Exactly six months ago, I was sitting in a hotel lobby fretting and praying about my surgery the next day. You can read all about that experience here. Yes that's right, tomorrow, August 27th marks 6 months since my brain surgery! I can't believe how quickly time has passed! With God as my strength, I was able to come through the hardest adversity of my life thus far, with a smile on my face and a heart full of gladness, peace, and joy!
My prayer through this whole difficulty has been that Christ would be glorified and His light would shine through me. I continue to strive everyday to be the best example of Christ's love and grace I can be. I don't follow a set of rules. I'm not perfect. I don't worry about crossing out tasks on a Christian to-do list. I have a passionate love relationship with Jesus Christ and I am alive to serve His people, as He did when he was on this earth!
Friends, that's all being a Christian is all about: Love God, Love Others. If you don't know Jesus Christ on a deep, personal level and need someone to talk to, I'm here for you. Know that I care about you; I care about you for all of eternity! Give up all of your struggles. This life is hard; it knocks you down and you're just not strong enough to make it through alone. But we don't have to; we have a Father who wants to take away our pain. We just have to give up control to Him!
