Stephen Ray Nichols -- It's More Than Just A Miracle
The message on the inside of the CD cover reads...
Then, in July 1995, our lives began to slowly systematically change as my health began to deteriorate. The years to follow saw me bedridden man times for weeks, in hospitals and clinics, seeing countless doctors and specialist. First it was a cane, then a walker, and by the year 2001, I was in a wheelchair and pretty certain that I would never walk again, unable to hold things in my hands without dropping than as my muscular system was slowly dying. Many countless nights were spent unable to sleep because of severe pain. Many sermons were preached sitting on a high-backed chair behind the pulpit, with a high fever and on heavy medication. Doctors told my wife and I that my condition could not be helped or slowed down and would eventually kill me. I was much like the man beside the pool of Bethsaida that no one would help to the stirring waters.
I finally told the Lord that I could not pastor anymore unless He healed me. With a broken heart, alone in a hospital bed in the middle of the night, I fully and completely gave my ministry to the Lord and told Him that if He didn't want me to Pastor anymore, that would not be bitter, but would somehow, someway serve Him until He took me home. That very night, when it seemed all hope was gone, the Great Physician passed by my bed and lifted me up. What earthly doctors could not do, He was more able to do. After a year of intense physical therapy, I learned to walk again as the Lord gave strength to me. To see me standing here today, on my own, to preach and sing each Sunday is so amazing. I'm just and old sinner saved by Grace, and yet my loving Saviour still chooses to use me in this great work of His.
It is my humble prayer that God will use this CD to be a blessing to your heart, to encourage you, to challenge you to look up and see Jesus, and to recognize all that He has done for you. Just to think He still loves sinners like us, is "More Than Just A Miracle."
