Excuse me while I wipe away the tears that are rolling down my cheeks right now…God is so good!!
The Lord has put on my heart to share the blessing of my weight loss with others so that others may be blessed through my testimony. As part of this, I’ve felt for a long time like I’m supposed to mentor someone that also struggles with their weight as I once did. I started praying about a year ago for the Lord to match me up with someone who could not only use but also desire this kind of mentoring relationship. I remember telling my mom, “how am I supposed to find this person, it’s not like I can just hand out business cards for something like this!” but trusted that when the time was right He would align all the pieces.
Late last week, I was sitting in the parking garage getting ready to get out of the car to head into work when I looked up and saw the words “It’s time” displayed on a billboard in front of me. I looked away not really realizing what I had just read and then I looked back at it and thought did I read that right? Sure enough, that’s all the billboard said was “It’s time”. I had a flood of thoughts instantly go through my mind as I wondered if this was the Lord speaking to me. As I sat and stared at that billboard, there was no doubt in my mind that the Holy Spirit was using that billboard to speak to me and I knew what it meant…it’s time to share my weight loss story and pass on the blessings that I’ve been given. I knew that there would be a revelation coming soon. This morning I saw that same billboard and smiled as I got out of the car recalling my experience from last week.
I came back this evening from taking my youngest daughter to the park to find a message from a new friend that had reached out to me and has asked me to be a mentor to her as she has been struggling with her weight. She had shared with me a few weeks ago about her weight struggle and I had a feeling at that time that there was something significant about this new relationship/person. Praise God!! He is faithful, He is trustworthy, and He does answer prayers. I’m so excited for both of us…I can’t wait to walk with her down the lighted path!
Please pray for both of us as we set out on this journey together, that He would guide each step.
Don’t underestimate the power of your testimony…your story can help others too.
God is so good!!
