A mom with a baby and toddler is in severe pain. She cries out to God and what happened is a demonstration of how He wants to be involved in your life. (Charisma archives)

As a result of desperation not only for Him to answer the longing of my heart for healing, but for Him to use my pain for the healing and freedom of others, He has graciously granted me the opportunity to share in great detail and vulnerability the path of healing He and I traveled in my recently published book, In His Footsteps.

All God truly desired was for my heart to be desperate for Him and nothing else. Not the fear I was accustomed to resorting to when I needed to feel safe, not others' approval of me, and not me trying to figure out what was going on in my life. God's says to us in Jeremiah 29:13 , "You shall seek Me and find Me, when you shall search for Me with all your heart."

Who knew that desperation could produce such beautiful and life-altering results? God did. He wants us to know it as well. What is on the other side of your desperation? When earthly answers are empty, heaven has many. God seems to have a way of showing Himself strong in the lives of those who have no other option but Him!
