Books by Michelle R Kidwell Power In The Pen

A Young Woman changes her life in more than one way after an accident. She turns what could have been deemed as a tragedy into a triumph, when she gives her heart to Jesus and turns her life around...

There was nothing that could compare to serving the Lord...




I could have looked at it as my life ending, the accident certainly changed everything.  I knew things had changed, but in some ways the changes were good.  I was growing close to the Lord, I had felt so lost before, but the accident told me that I was paralyzed that I would never walk again, suddenly I was grounded and forced to think things over, when my cousin brought in a Bible I began delving into it,   I changed, it was an over the night completely changing my life kind of change, but a slow kind of change.  I was changing though and that was what mattered, and I was looking at things in a different light.

Life should not be about living a popularity contest and it certainly wasn't about college parties, I was opening my eyes to see that I should be living for Christ and trying to lead others to Christ. 

There was a time when I went through adjusting, I mean my world had been turned upside down, I had to learn to do things differently, I was forced to take a breath and relearn the things I had taken for granted before, and I had to realize that my life wasnt going to be about jumping up and going.  I would have to take more time, and in doing so I would be devoting my time to letting my thoughts go to the Lord.  I wasnt going to run at cyber speed through life, I was going to cherish each day realizing tomorrow was not a promise. 

I knew now that each day I opened my eyes to the morning light, I was experiencing a miracle, a miracle of the dawning of a new day, it made me wonder how I could ever not believe.

Like I said the accident changed things in a good way, it taught me to rethink and open my heart to Christ.

Loosing the abiliity to walk seemed minor in comparison of not giving my heart to Jesus.  I cried out to the Lord to save me while I was laying in a hospital bed, facing a different kind of life, but the greatest change was going to come within in time.  I was going to live for the Lord, and my heart overflowed with Joy whenever I sang his praises.

I am sure some thought I was in some sort of denial or that I was just trying to cope, but this was so much more than that.  I was living for the Lord, and I was happy, happier than I had ever been which I am sure people thought was strange considering all that happened, but there was nothing that could compare to the joy of serving the Lord.
