He Speaks at She Speaks

There were so many moments of feeling God's presence & love at the She Speaks conference I attended in July that I had to share one of the best.
The moment that will be tucked away in my heart forever is being witness to God in His full glory through Wendy Pope.

Wendy stopped dead in her tracks, dropped to her knees,right in the middle of the hotel hallway,to scoop up my daughter from her wheelchair and display the most heartfelt love & affection for a girl she had never met. God's love shined in her and this moment & I was truly blessed to be witness to such love! AMAZING!

Oh My,I know God loved this moment too and there were so many more that He orchestrated. For me another one with Wendy at the cross Sunday morning. I have never had a moment in prayer like the one I had with Wendy! It was me,Wendy & Jesus. AMAZING!

My heart will treasure these moments forever.

To experience more from that moment with Claire, see Wendy Pope's video blog (August 2 post) she explains it so much better,tears will flow!

Captive Life

Claire had a seizure on Saturday that required an ER trip. She is better today,but I usually require a couple of days to recover mentally. I find God whispering to my heart through others, helping me see the light.

For example today as I was listening to a vlog speaking of captivity, I knew that Claire's seizures are a form of this. I don't think God is allowing these seizures as a consequence of sin,but He is definitely teaching me through this time of uncertainty.

 I feel a sort of isolation when we have to go through such times. I wonder when we will live normal lives again? Then I hear the whispers,I will use times such as this,I trust you with a time such as this,to accomplish My(God's) purpose!

I am honored that God has chosen our family for His purpose,even in the scariest times of Claire having a seizure! God appointed isolation is a gift that I need to be obedient in opening carefully.

Dear God,

I praise you for speaking to me during this time of isolation. I praise you for choosing me to be in this time and that you are using this for your purpose. Thank you for showing me joy in this time.Thank you for Wendy, for the vlog and all in this study!  ( Your grace amazes me! In Jesus Name, Amen

God Bless you all, Love Tina
