Faith, Courage, & Love

There is a master plan!

There is a plan for me. And I see miracles everyday with how things come together in my life for a purpose. People see that I go through so much medical stuff and they think “Bless her heart”, “Poor thing”, or even “How do you do it?”

Here is exactly how I do it; on faith, by having courage, and knowing love.

Matthew 17:19-20

"Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, 'Why could we not cast it out?' He said to them, 'Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you."

Faith, even with only a mustard seed you can you can move mountains in your life. That isn’t asking for much, and I believe that everyone has a tiny amount of faith and hope in their life. This small belief in a high power can make you relax. Because you know you aren’t carrying your burdens alone, because you have that tiny amount of faith. Sometimes I lack faith, but that doesn’t change the love god has for me, and I can always go back to him and find his love no matter what. You have to be strong and have courage with your faith.

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”’

Sometimes when life takes a hard turn or you are going down a path alone. Truly you are not alone no matter where you are. God is there, he is guiding you, and everything happens for a reason. When things get bad and everyone has times in their life that are troubling. You have to cling to god’s word; be strong and courageous. You never know how strong you are until you have to be. You never will feel courageous unless you have troubling times that you overcome. With the mustard seed of faith you can find out just how strong you are and how much courage you have.

1 John 4:16

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

Faith/Trust, strength, and courage; allows a person to love. The word love should make you smile. God’s love is never ending! If you open up and allow yourself to love, then he will reside in you. It’s hard to live in love, but you can’t take the injustice of others and allow it to change you. We all have been disappointed or mad about love, we can even hold grudges at times. But with faith, courage, and the love of god we can move past the things that disappoint us. We can return to his love at any point, because god doesn’t hold a grudge against our sins. Love conquers all, and living for loves will change your life.

Before my spinal cord injury I was a deputy in Jefferson county, Kentucky. Since my SCI, I have been advocating for those living with a disability. I have been celebrating my reign as 2016, Ms. Wheelchair Kentucky. I have been traveling all over the state doing events everything from Graduation Speaker for Galen college of Nursing, to speaking to elementary schools. I have attend 82 events this past year, sharing my store and promoting change for how those with a disability are seen and treated. If you can't stand up, stand out!
