But there is always a reason for everything, a purpose, a season, to everything turn,turn,turn, etc. I know now that that moment for me was my Damascus, my personal flash of lightning! I know he stopped me dead and said ...
"That's enough! You've had your experiences, now you do what I want you to do!"
I fought it once, he hit me down again,
I fought it twice, believed I could start over where I had left off, he hit me down again!
I tried to fight for a third time, he said ...
and lay me flat for three whole days. I could move nothing but my facial features! I had to be helped with everything else, I was like a baby totally dependent on others for my every need. And as I lay there my brain took stock, began to hear His voice, listened to His words, and began to understand the pathway from pride to humility.
I now use the talents and skills given to me to bring joy to many thousands of people all over the North of England, reading, singing, telling stories, watching their faces reflect His glory!
I never saw it coming, but when it came it changed my life.
