For many years of my life, I was stuck in a fixed mindset. I viewed my scars as something horrible that happened to me. I couldn’t see a bigger picture or how God could use them in a positive way. During this time, I was very unhappy, and I resisted God’s plan for my life.
Then one day, I put it all at His feet. I had tried to open doors of opportunity for myself and nothing had worked out like I wanted. Finally, weary and heartbroken, I humbled myself and laid on my bathroom floor—sobbing and praying. I asked Him to give me something to help other people. Something that would be mine. Something that would fulfill my life with passion and purpose. After that day, it wasn’t long until I picked up my pen and penned my first piece from my heart. It scared me when I looked at what I had written. Where did that come from? Even though my mind questioned it, my heart knew.
While my writing career didn’t just bloom and blossom. God has walked with me every step of the way. Every time that I humble my heart and sit down to write my heart is filled. It is not what I would have chosen for myself, but it is exactly what I needed. When we go to God for guidance and put our lives in His hands, then He will use us in a way that we never dreamed possible. And it will feed our soul.
Love and blessings,
