Gary Miracle and MercyMe's "Say I Won't"

 Someone shared this story with me, and I'd like to pass it on.  It's about a man named Gary Miracle.  His name is appropriate.  Gary is a man who is seeing miracles in the midst of a very difficult situation.  Almost a year ago, he had a bad case of the flu that turned into sepsis.  He lost all four of his limbs as a result.

Instead of giving up or becoming bitter, Gary is striving to move forward and recover as much as possible.  Long before the situation that began in late December, he worked with the band MercyMe.  His friends in the music group have turned his story into a song called "Say I Won't."

One of the stanzas goes,

"I can do all things
Through Christ who gives me strength
So keep on saying I won't
And I'll keep proving you wrong."

I live the "impossible" each day.  Whatever your situation, I hope that you find encouragement in hearing Gary Miracle's story and that it leads you to consider your approach to what others call impossible.  Seek to live the impossible every day.  And ask yourself, what is your source of strength?  Is it firm and viable?  Good questions to think about as we end 2020 and begin a new year.

P.S. If you'd like to see Gary's story for yourself, you can watch MercyMe's music video here.
