Meet Kieran from Carlsbad, CA.
The one word that best describes Kieran's life today is "Impactful." The reason why Kieran chose this word is because God is impacting his life.
If Kieran could change one thing in the world, he would "Bring more light into the world." The way he would go about making this change is by showing peoples God's love.
One year from today, Kieran would like to see growth in his relationships.
If Kieran's life were a movie it would be about his relationship with God and how he was miraculously healed from a failed foot surgery that put him in a wheelchair for 4 years. The title of his movie would be called "FEET."
I met Kieran this morning as I was running on the beach. I made a mental note of Kieran as passed by him and told myself I would stop and talk to him if he was still there on my way back home.
Sure enough, 30 minutes later Kieran was sitting on the beach writing in his journal, which I thought was his homework. I asked him if he was doing homework and he said "no, I'm spending time with God." His bible was on the sand in front of him and his journal and pen was in his hand.
I asked Kieran if he would be interested in sharing his story and being our one person for the day, which he gladly accepted. I made some assumptions that just because he lives in Carlsbad that he is a surfer, but he is not. That question led me ask Kieran why he chose the title "FEET" for his movie and he shared the reason behind this title.
Several years ago, Kieran had a low risk surgery to repair his flat feet. The surgery did not go well and he ended up in a wheelchair for 4 years. He shared with me that he had very little faith that God could or would heal him.
Just over 3 years ago, Kieran was at a church retreat and one of the counselors prayed for Kieran and encouraged him to trust God and fully believe he can be healed. That was a turning point in Kieran's life and in his relationship with God. He was healed and has been able to get up out of the wheelchair and walk again.
Kieran is only 19 years old but has the faith of a man beyond his years. I noticed his tattoo on his foot Romans 10:15 “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
I shared with Kieran that my wife has a bone spur on the bottom of her foot and she hasn't been able to walk for several weeks. I asked Kieran to pray for Kimberly's foot so he stopped right there on the beach and put his hand on my shoulder and prayed for my wife. Wow, pretty powerful! I'm believing Kimberly's foot will be healed and she'll be back on her feet again.
I continue to be amazed by the love, care and concern people have for each other. It seems like the closer I get to the end of the year of meeting one new person a day, I'm having these supernatural encounters with spectacular people!
Thank you Kieran for your love, care, concern and prayers for my wife and for sharing your story with our community.
