The Betty Mitchell Story
I begged them to let me get my daughter who was sleeping, but I was not allowed. Instead they led me and my children over to another part of the leprosarium and told us to sit down on the ground with the four nurses and wait.
This was the most trying time of my life seeing my husband tied and led off like that, not knowing when we would see him again and not knowing what might happen to Gerry alone in the house!
Why Have You Done This to Us?
The life we imagine with Christ is often very different from the reality of our lives lived with Christ. Have you ever journeyed with Jesus from “I am the Lord’s servant” and “My spirit rejoices in God my Savior” to “Why?” That’s OK. Ask the honest questions. Listen for the answers. Jesus is truth. Continue to walk with him. Jesus is present. Jesus will not leave you. He will continue to journey with you.
This is also God’s message to you. He has made YOU unique. Maybe you feel strange. BUT God is the author of the “strange”; He made you the way you are. He made you with your personality and all your quirks. His relationship with you is as unique as you are. He is glorified when you worship Him in the way He built you to worship Him.
Anna spoke about the child Jesus. We have been called to do the same. Speak about Jesus. I’m afraid we often over complicate this commission.
