Paul, Prison and Paralympics


“…And then a light clicked on for me. I thought of the chains of my disability. I thought of Paul, imprisoned in his house, unable to preach the gospel openly. I thought of his goal to go to the far nations, to preach where the gospel had not gone before. I thought of his love of debate and dialogue, and being able to persuade people.”


Do you ever feel like you’re living your ‘Plan B’? I’m guest-posting today over for the beautiful Ann over at Restoring My Soul. It’s a good’un – I promise! Won’t you click with me to read the rest?

    Wonderful post Tanya –
    As someone who has no experience of such suffering, but has to inflict their wisdom on others (I preach regularly) I struggle to say things that might help.
    Can I quote you?

      Sure! That would be great! I’m so glad it connected with you – it was a real ‘lightbulb moment’ for me!

    Dear Tanya
    Oh, I am so glad to see that you are guest posting for Ann. Isn’t she a wonderful lady!
    I loved your post and could feel your acceptance accompanied with a few tears! Dear One I know what you are feeling. I was also battling with that nasty envy and also wished that could be able to do so much more. I few posts ago (urgh) I commented on the Olympics and winning a gold medal for sulking. Well, I am back at training for that event. Oh, God, please forgive us and release us. Lots of love.

      Lovely Mia – thanks so much for your words. 🙂
      I had to chuckle again at being ‘in training’ for sulking championships – I so know where you’re coming from in that!

      Much love x
