When God commissioned me to write my latest book, Surviving the wait: How I learned to be still and wait on God, I understood the assignment, I just didn’t know why it was given to me. As I struggled for months to relive what I had been through and am presently facing, I often questioned God, “Why me? Of all the people who have suffered heartache and pain just as I have, what makes my story any different from theirs?” As God would have it, He replied, “You’re able to tell those who are on the brink of giving up, that there’s light at the end of the tunnel, because you saw it!”
From that moment forward, I knew exactly what needed to be done. Not only was I to use my testimony to let people know greater things will come after the storm, I was to be the light they desperately needed. It’s so easy to tell people, “Times are hard, but things will be okay,” or “Don’t lose hope, no matter what your circumstances look like,” and while all of that is true, people don’t want to know things will get better, they want proof that it will. Guess what? I’m living proof!
I don’t care how long you’ve been in the tunnel, don’t you stop walking until you see the light!
Until next time my NOTE takers!
