What's Going On With My Story…
I’ve been struggling lately, debating whether to continue sharing the chapters of my story. The reasons are too numerous to explain, but the one that I’d like to share is this… I’m not the same person I write about in my story. I don’t want people to read about the tragic times in my life & think it stopped there. I also don’t want people to read what I’ve been through & attribute some sort of special strength to me.
I was reading last night in Acts 3, where Peter commanded a man, lame from birth, to get up & walk. The people surrounded him, amazed at what they’d seen. Check out Peter’s response in verse 12. “… ‘Men of Israel, why do you wonder at this, or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or piety we have made him walk?'”
I feel like sometimes people read my story & think it was of my own power that I survived. But I love how Peter continues in verse 16… “And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.”
The person I am today, I attribute solely to the fact that God is AMAZING & He loved this girl enough to turn my tragedy into triumph. He answered my prayers & brought good from the bad.
With that said, I have decided to take a break from writing my story so that I can focus on what I feel God wants me to at this time in my life.
However, I am posting all that I have written, as is. It is unfinished & unedited, so there will be gaps in the storyline & some chapters that are very rough drafts.
I feel like God gives us testimonies to share, so this is for anyone out there who’s going through something tough & painful & needs to see evidence that good can come from the bad when we remember God’s in control.
And since my story is unfinished, please take a look at the “About Me” page. It’s the best way I’ve been able to sum up the current, but ever-changing, version of me.
