My wheelchair is my Ebenezer

EDITOR’S NOTE: Actually I stole the title of my post today from Joni Eareckson Tada. She calls her wheelchair her Ebenezer because of all the blessings and God’s favor she has realized. She has been confined to it since she was a teenager.. Click here to read her incredible story

I call my wheelchair my Ebenezer for the same reason Joni Eareckson Tada calls hers her Ebenezer. I have been blessed beyond words since I was confined to one after my stroke in February, 2018.:

Consider just a few things:

  • Physical therapists told me the folks that have this kind of stroke usually die. Yet, here I am.
  • People who have strokes usually have them on their dominate side, yet God spared my left side (my dominate side) so I can still use my left side to write and cook and use Israelitess about the Lord and our perspective relationships with him.
  • I’ve returned to a regular schedule of blogging three days a week (Mon-Wed-(Mon-Wed-https://stevensawyer.wordpress.com/
  • My wife has become the greatest caretaker on the planet.
  • So these are some of the reasons I call this wheelchair my Ebenezer.

In the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel Samuel took a large stone and placed it in plain view so all the Israelites could see it after God helped the Israelites defeat the Philistines so they would be reminded and always be grateful to God for his help.
