My Hidden Blessing

    I’ve been asked how I stay so upbeat, laughing and smiling all the time under my circumstance. Okay here it is:  First, I had to accept it and when I say “I am disabled” I’m not letting it define me because of what I look like but I’m owning my disability and defining what’s on the inside of me.  It’s a must that I give El Shaddai the most praise and be grateful because without Him I wouldn’t have this smile, joy, laughter, compassion, determination or love.  I believe God could heal me with one small touch.  Let’s just say I’ve learned that my disability keeps me broken and I need Him every single day realizing that my rising out of bed in the morning and lying down at night is not of my own will.  My situation maybe a life sentence but also a (hidden) blessing and it is only temporary and that’s what keep me pressing forward knowing one day I’ll be free. Although every day is a struggle for me I look forward to each one knowing it is He that is carrying me.  Honestly, I think that everyone has something about themselves that they feel is their weakness…. their 'disability.' And I'm certain we all have one, because I think of a disability as being anything which undermines our belief and confidence in our own abilities.  So let me encourage you by what was told to me “No matter how long the marathon may seem…..keep pushing forward….because the finish line is gonna be amazing”.  One of my favorite verses is 2 Corinthians 12:9…..Thank you Jesus for being my ROCK!!
