My name is Will Boggs IV. I am a minister of the Gospel. I have a passion driven by compassion to awaken a generation from the spiritual slumber and coma many find themselves in. I have been married to Mariah Boggs since May 2016, and we have two beautiful daughters Elizabeth and Elianna. Mariah and I met at Liberty University and she served with her family as missionaries to South Africa with the IMB for 8 years. I am studying at Fuller Theological Seminary.
"And when I passed by you and saw you struggling in your own blood, I said to you in your blood, 'Live!' Yes, I said to you in your blood, 'Live!'"
- Ezekiel 16:6 NKJV
About the Book
We all want to know why we are here on this earth. I wasn’t the exception. On Highway 301 the God of miracles intercepted my plans, changed the course of my life, and gave me a radically different perspective and purpose. On a rainy night, while traveling with my family for Spring Break, I was hit by a tractor trailer and pronounced dead at the scene. This accident changed my life, my perspective, my purpose, and my destiny, but I wouldn’t be able to see that for a long time.
THEY SAID I WAS DEAD, BUT THEY WERE WRONG!
At the trauma unit, they called me John Doe because they didn’t know my name, but God knew my name! The surgeon said that my brain stem was severed, and that I wouldn’t/couldn’t survive, but I was still connected to my creator. The medical team had no plan, but God was already working out His perfect plan. I was broken into pieces, but the Master Builder was the only one who could put me back together again. When Jesus was on earth, he often gathered food, blessed it, broke it, and then gave it to feed the crowds. He did this with my life as well!
God had blessed me with a wonderful family and a happy life. Then he broke it, and for many months doctors told my family that I was not “alive” in the truest sense. But I was more alive than ever! When I came out of the coma, I listened to Banning Liebscher talk about how he was sending out a new breed of revivalists worldwide. After listening to his podcast repeatedly, I got on my knees—my heart burning to reach the next generation with the message of the Gospel and the power of God’s love. Now I was ready to be given.
This is a story of family unity, perseverance, supernatural power, and unwavering faith. No matter where you have been, what you have done to others, or what has been done to you; God can breathe life back into the broken, lifeless areas of your life. The same love of God that healed my paralyzed body is there to heal your paralyzed heart, your broken family, your sick relationships, and whatever “hopeless” situation you find yourself in. Your faith may be in a coma, but God has big plans for you—for hope and healing. He has big plans for those you love who may seem dead. The God of miracles is waiting.
