Last Fall, I had the amazing opportunity to share part of my story at the Annual Triple Share Women’s Conference.
Like most 2020 events, the conference was virtual.
And while logistically things looked differently, it allowed me to connect with women in the United States, the United Kingdom, and several Caribbean countries, without having to travel away from my little ones!
Check out a recap of me sharing on the importance of healing and wholeness in Christ!
It started off like any other prayer but this time, something within me changed.
“Heavenly Father, I come before You today” was all I could say before my voice started to shake and the tears rolled down my face.
Earlier in our morning devotion, my husband and I reflected on our family’s difficult season. It was nothing wrong we’d done; we didn’t fail God in any way. But yet, He allowed a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad circumstance to disrupt our lives.
And it left me broken, bruised and bitter.
I couldn’t see this situation working out for our good no matter how hard I tried. And the more I struggled to find God’s purpose, the more it devastated me.
I knew it was wrong to let in hatred or resentment towards the source of our pain. I knew that even if I had every reason in the world to be angry, God was asking me to forgive.
Still there was a disconnect between what I knew and how I felt.
