That is a picture of my hero and friend Harmon Killebrew, Hall of Fame baseball player. Harmon passed away on May 17th, 2011 of cancer. I have the first letter that he sent me after I had written him when I was a little boy back in Minnesota. I had something so special happen to me yesterday. I was reading the article that I had on my facebook page about Harmon announcing that he was dying of cancer and was going into hospice and spending his final days at home with friends and family. I read that and God said call Harmon’s wife! So I went to the phone and dialed directory assistance and got Harmon’s widow, Nita on the phone! We had a wonderful conversation for almost 45 minutes!!!!!!!!! She is a women of God as Harmon was a man of God. She shared with me the final days of Harmon’s life and the friends that came to visit before he passed onto heaven. I was blessed to have Harmon on my radio show twice, once for 2 hours!!!! I grew up communicating with this man for several years and watching him play baseball. I told Nita the most “anger” I ever saw come out of Harmon was when he was on TV months before he died telling player’s to stop using steroids and clean up the game. Harmon set an example for all of us with his testimony, his actions on and off the field of Godly excellence. Now at one time Harmon went through great personal struggles, divorce, financial and health, but God restored him. Through those struggles Harmon taught many that we may be down and out, but God can restore us. God is the only one that can truly restore us. Why did God have me pick up the phone and call Nita Killebrew? I never ask God why. I just do it, you would have thought from listening to that conversation that Nita and I knew each other for years! It was a Godly opportunity to share our love for Harmon. Nita said that after Harmon passed on and when she went to the Hall-of-Fame induction the next year, she went to the Sunday Church service at the Hall-of-Fame and in came Reggie Jackson! Nita said that he gave the most wonderful testimony how Jesus changed his life! Here’s the real deal folks once again: Jesus is the only one that can truly change lives. Reggie used to be an EGO maniac, a mean person, full of anger. But God healed him. It is such a blessing to be in tuned to God and have Him tell you what to do, like call Nita Killebrew. By the way for you Minnesota Twins fans, can you tell me who hit the first inside-the-park homerun at the Old Met? Yes, it was Harmon! Who would have thought? You didn’t know Harmon could run so fast did you!!!!! LOL LOL Nita made sure to tell me that, it was one of the final laughs Harmon had with Nita and Twins great Tony Oliva before passing through the gates of heaven.
This verse comes to mind when I think of Harmon:
The discretion of a man makes him slow to anger, and his glory is to overlook a transgression. Proverbs 19:11
Many of us get into real trouble in our relationships because we insist on being “right” We demand that everyone see things are way; and because we refuse to overlook a transgression, we end up alienating our friends and family.
I don’t know if Harmon ever got thrown out of a game by an umpire? Do you? He showed great patients on and off the field, a great testimony too many of us. My prayer this day is that this world have more role models like Harmon. More role models who have God as their ultimate hero, role model. Harmon was part of my growing up, part of the foundation of my life, and for that I am eternally grateful.
By the way, I experienced my Mom passing of cancer and the toll that Chemo took on her. Mom finally decided, Lord take me home, this Chemo is awful…………
Please Read this post at FGGAM: On how many Doctor’s are stopping Chemo as treatment:
This morning we pray over all who are being and who have been touched by cancer, we pray healing over all. My friend Rick, we pray healing over you! We love you buddy!
It is so on my heart to tell you all this morning that Sharon and I love you all so much! God Bless you and yours forever and ever!
June 28, 2013. You must read such stories with great faith as this one about Publius’ father being healed on the island of Malta. When the other islanders who had any disease were also healed, you know God is establishing Paul not only as a healer but also as an apostle of Jesus. Paul declared as present the Kingdom of God. You could see the Kingdom of God as being like a suitcase. Paul opens the suitcase and that power and love saves, heals and delivers. It is simple and powerful. This how masses come to Christ in salvation.
Acts 28:8-9 (NASB) “And it happened that the father of Publius was lying in bed afflicted with recurrent fever and dysentery; and Paul went in to see him and after he had prayed, he laid his hands on him and healed him. After this had happened, the rest of the people on the island who had diseases were coming to him and getting cured.” Ras Robinson
June 28, 2013. The water was poisoned with negative words long ago. It continued with more condemnation from time to time. Then someone hearing the poisonous words and also tasting the bitter water added their own negative words. Now the water is bitter for many. Precious one, sometimes you are wrong. It’s not always someone else being wrong. You need My cross, My tree, to make it sweet again. If you will humble yourself and obey Me, I will sweeten the water once again. Work with Me. Speak words of kindness and blessings.
Exodus 15:23-25 (NASB) “When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah. So the people grumbled at Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” Then he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree; and he threw it into the waters, and the waters became sweet.” Bev Robinson

June 28, 2013. Turn loose. Instead of holding onto things which are so precious to you, hold them very lightly. Many before you have been robbed of greater blessings from Me because they were unable to relinquish their so called ownership of something. Reflect on the paths you’ve taken to get where you are right now. Could you have gotten where you are any sooner? Perhaps? Let go and let God have control. Perform an intensive heart check upon yourself. Strike down any inkling of idolatry I reveal to you. Respond. Repent. Release. Reign.
John 3:30 (NASB) “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Kevin Robinson
