What a difference blogging can make

It's just been a little more than a year since I met Dawn. Yes, what a difference she has made in my life!

She and Kevin have posted a nine part series, sharing their journey through drug addiction to deliverance! Never, in a million years, as I joined Dawn in praying for Kevin a year ago, did I imagine that they would jointly journal their testimony. Yet, God is like that. When you think you are praying for one thing, He answers with abundance! I hope you have been reading their posts. You can find Kevin's posts here and Dawn's, mother's perspective, here.

Please visit their posts today; be amazed! And don't forget to leave a comment to these very brave souls who have given their pain to God to use for His glory! It is one thing to experience the valley, it is quite another thing to publicly share the depths of despair. Still, they have done just that for our benefit.

Thank you Dawn and Kevin (and Sema) for your willingness to share such a painful experience, no doubt--reliving it yet again, so we could witness God's power of deliverance! You have shared so much more than a personal testimony--you have allowed us to come alongside your journey of hope! That....is divine difference!

Thank you so much for linking us. We trust that our story is reaching folks that don't make their presence known. We will keep interceding for your own MIP (Miracle in Progress).

As I told Dawn, the whole story reminds me of the song in your sidebar!

It's very brave to share so openly and honestly about our struggles. In the end I believe someone will read it and be encouraged.

This is awesome. Just popped in, and I am filled with wonder at what God can do. Sometimes we feel hopeless in the face of life's biggest and seemingly insurmountable challenges. This story renews my hope again that God can and does deliver hard-core addicts. Hugs!

Looking forward to investigating here and at your friend's site. God is so good, even in the midst of our struggles, even when our hearts are breaking, Jesus never leaves us. He never fails. I've set up a second site in addition to Living the Adventurous Life. It's called Anna's Place, and for now is a webpage for those who are experiencing loss and grief. My prayer is those who are hurting will reach out to Jesus and know that they are not alone!

Blessings today!
