You Can with the Plan

I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13

Within “Hearts on Fire”, the point made is that it makes all the difference when we believe our redeemer lives and we follow the plan. If a difficult past has been faced, it can be set aside and we can enthusiastically build a brighter future together.

Take inspiration from the video Team Hoyt – A Father’s Love (My Redeemer Lives). The video is based on a remarkable true story of a father’s devotion to his wheelchair-bound son and how their bond inspired millions of people worldwide.

Born a spastic quadriplegic, Rick Hoyt was written off by numerous doctors. They advised his parents, Dick and Judy, to put their firstborn son in an institution but his parents were determined to give their son every opportunity that “normal” kids had.

Then one day Rick asked his dad to enter a charity race and Rick wanted to run too so his dad would have to push his wheelchair while running the race. They were determined to overcome every obstacle that was put in their way and finished the race.

Then over the years, they ran over one thousand races as Dick Hoyt pushed Rick’s wheelchair, including marathons and triathlons. They continued to inspire millions embodying their trademark motto of “Yes, you can.”
