I am sitting here in tears after reading this latest blog post by Ann Voskamp over on her site: www.aholyexperience.com. It is about a young lady, Sarah Frankl, who was diagnosed several years ago with a severe disease that has caused her to be home bound 100% of the time for the last 3 years of her life. About 3 months ago or so I randomly ran across her blog (http://gitzengirl.blogspot.com/) and was overwhelmed! You really need to go there read about the life the Lord led her into and the faith, trust, and joy He wove into every part of her life because if this disease. Lord, open my eyes to all you do in my life! Lord, help me to see how You alone can use every struggle, trying time, everything that lacks sense or joy to mold me more into Your image, if only I will let go and allow You to do the work in my life that only You can do. Lord, remove my blinders. Remove the selfishness in me that makes me look at every situation based on the good and bad for me rather than looking at it based on how mightily You can move in the situation. You know all, see all, control all, heal all, refresh all, mold all, change all, and make all things new. Help me to get out of the way and allow You to work.
