Many times, other people’s lives and successes are hinged on ours and we do not know. For them to live and thrive, we need to ‘get up’ and take charge of our own lives.
In this episode, John Arroyo, a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, and a former Green Beret soldier, tells us how he was shot by a soldier and the .45 bullet went through his jugular into his voice box, into his Adam’s apple, and into his right shoulder. As he lay on the floor thinking “this is where I die”, he distinctly heard a voice that said “John, get up, or your wife would die.”
John not only triumphed over death, his life took a different turn from then on, and today, he is using his scars to let people know that they too can ‘get up’ one more time.
