God Speaks!! All in His Timing…

God speaks in so many ways! We just have to realize that so much of what we think is coincidental really is not. He speaks in a “small still voice”, in an audible voice, through the Word, through pastors, through other people, through numbers, through music, and even through “a donkey” if He wants. He will speak when and where and how He wants. And He will give us confirmation if we ask for it… and that is exactly what I received today.

I have been praying if and when I am supposed to start speaking in public about abuse, the wounds of abuse with the many “walking wounded”, and God’s grace and mercy that is available to all of us. You see, what God did for me and my children is simply miraculous.  I have written about it but speaking is different. Invitations have previously come but graciously declined as I remained “secret”. But is my time of being “secret” coming to an end. I have been asking God to lead me and open the doors when He was ready with the boldness to speak. Then as I was driving to work today, I heard this first song… Walk in Faith. I felt God telling me to trust Him and not fear for “this broken road” prepared His will for me. Then the next song brought tears to my eyes…. My Story. And as I heard these words, I knew that it is time to start speaking for it is not about me, it’s all about Him“Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him”. For what He did for me, He can and will do for many more.

Would I believe you when you would say
Your hand will guide my every way
Will I receive the words You say
Every moment of every day

Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me

Help me to win my endless fears
You’ve been so faithful for all my years
With one breath You make me new
Your grace covers all I do

yeah, yeah , yeah, yeah, yeah, ya
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me

Well I’m broken- but I still see Your face
Well You’ve spoken- pouring Your words of grace
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me

Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me

Well hallelujah, hallelu
(I will walk by faith)
Well hallelujah, hallelu
(I will walk by faith)

I will walk, I will walk, I will walk by faith
I will, I will, I will walk by faith

If I told you my story
You would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go
And if I told you my story
You would hear Love that never gave up
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine

If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

If I told you my story
You would hear victory over the enemy
And if I told you my story
You would hear freedom that was won for me
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life overcome the grave

If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long

For the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell
For the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11

  1. The first time you stand before an audience can be quite scary but when you step down afterwards, you’ll never shut up. Been there-done that. Also, the shame that I carried for years was GONE! Go for it woman. Lots of people need to hear your testimony.

    • Sue, thank you so much for your encouragement. You are an inspiration to me. I actually thought that no one would ever want to read my story but I knew that I had to walk in obedience. I have always been a shy, “back of the room” person, never wanting to be out in front where people would see me. But then, that is another symptom of wounds inflicted upon us. I know that this would be another stage of healing and overcoming for me. Thanks again and many blessings to you, my sweet sister!

      • Having our testimony in a book is great but what was it the Lord said about “hearing?” You’ll be great. It’s amazing what healing comes from doing this. Let us know when, where, and what time is your first speaking engagement and maybe we can “tune in.” If He sends you to Atlanta you can stay with me. 🙂

      • Awe… You are so sweet. Baby steps first. I know that God will open the doors that He wants me to walk through. I have known from the first day that He had a plan for this book when He told me to write it. All in His timing now!!
