Q. You’ve always been a spiritual man. Can you share a bit about how your faith has gotten you through this challenge?
A. I’ll admit that I lost my faith when I got injured. I wasn’t mad at God. But I kind of questioned Him in a way. I just couldn’t understand how, after everything I had been through in my life, why would this happen now? I still don’t know, but He’s still teaching me, and He restored my faith and I will never lose it again. He taught me, ‘Just love Me, and work hard.’ It’s crazy because I got the Bible verse 1 Peter 5:6 tatted on me before camp which says, "Humble yourself upon God and in due time He shall exalt you." So I kind of took that and said, ‘Wow, I kind of jinxed myself,’ but at the same time, I learned a lot from the experience.
Q. What did you learn?
A. I became a man and it taught me that I could overcome anything if I have faith and if I work at it. I’m still overcoming this injury — it’s not done at all. Bu t this experience has definitely taught me not to lose my faith in God because He definitely has a plan for my and will always be there for me.
