The Gift of Cerebral Palsy

"Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!" - Psalm 95:1

Even now as I type these words one of the best worship leaders I've ever been led in worship by comes to mind. He's never sang on a stage, played skillfully on an instrument, nor held a mic in his hand. He sits in the audience every Sunday. Confined to his wheel chair, that can barley keep him tied down, he belts out every lyric to every singe song. To the worldly eye and ear his voice sounds like a man in pain and anguish that has no hope, but to the Christ follower it is one of the most moving sounds they've ever heard. Especially when you see who the joyful noise is coming from. His countenance screams "I'm loved by Jesus". His song exalts the rock of his salvation, and his life is lived out daily with purpose.

My friends name is Roger.

He has Cerebral Palsy.

In the link below you will see and hear him share in his own words why he "chooses to worship Christ not in spite of his disability, but because of it".
