My Story

Taking her by the hand he said to her, "Talitha cumin," which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." Mark 5:41

And [Jesus] said to him, "Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you." Mark 5:19

During the Thanksgiving worship service at my church this year, we were encouraged to think about "our story," the story of God at work in our life.  And we were challenged to share it.

Here's mine:

God has taken my proud and arrogant head and crushed it.  
He has shown me my weaknesses. 
He has brought to light my faults.
He has led me away from the path I prepared for myself…

Only to take me to His path, the one he had prepared for me from days of old.
He showed me my faults only to show me a way to mend them.
He brought forth my weaknesses so that I could understand the depths of his strength.
He crushed my head, so that He could have its place.

And for all of this, I am forever thankful.
