I gave birth tonight. I shared my testimony with a group of women that are very dear to me. It took me more than 24 hours to sit and concisely write it all out. I know it’s old skool to say but the Lord has brought me from a mighty long way. At the end the room was in tears as I pushed through the labor pains of the parts of my story that I rarely or ever reveal, to having a full grown baby in my hands standing victorious over my suffering. I’m so glad I know Him and that He calls me his own.
2 Corinthians 12The Message (MSG)(Strength from Weakness)6 If I had a mind to brag a little, I could probably do it without looking ridiculous, and I’d still be speaking plain truth all the way. But I’ll spare you. I don’t want anyone imagining me as anything other than the fool you’d encounter if you saw me on the street or heard me talk.7-10 Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me,My grace is enough; it’s all you need.My strength comes into its own in your weakness.
