Overcomer!

When I think on a man named "Tim Rogers", I say, wow, there was a overcomer. (overcomer-to take over, to over take,sin.)
Romans 12:21 be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good Tim spent a better part of his life listening to peoples complaints and life's sorrows, always helping them and praying for them. He would read out aloud to better the knowledge in a home and increase a hunger for the word of G-d.He would become a Bible College teacher for 9 years.(Grace and Glory Bible College) I would watch Him hand out money, and sometimes go with out lunch himself. My memories of him reading the Word, how he would fast and pray and see the hand of G-d move so powerfully in his life! How the scripture states "bare ye one another's burden". He would grieve over someone's burden. This all from a young man who had a fatal accident as young man in the Navy ,He would come back a Quadrapalegic. Bound to a wheel chair for 35 years.
Now on His birthday , I celebrate a life of sacrifice, a life of love, giving, sharing and waiting . He endured until his end here on earth Happy Birthday in heaven I love you Timmy..
