It. Will. Happen.

Hi again!

I thought I’d write about something God has been speaking to me about for years. But in these past several weeks, He’s been speaking to me about it in a very loud and persistent way. I’ll have to fill you in on some important facts.

1)I have had Type 1 Diabetic since I was 12 years old. This means I’ve lived with this wicked disease for 17 years.

2) Type 1 Diabetes is different than type 2 Diabetes, which is generally what you hear about as being an epidemic. While it does have the same side effects, it cannot be cured by a diet/exercise change like Type 2 can.

Since the day I got it, I have believed God will heal me. The longer I’ve had the disease, the more loudly and more frequently God has spoken this to me. I will be healed. But let me tell you, riding this out has not been and is not easy. I’m sure I will write more about the process God has brought me through so far, but for now, I will get to the point!

I was reading a journal entry from about a month ago, about what an effect it will have on my faith when I get healed. And don’t get me wrong- I’m sure it will. I wrote that I will have the kind of faith that believes in persevering prayer- that no matter how long it takes, God is faithful and will answer, even if it’s seemed hopeless for years. But an amazing thing has happened over the past month. I am reading back on this and realizing that through whatever process God has been taking me through with this whole thing, I have begun to have that faith. I used to have a lot more doubt, but I KNOW God will have an answer for me. I have hope because God is already bringing me through whatever it takes to GET this kind of faith, and I can see it developing in me. I can see it changing the way I think about other areas of my life as well.

I have a strange love for a hard season because I LOVE what it produces. What I want to know is what on earth (and in heaven) is this going to produce? Because seriously? 17 years of my life have been spent on this hard season of mine.

I want to always be looking for both the healing and the answer to the previous question. I don’t want to give up and be caught off guard, or even worse, miss whatever He has for me. I want to look to Him and look to Him until I see it. I will give the widow in Luke 18:1-8  a run for her money, and it will be worth it.

This promise isn’t just for me, but also for the effect it will have on everyone around me. This is a big deal. I know because of the size of the fight I’ve had to put up for this promise to come to pass.

There’s one thing I know for sure. It is worth it to pursue God at all cost- no matter how hard it might be. It WILL be hard sometimes. But…

“Though sorrow may last for a night, JOY comes with the morning!” I can’t wait for the RIDICULOUS joy I know is comin’ outta this one!

HI!

Hi there! My name is Kelly…I plan to put some info about myself in the little about me section that I’m sure will be on here at some point…but for now…

This blog is about Jesus. More specifically, about my walk with Jesus. My love for Jesus. MY BUCK WILD PASSION FOR JESUS. And I hope you catch it- or I catch yours. Both would be awesome.

This won’t be a “preach AT you” blog (I hope). My plan is to post recent things God has been speaking to me. So as I write, it won’t be coming from someone who has necessarily been there and back with whatever I’m talking about, and it won’t be talking down at all. Instead, it’ll be about something God pretty much JUST showed me- about anything, whether that’s life, people, the Bible or I don’t know, animals. Anything. It’ll be something He’s working in me as well. And once in awhile it just may be something He’s been speaking to me about for a long time.

One of my favorite things about God is that the simple with Him is what is profound. The other favorite is that He speaks in SO many ways. He can and does speak through pretty much anything if you listen. I love it. He’s everywhere and He’s GOOD. So good.

So hopefully we can make friends through it all. Hopefully I affect your life and you affect mine. I would love comments, your own insights, prayer requests…whatever works.

Thanks for listening!!!
