How blessed I am when I hear how His Majesty in Brokenness is being used!
The following e-mail is from my former roommate, Cathy Binkley Padgett, who I met while attending Campus Crusade for Christ’s IBS at Arrowhead Springs in the sixties. I’m sure my removable legs were a shocker to her but God used them to prepare her, to strengthen her and to show her His presence in brokenness as she would experience the pain of her son Troy’s severe and fatal disability in his adult life.
My class at SS was humored and blessed as I read them the chapter, With or Without from your wonderful book. So many of them have gone through difficult times in the last several months. I felt priviledged to share such a testimony of faith. I even shared with them my first meeting with you when you told me you were tired and were going to go to the room, take off you legs and put them in the corner. My response to you was that I was going to do the same, not knowing you really were going to do it. Your attitude and response to your disability has blessed many, especially me. Thank you for sharing!!
In Christ nothing is wasted. After reading her note, take a reflective moment and ask yourself, “How has His Majesty prepared and strengthened me for a humanly impossible situation?”
