"Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see." Corrie Ten Boone (The Hiding Place)
I struggled to write this post. Nothing would come to me. The week's been slow...nothing major happened....just everyday mundane things... Still....inside...I feel it...that hope....and peace....a sense He's there...in my corner.
Today I had to pick up a cheque from a bookstore that had sold some of my books. My youngest and I had been goofy around. In fun...she jumped on my back and pulled something out of whack...causing excruciating pain...so much so....I thought I better stay home. But there was a niggling to go. I'm glad I did.
When I got there...the woman at the cash handed me the money and asked what book I wrote. She found it....read the back and said...you've been through alot. I waited. Then she opened up...told me she's struggling with something....and wondered where God was...why was He being silent. We talked. Before I left.....she said my coming into the store was Him answering her....showing He really was in her corner.
Yesterday.....a woman called....asked if I would speak to their women's group in March....70 women. I said yes. I'm not a speaker....and pretty much a chicken. But I promised Him I would go wherever He wanted.....tell my story whoever needed to hear it. I hung up the phone thinking....I have no idea how I'm going to stand up and speak in front of all those people.....but somehow I will.
I can't explain this kind of love....this kind of grace.....From the moment my life began....You have been faithful....
