For the longest time in my life, I wanted to avoid my disability. I wanted to deny having it, cover it up and push it aside. I hated it and felt like that others only saw the disability and not the real me.
These feelings did not change until I accepted God’s leading of me into chaplaincy. For the first time, my brokenness allowed me to connect with the broken. Thus, I had to let go of who I thought I should be in order to be the real me. It wasn’t until I accepted who God designed me to be that He could truly begin working through me.
Like the potter continuously molds the clay until it assumes the shape he needs, the Lord is always molding us for His glorious purpose.
Father, allow us to constantly feel Your gentle touch as You endlessly create in us who You desire us to become. In Your precious name I pray, Amen.
