Background (my story part 2)

Twenty-three years ago my life was forever changed!  That is when my eyes were opened to the love and mercy of God through his very real presence in the Eucharist.  I discovered that he knew me, loved me, and I could have a personal relationship with him.  He plucked me out of a life full of despair and hopelessness and I was extremely grateful! In order to prove my love and gratitude, I became like a runaway train trying to always do "good" things.  That train suddenly came to a screeching halt after encountering complicated pregnancies and debilitating physical problems.  

Through these thorns however I started to learn how to be still and wait upon the Lord.  I learned that my worth was not in doing but in being. Through these trials he also continues to teach me that his grace is sufficient for me and his strength is made perfect in weakness (2 Cor. 12:9).  As I have learned to surrender more fully to the Lord and lean back in Jesus in everything I do, allowing him to be my hands and feet, I have discovered a transforming power and greater intimacy with my Heavenly Father than I could have ever imagined! 

Through this blog I wish to share some of the things I believe the Lord has shown me in hopes that it may bless others.  The Lord usually speaks to me through visions, not because I am anything special but because he knows that is how I am able to comprehend what he is saying to me.  You see, I am very dyslexic which makes me also very visual.  I am not a "word" person and have even been told that I do not have very good verbal skills. I am so visual in fact that in order to comprehend what someone is saying to me, I have to form a mental picture in my mind of every word that is being said. It brings me great excitement however to know that God likes to use the things we are weak in and it can bring a greater glory to Him!
