Does it Glorify God?
If we continue to ask this question of the things we do, the lives of people around us would be radically changed.
God has blessed me thoroughly.
I received Christ as my Savior on my 19th birthday, in 1990.
I experienced a traumatic automobile accident in 1996. I broke my back in 3 places, crushed my pelvis, broke ribs, crushed my skull, sustained a severe traumatic brain injury, and a bunch of other things.
Through this, God healed me! I spent time in a rehabilitation hospital, relearning to walk, read, all that life stuff.
God is victorious in all this. Because of this, I was able to receive vocational rehabilitation services through the Veteran's Administration. I attended college, and received my Bachelor's Degree in Speech Pathology.
God provided this for me. I had always wanted to attend college, but it was only after the accident that I could attend full time, all expenses paid.
Now, God has blessed me with a job as a speech therapist, at the Austine School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, In Brattleboro, VT. I am learning more ASL, and am continuing to do so. I am continuing school, in order to receive my Master's Degree in speech pathology.
I attended Turners Falls High School, in Turners Falls, Massachusetts. My brother was a drug dealer, and I lived in a household that was below the poverty line. In this, God provided a program that taught me about leadership, aerospace education, military bearing, search and rescue, and living drug free. Without the Civil Air Patrol, I probably would have never left my small town. Praise God, He is faithful to draw men unto Him.
Just after graduation, I went into the Air Force. It was my only option, really. I had received the Billy Mitchell award, from Civil air Patrol, and I went in as an E-3. After basic training and technical school, my first assignment was Iceland, Keflavik NAS. God met me where I was, literally. He brought a preacher chick all the way from South Carolina, to lead me to Christ, on my 19th Birthday. Amazing, I tell you!
Only God could be so faithful to see things through to the completion.
I want to take a moment and invite you to join a group that I moderate. "Adventures with ADD and ADHD."
Either you, or someone you know have the symptoms, or a diagnosis. The best part is, God created us this way!
ADD and ADHD are not bad things. This is a place to encourage each other in the Lord, share our own stories. It is a positive group. For people who embrace ADD/ADHD, and are willing to fight through, using various means, to Glorify God. We can share the pro's and con's, and probably laugh with each other about the things we do.
It is a place we can comfort and pray for each other's specific needs.
