
