Marcella had been home for a few weeks now, and she prayed the New Year would bring more postive changes. The accident that had left her paralyzed from the waist down was a real wake up call, the scars on her back from the surgeries she endured left a deeper whole in her heart at first, because she had been so wrapped up in looks. She now understood that she should have never made fun of others, who were not perfect in her eyes, she should not have made fun of those with disabilities because now she was living the kind of things they experienced.
It was a real wake up call!
Marcella had to look at the postive of this all though, she was actually happier with herself now and that was because she wasnt trying to bring herself up at the expense of others.
Marcella understood now what was matttered more than anything was her heart for God, she understood that was where her heart was, that she needed to be right with God. It didn't matter so much about the physical aspects, what she could or could not do, because life wasn't a contest about who could out do the other, or at least it should not be.
Why had it taken a life changing accident to realize that?
But Marcella knew the New Year could bring her a great change, and it could bring her closer to the Lord. Marckella needed to be closer to the Lord, she understood that now.
The fact that she could not walk was not going to matter in the end neither was how pretty she was in the worlds standards, what was going to matter was where her heart was.
