Dad died from a brain tumor when I was 2...my sweet brother died from the same disease I have when he was 9. So much pain to start life out with but being saved at 10, the journey with Christ began. The flip of a coin spared me my brother's fate and so now I live with the other side of the coin. ALD has taken so much from me but as a result music was given to me shortly after the diagnosis. My life was saved as a result and I have had songs rained down upon me and a relationship with the SPIRIT like I never knew existed. Every day is a battle...with stress, pain, betrayal, and a broken heart. My daughter Grace is an absolute inspiration to keep fighting and for a 6 year old, she blows me away with how she helps and looks out for me. I lead worship at Renew in SC and am in the process of recording what appears to be my last work unless I am healed. I have songs and videos if u want to check them out. It's no Tomlin, but it is denny denham. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v&#38#38#38#38#616eFW85RqNR8 http://www.reverbnation.com/dennydenham http://www.facebook.com/pages/profile/113234686539 http://www.indieheaven.com/artist_main.php?id&#38#38#38#38#6169269
Psalm 118:14 The LORD is my strength and my song he has become my salvation.
WRITE ON THIS PERSON'S WALL
Sarah32Hey Denny, it`s so good to see you on here again! I`m sorry I didn`t see your earlier posts on your wall. If a message isn`t posted on my wall, I usually don`t see it until moments like this- when I visit that person`s page.;) Thank you for your encouraging words to me, Denny.<3 You`re a sweetheart for posting what you did. As far as my health is concerned, I still have a nasty condition hanging on, which is why my heart overflowed with prayer on your behalf from the beginning, Denny. I would never want anyone to be in the place I am at. Because I know sickness all too well, it makes my heart melt for you, and others out there who are struggling to feel some semblance of normalcy. I`m still praying for complete healing for you, buddy!<3 I`m praying for a breakthrough for health and in your personal life, and I`m going to stand with you, believing that God loves you, His son so much that He STILL has an amazing plan for your life. God loves you as much as He loved David in the Bible, Paul, His fellow disciples, Moses....and the list continues on! "See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me." Jesus still has the name "Denny" inscribed on His hand, just as He did with the greats of Bible. You are never forgotten, Denny! I tell you this because I know when your slumped over in sickness, it can truly feel like you`re forgotten. But from your sister in Christ, I want to tell you, you are not. God is still in control over this situation, taking your body under His protective wings. <3

Sarah32I havent seen you on here in awhile, so I thought I would drop by your profile page and say "hi." Hi. :D I just read your bio and it brought tears to my eyes, Denny!! I hate that you have to suffer so much, and I hate that the suffering had to begin at such an early age for you, dear heart. Know that even though your prayer request was a couple of weeks ago, I still cannot separate you from my mind, heart, and prayers. Even though you feel forgotten, Denny, know you are NEVER EVER forgotten. I have a special place in my heart reserved for those who are desperate, and you are right there, Denny. You are not forgotten by me, and I know you are not forgotten by your Savior, even if you feel you are. Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands." I know it may feel like youre betrayed by even Your Lord, and I know it may even be painful to read the promises of God when all of His promises seem to have faded away...But yet I know He speaks the Truth. I know He loves you more than a mother, more than a father, more than a best friend. I dont know why this is happening to You, Denny. But I know the Truth still remains and rings true for your life, brother! Im still FERVENTLY praying for a miracle healing whether by an instantaneous touch from God or a speedy medical advancement that can give you treatment to make you well and to make your body feel whole. But remember Denny, whatever happens, this life is so, so short!! Its like one tiny grain of sand dotted on sandy beach...its so small compared to the grand scheme of things. Even if I live a longer life than you, its not too much longer when you think of eternity. Those years seem so minuscule!! Whenever heaven comes, I cannot wait to see you up there with your sweet crown from all the amazing things youve done for God, and playing your keyboard still....with a healthy body. :) Ill give you a big ol hug when that day comes!! Even with that said, Im still interceding on your behalf, Denny, for health and wellness, and a complete cleaning out of Gods Temple- your body. LOVE YOU, BROTHER!!!<3<3And Ill fight along side of you in any way I can!!!<3

Courtneyto stop but nothing gives you the courtesy to do so... Well Im going to tell you something Denny, and I mean it with all of my heart and soul.. You... you are the strongest man Ive ever known.. Yes, the pain.. withering away to nothing.. like youve never existed.. The battle youre facing is one of the hardest battles ever in my opinion.. But NONE OF THIS MEANS THAT YOU ARE WEAK AND HELPLESS OR FAITHLESS!!! YOU are a beautifully hand crafted soul with a body that God created and gave you.. His two hands.. for His son.. Denny no matter today.. tomorrow.. the next day.. HE IS THERE IN THE DARKEST SHADOWS OF DEATH.. Especially for you... When I tell you this, you may just think Im crazy.. But I know for a fact that everything I say, God is whispering into my ear.. I feel Him more than Ive ever felt Him at this moment.. Using me to give comfort and rejoice to His faithful son... Something is telling me to tell you not to give up.. Not for one minute.. You may feel all of this suffering, but it is not and will never be in vein.. Everything you have ever done for our Father is in his memory.. The faithfulnes the words you pray to Him.. Your life stories of pain and regret, joy and thankfulness is in His heart.. You are blessed with a curse.. Because you are the stronger one and this is the biggest trial in your life to test everything in you. Your faith and everything youve ever believed in needs to come outt!! Give everything to Him.. Give all of this hatred, confusion, pain, and suffering to our Father.!!! I know its so hard to do after

CourtneyMy Dearest Denny.. your wall post left me in tears as well last night when I read it.. My friend thought something was so wrong because I never cry even in the worst situations.. But last night I did.. You amaze me and make me feel something so intensive that I cant describe it. Like at that moment in time.. I was meant to be there.. My heart has reached out to a lot of people, but nothing like this.. Its like I feel all of your pain and sorrow with the wrenching cry of plea for all of this to just stop.. When I talk to you, the words just flow because I mean everything I say. My brain starts talking so fast and its hard to keep up with it at times, I need you to know... theres always going to be that question and fear about tomorrow.. What its going to bring, and the depression of just wanting to close your eyes just to end it.. to give up and not even care about the hours that go by, turning into freezing day after day.. Falling on your knees screaming outloud as your head touches the floor, crying so hard its like youve lost everything.. all of it.. That you cant get up and you want to refuse because its not even a question anymore.. Every breath you take, its in despair and heartache.. You dont feel sane nor close to our Father, which is whom youve served for a long time.. You ask why.... you scream it.. but yet...silence answers.. This my friend, is the worst feeling you could ever feel in the world. Like your soul is turning inside out and you want everything

CourtneyYou have the weight of the world on your shoulders it looks like.. My heart reaches out to you so much.. This is the time when you need the Lord our Father in your life more than ever to lift these weights from your broken down body into his strength.. I pray to the Dear Lord that you will pray to let him take all of this away from you or help you ease the pain and depression you have entered into in this life.. For Him to just wrap you up in His loving and caring arms, holding you so tightly, never letting go of His child that was made from His own two hands.. My dear, you are not alone in this.. NEVER think youre EVER alone because thats the LEAST of your worries to think about. You have your brothers and sisters like me that care for you deeply and can see the pain with every word you have typed.. He is there... He feels your pain and knows what youre going through my brother.. Please I beg you to NEVER give up.. This is probably one of the hardest trials youve ever had in your lifetime.. And this is the time to show your faith more than ever.. Dont look down.. Dont give up.. Pray to God and He will be there.. You are in my every waking thought, my heart, and most importantly, my prayers.. We all love you Denny.. Never forget that.
To all my prayer warriors out there, I am starting an experimental medication Friday that may help with the symptoms of my disease and possibly even help damaged nerves in my spinal cord to start refiring and communicating with my brain. Pray for a miracle and for peace if it is not....
I have begun to climb out the darkness the enemy has kept me drowning in. I now know there is nothing worse than to live and be consumed by fear and brokeness. I have been guided through this nightmare by the quiet whispers of the SPIRIT...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your prayers , my special friends. As a special bonus I am about to start an experimental medication that could be a game changer for me...please pray that GOD has something special in store for me physically. HE has already healed my life spiritually and emotionally. I love you guys, please know that.
Original Prayer Request (posted 2 Years Ago): My spiritual journey has led me to the darkest valley I have ever known. I have an incurable disease that is slowly causing me to dissapear. My marriage is in shambles and my mother in law who is not saved has stage 3 breast cancer. Then I have to sit in front of people every Sunday and lead worship while my heart is being ripped out of my chest. My eyes are fixed on God , but I just dont know how much longer I can run this race.
