Blessed to be Broken

God's not finished with me yet!

#Amazed-The one who walked away

on August 22, 2013


For those of you who don’t know, I’m currently participating in an on-line Bible Study called “What Happens When Women Say Yes To God” by Lysa TerKeurst.  Let me just say, it has been one #amazed eye opening experience after another. So much so, that I find myself sometimes going…”do I reeeally wanna read that next chapter?”  Not in a bad way, in a “am I ready for this” way.  When you decide to say #YesToGod, you had better be prepared to be convicted to the core.  So I hunkered down and got ready for Chapter 4, “You never know how God will use you until you let Him,” and use you, He will.

Did you know your life experiences were not necessarily yours to hold onto? That maybe just maybe you weathered some pretty nasty storms so that you could help others who are maybe less equipped to do so?  Of course their situations aren’t going to be exactly like yours, but they will be similar enough that once you start talking, you start seeing a reaction.  They might cry, laugh, hit you in the arm and tell you to “shut up,” or even get up and walk away.  Yesterday, that’s exactly what happened; she walked away.

It was a beautiful day at the lake, the sun was setting and God was painting the sky with hues of cotton candy pink and blue.  God had given me a day to spend with some sisters in Christ, and I was talking with two of my new friends about a situation going on in my life where I had stepped out of sync with God’s Word.  I had put the cart before the horse and I was now paying the price of a broken relationship.

Little did I know as I was telling my tale of disobedience, God was using this experience to help another from possibly making the same mistake.  You see there were two other ladies whose backs were to us as they too were enjoying the sunset.  I was mostly to the end of my story when both of those ladies decided to get up from their seats and walk away.  I really didn’t think anything of it since I was not speaking directly to them, but one of the gals walking away, stopped and held fast to one of the women I was speaking with, and she said she was sorry, she didn’t mean to eavesdrop but she couldn’t help it and now it was too personal and she had to leave; she walked away.

Needless to say I was a bit perplexed as the woman I was talking with was now smiling from ear to ear, nodding her head as she sat for a moment drinking in what just happened. She looked directly at me and said “you don’t know it, but God just used your situation to speak loud and clear” to the one that walked away.

I had no intention of telling women I had just met my current situation, it just happened.  I was actually ashamed to be telling them the story, but it was like my mouth opened and the words just poured out.  My brain was like, shut- up, shut-up, shut-up already, and yet my lips kept flapping away… and just like that, God used me.  So to the one that walked away, let God lead you, not the flesh and you will be #Amazed at what He has in store for you when you just say #YesToGod.

    So a “random” “last minute” trip to the lake with your friend was already in God’s Day Planner huh? 😉 Isn’t it amazing (yes, I said it) how He orchestrates all the behind the scenes stuff to bring everyone together at just the right time and place? Yeah, I believe in coincidences…This was a Divine appointment for you and more so, for that young lady…This is so exciting to read Trish and I praise God for using your #YestoGod moment to reach someone who He prepared just for you ❤

  2. I can only pray that my words had a lasting effect!! And yea, a “random”, “last minute” day trip to the lake. God is truly the ultimate orchestrater and perfecter of us all. 🙂
