The Lord has overwhelmed me with his grace and mercy and I hope to tell others of His greatness.
My name is Lisa (Schubert) Goad. I grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of VA with 2 brothers and parents who taught me the truth of the Gospel of Christ from a young age. I met my wonderful husband, Keith, in college and shortly after we were married (2002), I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), a form of Dysautonomia. The Lord has been so faithful to us during this battle with a chronic illness – humbling us and giving us hope and peace. In the spring of 2009 the Lord graciously blessed us with a daughter, Lillian, who brings us lots of joy. Becoming a mom, although extremely challenging, has been one of the greatest blessings of my life. In 2010 the Lord called us to a very loving church where Keith is the senior pastor. After a very difficult miscarriage in the summer of 2012, the Lord so graciously granted us a 2nd daughter this year (2013). Sweet Ivy arrived in July and we are so grateful! I pray that the Lord will use me to encourage others – especially those facing trials/difficulties.
“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
