This past week I had the awesome opportunity of volunteering at Vacation Bible School at my church. The theme was Weird Animals and every night was focused on a different bible point. The night that really stuck out to me the most was “Even though your different Jesus loves you!” I have heard that statement all my life but that night God revealed it to me in a new way. Throughout the week I was asked why I was in my chair several times and I’d reply “That’s just the way God made me.” I don’t have an definite answer yet and I may not until I’m in Heaven but I think I’ve got a pretty good idea of why He allowed me to have Cerebral Palsy and it’s because He knew that I would be able to reach and impact more people for Him through my disability. All I can do every day is do my best to live for Him and to be content with these temporary circumstances because I know I won’t have Cerebral Palsy forever and I’m so grateful for that!!! No matter what we experience in life we can take comfort in knowing that it’s only a matter of time before we are made right with God in Heaven one day!
