Diario de Corey Stingley
Absent from the Body, is to be Present with the Lord
Escrito el Jan 7, 2013 2:10pmNow that God has provided us all the grace that is always sufficient to lay our Beloved Corey to rest and release him from this physical realm, into the Heavenly Glory of God, the Stingley Family would like to thank every person that has chosen to walk this portion of our life Journey with us.
It is our prayer and we trust that it is the Will of God that we will all grow in Grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Over the past several weeks, we have knit our Hearts together in Prayer, asking God to perform a Miracle that the World has never seen and Heal Corey from his sever brain injury, restore his health and return him to the bright and energetic young man that touched our lives in so many ways.
Well, in Gods Soverign Wisdom, He decided not to grant us all our specific prayer request but He has seen fit to show us a different Miracle in changing the minds, hearts and lives of all of us in more ways than we can begin to imagine.
The Word of God tells us "They That Wait Upon The Lord Shall Renew Their Strength, They Shall Mount Up With Wings Like Eagles, They Shall Run And Not Grow Weary, They Shall Walk And Not Faint".
The Stingley Family, would like to encourage all of our extended Family and Friends to be patient and wait on the Lord, to watch and see if He will not open up the windows of Heaven and pour out on all of us a Blessing, Strengthen our Faith and Trust in Him, as He executes His Justice on those individuals who have wronged us. We would also encourage each of us to offer up "Forgiveness" to the (3) adult men who took the life of Corey by their unnecessary actions. Forgiveness as an Action and Attribute is something from the heart of God and provided for each of us, to allow God to adequately Punish those who have wronged us in causing the Death of our Beloved Corey.
Forgiveness for these men does not excuse what they have done, nor does it relieve them from paying the penalty for their Crime. Forgiveness, allows those of us who can genuinely offer it to release the Pain, Anger and Bitterness that could have a negative effect on our own individual lives.
As Corey's Pop, I specifically ask you all to join me in this action of forgiveness and to avoiding doing anything out of anger or emotion that will Dishonor God, Tarnish our Memory of Corey or Disrupt the process that needs to take place and be completed and these (3) adult men brought to Justice.
Please know that our Miracle is happening right before our eyes and we are all growing stronger everyday and Corey is being allowed by God Himself, to observe the Impact his life and sacrifice for the Plan of God is having and will continue to have as we keep pouring Love and Life into each other so that we can all move forward and make a difference in the lives we encounter, because we have surrendered to the Perfect Will of God and Trust In Him, to use us all to make this world a better place no matter where God may lead us into our future.
Wait upon the Lord and see Him Complete the Work that He has selected us all to be a part of in His Great and Amazing Plan for Mankind.
Be Blessed and Praise the Holy Name of God with us, as we give Him the Glory, Great Things He has and is doing.
In Christ, the Stingley Family

Corey up in Glory with his Savior
Escrito el Dec 30, 2012 5:07pmTo all our Family and Friends,
The Stingley Family would like to thank you all for your love, prayers and support during this life changing trial that God decided to bring us to and carry us through.
His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts, He is a Soverign God, high and lifted up, seated on His Throne and in our hearts, He is God alone.
It is our prayer that God will use this tragic incident to continue changing all of our lives and Glorify His Holy name as He reveals His will to us and shows Himself Strong, while doing His work through us.
Corey was removed from the life support equipment yesterday around 1pm and went home to be with the Lord at approximately 6:20 pm Saturday evening. Corey did not suffer in his passing. The strength in his God given body remained until the end and we will always remember the Strong Young Man who touched so many lives with his smile and charm.
Corey was a special young man with many gifts and talents, who loved life and shared his energy with us all.
Corey, was a treasured son, brother, nephew, friend and teammate, who will certainly be missed and will remain with us in spirit, which he had an abundance of, for living life to the maximum.
Corey, is no longer restricted by a body that could no longer function in our world because of the injury he sustained to his brain. Now he is really able to run that 9 sec. flat 100 Yrd Dash, in his new glorified body.
As Corey's parents, we have trusted God for our souls salvation and our faith provides us with a blessed assurance that Corey's absence from his earthly body, means that he is present with the Lord. Our prayer is that if anyone who was a friend or family member of Corey's and you are not sure of your own souls salvation, that you too will come into this knowledge of a personal relationship with Christ and know as we do, that we will see Corey again up in Glory.
May God richly bless you all and Happy New Year,
The Stingley Family
