This Week’s Story

In This Week’s Story, my heart is heavy.  It is so … well … so many reasons.  I ache for the innocence lost.  The pain that this sweet girl still deals with.  The uncertainty of when bad days feel like they are overcoming her.  It is just hard.  Yet, there is power in her story.

I firmly believe that this WAS NOT ordained by God but allowed due to the free-will of man.  Yet, He will use her story for His glory.  She is a fighter.  Overcomer.  Warrior.  She is an amazing human being with a prayer life that is amazing and her faith has never waivered.

As sad as I am for what she went through … I am humbled by her perseverance, grace, forgiveness, and mercy.  Furthermore, her fight inspires me.  A beloved child of the King/
