In the book, Danica -- Crossing the Line, by Indy car driver Danica Patrick, Danica explains that if you really want something and you work hard at it, you can succeed.

A friend told me the other day about a man who had been called to China 20 years ago but has never gone. If you have a calling from God, and if you work hard at it, it WILL come to pass: in one way or another.

Indy car driver, Danica Patrick, also describes how her father taught her to have fun. That’s what your calling in Messiah Jesus is about: Having fun, enjoying your work for God.

Yes, suffering is a part of our calling.

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed to his death.” (Philippians 3:10)

“Because it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in him, but also to suffer on his behalf.”  (Philippians 1:29)


I was arrested while preaching one time, but nine (9) people were saved in the jail. While I was out of jail awaiting my court trial I was stabbed in the abdomen by two men. I had several holes I my intestines and would have died but God sent a man I did NOT know - and who did NOT know me - to pray for me, and I was miraculously healed.

I had several tubes running in and out of my body and, also, a nurse stationed full time at my bedside. A man who was in a laundromat in Los Angeles heard about me being stabbed. He did NOT know me, but the Holy Spirit told him to go to the hospital and pray for me. At that time there were 2,500 rooms in the hospital and I was on the 9th floor in the 9300 ward.

I remember coming to consciousness and it was like God and the Holy Angels were on my right side, and the devil and demons were on my left side trying to suck my soul out of my body. I was tempted just to let go and die, enjoying the drugs flowing through me that were helping to subside my suffering. I will never forget these words: God said to me, “Get command of this situation.” I knew what He meant. I had to get command of the situation mentally. I prayed and said, “God, I know you can heal long distance, but if you will just send someone to lay hands on me and pray for me, I KNOW I will be healed."

A while later – I do not know if it was minutes or hours – a man came walking into the ward (where there were about 15 people who had been shot, stabbed, attacked). I was the worst case there and, as I mentioned, was the only one with a nurse stationed by my side full time. The man came to my bed and said these EXACT words: “Brother, the LORD Jesus raised me from the dead one time, and He has sent me to pray for you that you might be healed.” Then he laid his hands upon my head and said, “LORD Jesus, heal my brother.” After that, he turned around and walked out.

I walked out a few days later after the LORD had saved eleven (11) people in that hospital ward (including nurses).

If you want to know the POWER of Messiah’s resurrection, you have to experience His suffering. I had, previous to the time I was stabbed, preached a lot on resurrection, but NEVER about suffering.

I do NOT want suffering. Maybe some people do. However, the Word of God teaches that it is a part of our organic union with Messiah so that we may KNOW Him and the POWER of His RESURRECTION.

Work hard to attain the ministry you desire: the work God Almighty has placed in your heart. As Danica Patrick mentioned in her book, enjoy what you do. Real estate tycoon, Donald Trump, says the same thing: enjoy what you do.

You will enjoy the ministry God has given you … even through trial and suffering. The JOY of the LORD is your strength.

If you can NOT go through suffering and trial and hardship by God’s grace and through the POWER of His resurrection, then you can NOT progress to the next step of love, productivity, and forgiveness. I have long ago forgiven the men who stabbed me. After they stabbed me they even held the knife to my face with the blood upon it so I could see it. I prayed for them right there and put two little red Bibles in their hands. They are probably preachers now.

I have a large scar where I was stabbed, but it has been 39 years and two weeks since then. I am still alive serving God, and having FUN … experiencing JOY … serving the ONE Who called me into His service.

I started this podcast talking about my favorite female race car driver, Danica Patrick. Another female race car driver, Lyn St. James, winner of the 1992 Indy 500 Rookie of the Year, and on the Board of Trustees where I previously obtained my Engineering degree, has an impressive record as follows:

• 1992 Indianapolis 500 Rookie of The Year (first woman to win)

• 7 Indianapolis 500 starts in 9 years, including 6 consecutive starts (1992 - 1997)

• Highest qualifying: 6th in 1994 Indy 500; highest finish – 11th in 1992

• Set world record on closed-course for women reaching 225.722 mph during the 1995 Indy 500 qualification weekend

• Oldest driver in the field (age 53) at the 2000 Indy 500

• Raced in 15 Indy races including CART Championship and Indy Racing League.

• Scored 2 Top-10 qualifying spots; 1 Top-10 Finish

• Held 31 international and national closed circuit speed records over a 20-year period.

• Raced twice (1989, 1991) in the biggest endurance race in the world; the 24 Hours of Le Mans (France)

• Two wins in the 24 Hours of Daytona (winning GTO Team Driver in 1987 and 1990)

• Raced (9 times) in the famous 12 Hours of Sebring Endurance race (winning GTO Team driver in 1990)

• Raced in 53 SCCA Trans-Am races with 7 Top-5 finishes and raced in 62 IMSA GT races with 6 wins and 17 Top-5 and 37 Top-10 finishes

• Only woman to win an IMSA GT race driving solo (1985 Watkins Glen)

• Raced in the legendary Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival & Festival Meetings in England in 2001, 2005, 2006, and 2007

As a motivational speaker to corporate and government leaders, Lyn St. James teaches people this axiom: “Find out what makes you tick.”

Find out what makes you tick. Be willing to endure trial and suffering. Have fun. Experience JOY through the RESURRECTION POWER of the Messiah.


Just as Danica Patrick and Lyn St. James have broken through and set blazing paths in a man’s sport – high speed international auto racing - so in a parallel sense, God is getting ready to use women to break through in POWERFUL apostolic and prophetic ministry. Some of these will be women in the Middle East: in the ISLAMIC world. NO one will be able to kill them … they will have angelic protection until the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob calls them home, or until Yeshua returns. They will be deliverers as Deborah was in Israel.

Your friend,
