As I type this post, my fingers tremble. A different title came to mind while driving through torrential rain and hail yesterday morning. I’d planned a completely different angle of inspiration. I’d readied myself to be a hero for someone who’d been facing the metaphorical version of what I’d literally been a part of mere hours ago. Pushing Through Your Storm was supposed to be this post’s name, yet, this morning’s findings caught me off guard. Sorrow met me at the door when I swiped my badge at work and learned that one of my co-workers and two of his daughters had been among the fallen from last night’s tornadoes in Central AR. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims of last night’s disaster. I suppose the title would be fitting for those impacted by this tragedy, but more on how to push through it will have to wait until tomorrow as we remember the fallen today.
First and foremost, I love the Lord! I have a couple degrees in Journalism and I’ve loved to write since I could hold a pen. I've been told I write pretty well, but only within the last few years have I realized why God gave me this gift. I'm meant to encourage others and what better way to do that than to share how God’s word is transforming my life. Granted, I am still work in progress, but I am grateful for the opportunity to do what I’ve been called to do for His glory! FYI, I don’t profess to be perfect or to know it all, but I serve the only God who matches that criteria so I think I’m pretty well-equipped to do what I do!
