Inner Visions And Inspirations With Mr. David Davis

November 18, 2023

Mr. Davis is a man who is paralyzed from his chest down. But he wasn't always this way. He once worked as an engineer coding robotics for surgeons and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 39. Despite a series of unfortunate events, David has developed a unique insight, wisdom, plus faith in God that will provide our readers hope when feeling hopeless. Love when feeling loveless. And strength when feeling weak. Mr. Davis will provide relaunched Echo readers with weekly shares that we encourage you to support by reading his gentle memoirs and thoughts of inspiration.

Now, without any further ado, the relaunched Echo, N.J.'s oldest Black-owned newspaper, presents

"Inner Visions And Inspirations With Mr. David Davis" of Monmouth County, New Jersey.

God is with us

"God is with us. Not just as a bystander but as a Protector who ensures that life's floods and fires do not overpower us. This isn't mere comfort; it's transformational. It turns every challenge into a canvas where God's grace paints vivid strokes of resilience, hope, and growth.

As we go through today, keep this in mind: we're not facing anything alone. Our trials are God's territory for miracles, and His steadfast presence is our ultimate source of strength and peace."

Author Mr. David Davis


"Today, I was thinking about how ugly the olive tree is.... It is not a tree which would at once strike the beholder with admiration, like some giant oak or lofty elm; nor charm him with its elegance, like a weeping willow; nor astonish us with its grandeur, like a cedar of Lebanon. In order to perceive its beauty, you must linger a little while. You must look and look again; and then, if you do not, at last, feel a deep respect for the olive and a quiet delight in its beauty, it must be because you are not of a thoughtful spirit or else. After all, we have little poetry in our soul. The more familiar you become with the olive tree, the more you will take pleasure in it. And olives are such a needed food for our diets. Studies show that they are good for the heart and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer. The healthy fats in olives are extracted to produce olive oil, one of the key components of the incredibly healthy Mediterranean diet. But what an ugly tree! That is the thoughts when we first approach a person with diseases, cancer, MS, lupus, leprosy, etc. Right away, we prejudge and distance ourselves. Not knowing right away the repour, the compassion, the agape love that flows like the olive oil. Look, and look again; and perhaps, in time, you will come to admire as an excellence what you now think to be a defect."
