An article in The Philippine Daily Inquirer was written about Terry Wallis. The last time he was conscious about the world around him, Ronald Reagan was president, Bill Clinton was his state's governor, the Soviet Union was the United States' enemy and the World Trade Center stood tall.
After 19 years in coma because of a car accident that left him a quadriplegic, Terry Wallis utters his first words: Mom. Pepsi. Milk. Now at 39, he, in the last 2 weeks, realized that Reagan was no longer president, the cold war is over and a the World Trade Center is no longer there.
I think about that and can't help but say, "Wow." Nineteen years have passed - that's 988 weeks, 6935 days, 166,440 hours.
We don't have that much time with our kids. In a few years, they will launch out to the world and hope to hit their mark in God. We cannot let them stay in a "spiritual coma" and expect them to wake up and hit their mark.
God bless you as you disciple, train and launch the next generation of world changers!
