A wonderful blogging friend has died. Bill Sweeney, the most inspirational person I have ever known. I met Bill through his blog, Unshakable Hope.
Since I got the news this morning, I have been both sad and happy. Sad, because I miss him. Happy, because Bill’s very long battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is finally over.
On the night of December 24, I left this message for Bill on his last post, which he had written earlier that day:
I shared this post on my blog, brother Bill, and I asked for prayers for you and your family. You are the most inspirational person I have ever known. I am praying for our Abba Father’s perfect, merciful, loving will to be done in your life. I have gone through some horrors in my own life, and I was diagnosed with severe PTSD as a result. However — God has brought so much GOOD out of even the worst of my horrors, that I have learned to trust Him, no matter what. Soon, Bill Sweeney, you will be fully, gloriously healed. Whether in this life or in the next eternal life. Soon. That is my prayer in Jesus’ name for you. ❤❤❤
