A few weeks ago my brother-in-law shared with me an article written by Dave Furman, pastor of Redeemer Church of Dubai. In his post titled The Struggles and Hopes of a Disabled Dad, Dave writes “Ten years ago I never would have dreamed that I would have a physical disability. But God knew the beautiful design he had for me and for the spread of his gospel would involve taking away the strength of my hands.”
You know, a little over twelve months ago, I would have thought pretty much the same. But God has a plan, His plan, not mine. While I don’t know exactly what that is, I know that it is going to continue to change my life, forever. Being able to share with people about what I am going through and how I am dealing with my chronic pain each day is a blessing.
Just yesterday we had a family Christmas party with my mum’s side of the family and it was very encouraging to be able to chat with them about what I am going through. But more so that, even though I am in constant pain, that I could say positively that God isn’t going to heal me, but is going to use this to help others.
I have always wanted to write, but have never been able to put pen to paper. Now, it seems that I just can’t stop writing and it’s very encouraging to me that people all over the world are reading my posts.
I would like to encourage you, that if you have a desire to write about something that may help others, then give it a go.
