More Than the Arnold Classic

Father God, I am deeply humbled by your grace and mercy upon my life.  Less than a year ago both of my legs were still in casts before I went through physical therapy, being lowered into a swimming pool via crane to learn  how to walk again.  A few months later only to have surgery to be in casts yet again.  Thank you God for the strength that only comes from you to persevere, to see the beauty through a time of suffering, to grow nearer to you when pain tried taking over for months, and then to find myself walking across the stage in five inch heels to be awarded something I didn’t believe I deserved.  This glory belongs to you, O God.  Thank you God, that I can even walk again.

“No mountain, no valley, no gain or loss we know could keep us from Your love.  No sickness, no secret, no chain is strong enough to keep us from Your love.  How high, how wide, no matter where I am, healing is in Your hands. How deep, how strong, now by Your grace I stand, healing is in Your hands. Our present, our future, our past is in Your hands, we’re covered by Your blood, we’re covered by Your love.  In all things, we know that we are more than conquerors who keep us by  Your love.”

  1. Your story is very compelling. Reading through your blog posts, yours is a testament of the strength that can only be found through faith. Not just experiencing some of these events in your life, but being able to share some rather painful experiences. Congratulations with the competition. Thanks for sharing this with me.
