One thing I truly enjoy about writing; is that when I write, I am in the presence of One that holds so much power and wisdom and when I listen for His voice within my spirit, rather than trying to put my own words together; then His words become words of hope that can touch and heal a hurting soul.
Some of you may not know this but my gift for writing came over 16 years ago. After coming through many days of pain and heartache, a day came, when I began to feel a very special touch from God. It was as if my heart had been brought down to a different level, where I could feel and experience things around me, in a much deeper way. When I get alone with God and open myself up to Him; that is when His words begin to ring loud and clear within my thoughts.
So many times, we go through long periods of pain or heartache and feel as though these moments will never serve any great purpose in life but I have come to see, through a lifetime of brokenness that when I open myself up to God; it’s amazing how God can use these broken moments, to not only minister to myself but to others around me.
For the longest time, I have come to see that the word “disabled” doesn’t mean “not able” in God’s vocabulary. When we can give someone a reassuring smile, while we are facing our own pain; then God is being seen. When we can rise above our own problem to reach out and help someone else in need; then God is being seen. So many times, we fall prey to our problems, rather than allowing God to work through the problem, which only leads us to a place of needless suffering. When we can allow our weaknesses to reveal a strength that isn’t normally seen in this world; then we are allowing others to experience a strong God, which in turn, will open up an opportunity for them to reach out to a God, who can work in their life too.
