I love his heart! so glad to read his story here! He is blessed!
We all have disabilities
I have a speech impediment…I stutter. God, however, continues to ask me to speak up. Sometimes, I stammer or hesitate…sometimes it comes out smooth. I usually have no control over it. I used to ask people to lay hands on me and pray for a healing. After many failed attempts, God has assured me that it’s a “thorn in the flesh” and, like He told Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
I don’t think we have that kind of space.
I’ve never not believed there is God because only the God of the universes could use someone like me, in spite of me.
I wanted to write the same blog!
A thought so true…yet I never realized it before.
My disability is pride.
My biggest handicap too often is a complete lack of self esteem/confidence. Too often it keeps the me God created in the bondage of fear.
I have a lot of disabilities, a major one is selfishness.
We were all so blessed by Randy’s visit. I’m looking forward to “non-Bible study” next Tuesday!
Oh, which one…the ones that God has brought to my attention currently are: blurting out my first reactions without thinking first, so I don’t always speak the truth in love, and a tendency towards snappy bordering on sarcastic remarks. My daughters would also tell you that I unhygienically pick my nose at times….
Enjoying reading this blog for the first time today!
I had one of those moments recently where I woke up grateful for my pain. Grateful that God can take whatever slimy hair ball messes we have stuck in our (life)drains, backing things up and slowing us down, and he can turn them into something useful or even beautiful.
My biggest, nastiest, stinkiest, gets-in-my-way-every-day, slimy hairball: lack of trust
