“I will never be able to put into words what it meant for me to have Dixie being willing to suffer with me. What a wonderful world it would be if all of us could become a Dixie in someone else’s life. When we allow ourselves to become emotionally involved in another person's life, we create an atmosphere in which the Lord can mold us to become what He wishes us to become.
“Once when Dixie was out of town, she sent me a card which I think epitomizes her attitude. It said, ‘I can’t imagine how you’re feeling, but I want to offer you my hand for holding, my shoulder for leaning on and my heart for listening to anything you have to say.’
“It was evident that God's hand was being revealed in the way Dixie and I met and in the way she was able to help me in my healing. God's hand was revealed in the way Audrey came into my life to help me validate what was real and what was not, and to begin to open up to people.
“As it turned out, God's hand was revealed in some other surprising ways as well.” (My Tears Fall Inside, page 81)
God reveals His hand in each of our lives though we don’t always recognize it until we look back on our lives—sometimes even years later. He is intimately aware of each of us and of each of our needs. He feels our pain and our heartaches. He feels every stretch of our tender souls and He loves us so dearly. He is aware of how our own choices and the choices of others occasionally cause us unbelievable pain. He sees the end from the beginning and He knows how each experience in our life can help to mold us into the incredible people we can become. How has God revealed His hand in your life?
