We serve an awesome God!!!
I know that earlier this week, I am not so sure I would have felt like saying this as strongly as I do tonight! In fact, on Thursday I know that I did not feel like it at all! Going through this trial, one of my students has been molested and I have had a difficult time in dealing with it! It all came to an apparent end on Wedensday as she was taken to Children's Hospital for an examination. We were so sure that she would be removed from her situation. On Thursday, she returned to school and we were told that it was a"rash" from an allergic reaction! Although the did not say that she hasn't been abused, they are not going to do anything at this time. I was devastated! I could not even figure out how I should react! I hurt so badly for her, so many unanswered questions but at the same time I knew that I had alot of people were watching me for my response. They were watching to see if I could walk the walk as well as talk the talk! I did not want to ruin my testimony with the people that I work with, but I was a wreck! After work Thursday, I got alone with my Lord. I told Him how I felt, how I can't handle it anymore and I asked Him what I should do. He softly said, "give it to me, I'll take it, I'll lift it of your shoulders. You won't have to worry anymore, just place her in my hands and trust me!" Well, that evening I did that! I left it all in His loving hands! It wasn't easy but I had to do it as I could no longer do it! I felt my load lighten and I could now put a smile back on my face! Today, as I was still concerned for my testimony, I made it known that I had given it all to the Lord and He is taking care of it! Before I left work today, one of my co-workers came up to me and asked me if I could pick her up for church on Sunday!!! Praise God, my testimony was not ruined and once again God has used me for His glory!!! I am so blessed! I serve an awesome loving, caring God! What has God been using you for? To me there is no greater feeling then that of being used of God!!!
