Story of how God used me

A chapter in the book She Did, Right -Now She Does Write

Thank You God For Using Me

by patcelaw

This is the conversation I was having with God as He was asking me to do something I didn't think I could do. But, He proved to me that with His help I could achieve what He was asking of me.

I spent about 8 months not wanting to do my story because of missing childhood memories. I would not sleep and when I did fitly sleep I was having bad dreams and I felt as though I would lose my mind, so I finally yielded to God. As I took the steps required to submit to the call to do my story, my mind became settled and God blessed me with giving me the memories I had lost at nineteen years of age.

 
Thank You God For Using Me

God said to me, "I will not let you go,
I have work I want you to do."
I said, "God, what talent do I have
to offer You that You could use?"

God said, "Child you are good with words
and with my help we can put them together."
I said, " Okay God, I understand you want
me to write praises to You."

God said. " I also want you to share your life
as a testimony on a radio drama."
I said, "But God I don't remember
much of my childhood which is required."

God said, "Child, trust me
and I will give you those memories."
I said, "Okay God, I know now what
You're asking me to do."

So God said, " I need for you to do it now,
I will help you along the way."

So as I began to write the story,
and as the memories I began to recall,
many times from my eyes,
tears would form and fall.

Now God said, "Child, I am pleased,
you did as I asked you to do,
and my grace is going to
flood you like a river."

And I said, "thank you God for seeing
something in me You could use,
for taking a sinner like me,
to use for Your Glory
as You had me tell my story."
