CATALYST WOMEN

January 31, 2020

“There are no coincidences with God. He can use you – just as you are and just where you are. Even if it’s a really crummy place. Perhaps even more so if it’s a really crummy place. God has never worked in me and through me more than He did during the times I was walking through the darkest valleys of my life. As we navigated the illnesses and deaths of our two boys, God gave me the desire to be open, honest and vulnerable in sharing our story. What started as an intent to share medical updates in an efficient way, turned into a platform for sharing our hearts and what God was doing in our lives. And He used it. He used it mightily. Words penned from my sons’ hospital rooms traveled farther and reached more lives than I ever could have imagined. I sat beside their beds, wondering, “Why him? Why us?” while pleading with God to change our circumstance, but what He did was so much more. A place that held the worst moments of our lives was also the place He used us the most.”

“…I can’t explain why I let my mind wander to this fearful place in such a precious moment. But God so sweetly showed me what I needed to see next. I felt like he was saying, “Yes, you are responsible for caring for her, raising her, showing her the way, but this is what it looks like to trust wholly and completely. This little girl is asleep in your lap without a care in the world because she trusts you with her entire being. She lacks nothing, wants for nothing, and rests in perfect peace because she has you.” It hit me like a ton of bricks. That’s exactly what He wants to be for me. He wants me to fall into his arms, trusting Him with every part of me, relying on Him to provide for my every need and bear my every burden.”
