E-Cheer: Disability or Detour
Not For Sale
Sign on a church: "Home Improvement Center -- bring your family to
church." Now that makes sense!
Learn to accept the inevitable. For example, there are some things I
just can't do with only one functioning hand: 1) I can't tie a necktie --
thank the Lord for clip-on neckties. 2) I can't tie shoes -- again, thank
the Lord for Velcro straps. I can either fume about my inability or use
and thank God for an alternative.
Today is a day when we are especially proud of our veterans and
grateful for them. Many of them are dealing with war related
disabilities. Disability may not be the right word. Whether it is a
disability or a detour depends on our approach to our problems. A
detour is simply another way to get around a closed path.
Disability says I can't do it. Detour says, it may be harder, but I can
find another way to do it. I'm on a detour and enjoying the scenery. For
example, I'm reaching far more people for God with E-Cheer than I
ever did with my music and a healthy body. Disability? Not at all --
just a wonderful detour.
I encourage you to turn your percieved disabilities and/or
disappointments into exciting new detours. Perhaps your best days are
still ahead. You won't know until you try.
2 Cor. 12:10 (nasb). "Therefore I am well content with weaknesses,
with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for
Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong." Have you
discovered your strength? Perhaps it will come through your weakness,
