Martin Luther King, Jr.
There was no way I could have known....when I struggled in all that darkness....that He had a plan.
I just found out my book won a TWG award and an honorable mention for the highest of their awards. I struggled so much to write....to tell the truth of what happened. Winning - it makes me think....He knew all along that I would tell. I had to. It was His touch....the touch of His gentleness that made all the difference.
I'm grateful that He never gave up on me....that He didn't listen when I shook my fist in the air and dared Him to kill me. He waited...patiently...until I was ready....to let go....to stop hurting myself....to trust... that He had a plan....a purpose to use all that pain and trauma. He just wanted me to tell. I couldn't for a long time - but now - I know....when we're in the darkness....and there seems to be no way out.....and our prayers seem to be hitting the ceiling.....to stay strong....to hold tight...because we're moving mountains long before we know we can. There can be miracles when you believe.....
