The Roy Wolfe Story (Part Two)

(After his stay in the hospital, Roy) went through about 3 months of rehab and went home, just to find that my girl friend would just do her laundry and leave.
I still remember looking out the window thinking… I have no job, no money, in a wheelchair and a nine year old depending on me.
Then my ex-wife took me to court to prove me an unfit parent. I was desperate…. Something told me to get out the phone book and write to every church in the yellow pages. I sent letters to 28 local churches. No one responded. Two weeks passed and I got a knock at the door. A Christian from the Northeast Church of Christ came to visit and see how I was doing. I had not written them because they had already given me food. I didn’t want to bother them or have them thinking I was a ‘moocher’.
They helped me get back on my feet. I was surprised when one of their elders came by and wanted to study the Bible with me. It was a few weeks later, on April 19, 1999, I was immersed into Jesus.
Before all this, I didn’t even know what a Bible looked like, but as a new Christian I couldn’t put it down. I went to every Bible study I could to learn and grow spiritually. I found friends I hadn’t seen in years coming to help. One was involved in energy healing with vitamins and herbs. Within two years, I threw all my medications in the garbage and things started moving. I started eating right, breathing right, drinking right, giving my body what it needs and not what it craved.
It’s been over 16 years now and I have not taken a drug or a medication and have never been sick. They can’t find the brain tumor and the MS is 80 percent healed. I know what it feels like to hurt and suffer and what extreme humiliation feels like. I praise God for his wonderful grace and healing.
Today I spoke with Roy and he told me he has no regrets over his past. God is working in his life, and now he ministers to many in Nursing Homes. He is a preacher and motivational speaker, sharing how God has worked in his life… helping others not lose hope.
Roy found in Jesus what Paul found, “…we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that our suffering produces endurance and endurance character, and character, hope” (Romans 5:3-4).
Don’t be glad when suffering comes. Don’t look on suffering as just a part of this wicked world. Don’t wish life would soon be over or those who prosper would come to harm. Don’t move to another town to avoid it. Just understand that when suffering comes, it can be the greatest hidden blessing of life… a turning point to something better. To understand it: be patient (James 1:2-4) – Trust the God who loves you (Romans 5:8-9).
