WANTED: MANICURE MINISTRY VOLUNTEERS
So.... Mrs. Older goes in every once in a while and I get a GEL manicure.. which means that they give me a manicure and put this thick gel ... oh. you know what a gel manicure is. Well last Tuesday... I got one and by Friday two nails had peeled off. This was VERY unusual and has never happened before.
I went back to ask them to fix the two nails (willing to pay for it, of course).. and sitting in the seat next to me there was a pretty young thirty something mom. We talked.. and she was very interesting and seemed like she'd be so much fun to have as a friend. She asked what I did. I told her I write for Christian magazines.. and one thing led to another and she has.. in the last two years.. been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She is angry at God for allowing it. I told her that I can understand. And that God isn't staying away from her just because she is staying away from Him.. or something to that effect. I think I understand WHY my manicure got messed up... God loves this woman with MS.
I told her about this blog and she found it on her iPhone. I asked where she went to church and she said that from the moment she got her diagnosis she stopped going to church. She cannot understand why God would allow this in her life. She has been through so much. (I don't know the details.)
I believe she is going to read this. I believe she will. Will you speak to her? I asked her to email me.
Dear Sweet Readers... we have all been through being confused by God and His ways.
Many of us have had extended periods of time where we were afraid to admit we were mad at God.
WILL YOU PLEASE... WILL YOU PLEASE... add your comments below and encourage her by telling how you felt.. and how God got you through.
She is reading. She is broken. Will you be God's hands of healing? Will you tell YOUR story?
