Have you seen Breakthrough yet?
It’s the miraculous story of a boy that fell through an icy lake, was pronounced dead and is now alive and has a major motion picture based on this event.
All because his adoptive mom, Joyce Smith (played by Chrissy Metz, This Is Us) prayed boldly.
Joyce received the call all parents dread and some strong, faithful prayers and wailing cries later, the Smith family’s life was forever changed. Joyce cried out to the Holy Spirit and the Spirit responded through a pulse in John and a newly beeping monitor.
Today, John Smith is 18 years old with a dream to become a pastor someday.
This wasn’t the dream he had before he fell into the icy waters. John was a young boy with a struggling faith and carried a hurt heart from feeling unwanted by his birth mom.
I sat down with “The Real” John Smith and was privileged to hear him share his heart on the journey he has taken to not only heal but prosper in his faith life through forgiveness.
To say that I was inspired by his words would be an understatement. As I sat and listened to this 18 yr. old going on 40, I was taught a lesson I didn’t expect to hear that day.
