My name is Scott R. Laney. My life has been very challenging since I was hit by a car going 60 MPH. It happened on KGB road on February 7, 2014. I sustained multiple breaks in both legs, my left shoulder and my skull, and died for thirty minutes. When I came back to life, all I had seen was Jesus and He healed me from death! About 4 months later, my physical therapy said that I could not walk for 2 to 5 years, but with the power of prayer I was able to in one year. I also work out four days a week, and do volunteer work one day a week. My mom one day was wondering when the Sabbath was, the 4th commandment of the Bible. So she asked me if I knew and I didn't, so we youtubed it.
On YouTube, it told us the history of the Sabbath and that man changed God’s law to Sunday. The Sabbath is from Friday and Saturday, sundown to sundown. Here is a link that you can check out: www.sabbathtruth.com/faq/advanced-topics/7-facts-about-the-seventh-day. After my mom and I found this out, we started to try and find a church that celebrated the Sabbath. We couldn't find one that we thought was good to go to.
In the Bible it says that, "If ye love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15. So my mother and I started going out to my grandmother’s house for Sabbath and just praising God, playing games together and reading the Bible. We use to feel like we were always running behind. Now that we observe the Sabbath, we have felt so blessed and thankful. Here is a website you can go to see what time the Sabbath begins in your area:
My mother and I also found out in the Bible, Matthew 5:19 "Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
My old church, Church on the Rock, made a YouTube video of me and my story. Scott Laney is all you have to look up to see it. My whole family and I were told after my brain injury that I could never learn easy ever again. Two years later with the help from Jesus, I received my GED and am now in college! I am attending and studying medical coding and billing, and am doing well!
