I was speechless… I literally had NO voice! I couldn’t say a WORD! Now what? And, it was conference week!
Health is a super undervalued thing… until you DON’T have it anymore. It’s so easy to forget how GOOD it feels to feel good!
I guess I got BUSY and forgot to take a few days of my vitamins. Then, I caught a cold that tried to take me OUT of the Women’s Conference in West Palm Beach.
Two days before I was supposed to speak… I had no voice except for a few strained SQUEAKS.
What was I going to do?
The event had been planned over a year ago. Tickets were sold. Other speakers and entertainers were on their way to an event that I was hosting. (Was this a test?)
I really had to WALK BY FAITH.
Here’s the crazy thing. God has this wild way of performing miracles when we place crazy faith in Him!
People said, “What are you going to do?”
I just whisper/squeaked back to them, “God is going to show up. I’m going to have a voice.”
Sure enough… God showed up! When I stepped out on the platform, I didn’t just speak, I preached as if NOTHING was wrong. Won’t He do it!!!!!!!
The whole ordeal renewed my commitment to take better CARE of myself. I’d forgotten what it felt like to NOT feel good.
MY excuse was that I was too BUSY and I got in a hurry.
But the slowdown afterward made me realize, I’m NEVER too busy to take the time to do what it takes to be healthy!
A good thing is… I feel like I have MORE compassion. If you’re not feeling well, right now, put it in the “comments” and I will pray for you.
Want to learn more about feeling good? Read the chapter on “Living Strong,” pages 29-31, in my book, “Hi God, It’s Me Again.”
