I have been e-mailing a friend this week that I’ve never met. She is an inspiration not only to me but many others around the world. Her name is Joni Eareckson Tada, my hero!! She was paralyzed as a teenager when she dove into shallow water at the Chesapeake Bay
God allowed circumstances that we don’t understand in our lives, that we don’t think we can go through. But with God by our side we can go through any valley! Sometimes I ask God, “Why did you let this happen to me?” You might ask Him that very question in your life right now.
I don ‘t understand fully why God let the doctor misdiagnosis me when I was three years old . But I do know that I couldn’t live without God by my side through all my trials. I know God has a perfect plan for my life and yours.
Isaiah 55:8-11 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
