What is wrong with you?

I love answering this question and I don’t get embarrassed about it, so here goes…

 

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Dad led me to the Lord at 3.

I have a genetic muscle problem. It was diagnosed when I was 9 and Mum took me to the doctor. Soon afterward, by the same testing, they found out that my sister Bethany who was then 7 has it too.

My other two sisters don’t have it.
When I was 12 or 13, I read the whole Bible for myself and then decided I wanted to be baptised. The pastor when I was 3 wouldn’t let me get baptised.
We have a muscular and nervous system disability that gets worse over time.
When I went to school at 6years old, I couldn’t run as fast as the other children. I thought I was just slow, and my older cousin got me to practice. It was hard.
I fell over a lot and grazed/ bruised my knees. I used to get called names and minor physical bullying because I walked funny and no one knew why, and because I believed in Jesus/ was a goody-two-shoes. I started bullying the bullies, calling people names and had a very naughty friend.
When Mum took me to the doctor and the specialist diagnosed my disability, I was 9 years old.
When my parents told me what the Dr. had said about my disability, they said it starts with being wobbly and slow running, gets worse over time, and would eventually put me in a wheelchair. I found life and school very hard after that for about two years.
– I understand. Really your life is so hard but Jesus is with you.
Matthew 28:20
Then I started becoming bold enough to make friends, being satisfied with what I could do physically- even though my feet were a funny shape (and they still are) and they gave me pain on the concrete, I had strong arms from using the jungle gym, and could avoid the difficult stairs by swinging on a handrail down a big drop.
I became bold because I read my Bible, wrote poetry and shared some with Dad who was proud of me, I read an apologetics book called “Case for Christ: Youth edition.”

I’m now 23 and I’ve been in a wheelchair for 4 yrs. I know the glory of suffering. I go out on the streets in my power wheelchair an preach the Gospel to people, singing hymns at full volube as I go down the st, I educate people that abortion is murder and we fight it with the Gospel, I give out tracts, and I love giving children Gospel tracts. And I teach other people to do evangelism too.
