I am sharing this because there are way too many nuggets in here to not share.
What a wonderful story Warren gives us. One of how life can knock us down and bring us to our knees.
A testimony, if you will, of how life sucker punched him, kicked him and knocked him until finally he came face to face with the cross. Life didn’t change after that encounter…Warren did.
As I said there are so many nuggets in here but this one spoke the most to me and it just happens to be true…To know that life is best fought, with a surrendered heart!
God bless you brother!
Life, can sometimes come at you hard; that you think you’re in a fight, a fight for your life. I learned at an early age, how to bob and weave pretty good. Float like a butterfly, no; I wasn’t the greatest, but I knew how to hold my own… heart. Life just wouldn’t allow me to catch my breath, so I just held it all in; breathing seemed to be optional. But life still decided to hit me with a sucker punch; it knocked me to One knee. I was absolutely stunned; life should have known, I wasn’t about to stay down. So I gathered up my pride, stuck it back in my heart and said; life, is that all you have… to offer?
So I got off my knee, got back in the fight; only to continue with the same bobbing and weaving routine. I wasn’t a sucker. Yeah…

Guys, go check out this wonderful post on something we all suffer from at times…doubt. Then go and do this…
Share your testimony with someone who doubts in the LORD. Show them HIS hands on your life and tell it in an authentic way, because our testimonies are our biggest examples of the TRUTH.
The power behind a testimony is amazing!
If you are like me, there are times where doubt creeps into your life. We as humans tend to be doubters. We doubt that our money will not go far enough, that a needed check will never arrive on time and that a deadline will not be met. We doubt and yes, we worry. How often do we doubt GOD too?
We read HIS words and we sing HIS praises, but still we doubt. We doubt HE will answer in spite of all HIS promises given to us in the bible. We doubt ourselves, we doubt others and we doubt the ONE who promised HE would never leave us.
DEUTERONOMY 31: 6 “……..FOR IT IS THE LORD YOUR GOD WHO GOES WITH YOU, HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.”
PSALM 94: 14 ” FOR THE LORD WILL NOT FORSAKE HIS PEOPLE; HE WILL NOT ABANDON HIS HERITAGE.”

Yes, yes and yes. One thing I have learned journeying with a dear friend who lost her son, several years ago, is that each person grieves differently and that there is no set time limit for the grieving process.
Please do not rush this. Allow them to grieve in their own way and at their own pace. Would you want to walk in their shoes? I think not…
Did you know that the majority of people who have lost a loved one are made to feel guilty about their grief?
Did you know that someone grieving often isolates themselves, disconnects from people, because they feel misunderstood?
Unfortunately, a loved one left behind will often suffer in silence because they have been told:
It’s time to move on.
Aren’t you over this yet?
You need to stop dwelling on this.
It’s been long enough, it’s time to let go.
Aren’t you ready to get on with your life yet?
Or, some of my favorites:
He’s in a better place.
Time heals all wounds.
God needed another angel.
Everything happens for a reason.
Although, some of these things are said with the best of intentions, let me make this clear, they just aren’t helpful! At all!
We didn’t lose something that can be replaced. We lost a person. For…
