Last week, I allowed you to sit with me the moment I learned about my pregnancy just weeks after completing my final chemo treatment. It was a day I will never forget, but one I held very deep in my heart. In fact, until last week, it was a moment I had never really shared openly.
We tend to do that, don’t we?
The moments that mean so much to us and redefine our faith, we cherish next to our heart.
And we should.
You are cutting God short. You see, that work He did in your life can change the lives of others. If your story is indeed part of His story, it has His power flowing through every word when it is shared. You have experienced the hands of God in a way maybe others never even thought possible. What if your moment was meant to be experienced by others? What if this great work He has done in you still needs to flow through you?

Since posting the first video, I was part of a Toastmasters Area speech contest. God used the making of these videos last week to remind me that Matthew’s birthday was actually on the day of my speech contest. Perhaps this could be His big day? No, not Matthew’s. Notice I’m referring to the big H. Could I actually trust God enough to tell my cancer story infront of a room of people, judges and family? Keeping in mind this is an emotional event and there is just no way to talk about this portion of my life without God’s role. How would this be viewed? Was I ready to go here with Him again?
Last Saturday was His big day. I actually had three prayer warriors storming the Throne praying I could make it through the pressure of that day. I remember standing in the back of the room, waiting to be introduced. Usually the flood of nerves kicks-in. They still attempted a take-over but I was reminded that this was His story, not mine. I’ve never given such a big, close to my momma’s heart speech feeling completely in His control. The words came flawlessly. It was one of those experiences I knew was God orchestrated because I can’t deliver what occurred. And frankly, that’s the awesome part!
Has He made a mark in your life? Have you shared His story? Is it time you gave Him His big day?
Below is the video I made for Gail Swinson’s “A Mother’s Love” book release party last week. It’s so incredibly surreal what God has done through my little breaking of a comfort zone through these videos. And you know, He can do the same for you too.
Love you all! See you next week!
