“Dear Lord, I feel like I’m squan­der­ing the gift You gave me when you spared me from the blood in­fec­tion that nearly took my life. My doc­tors said it was a mir­a­cle I sur­vived, as did the friends and fam­ily who prayed for me daily. They cel­e­brated my re­cov­ery in the as­sur­ance that You’d saved me to do amaz­ing things. But more than a year later, I haven’t done much that’s amaz­ing: I’m not able to travel be­yond my lo­cal churches to speak about how You saved me, and I’ve al­ready made those rounds. And though I spent months writ­ing both an e-book and a blog about my ex­pe­ri­ence, no­body read them. I’m back to liv­ing the life I had be­fore, which only in­volves work­ing and vol­un­teer­ing as much as I can. That doesn’t seem like serv­ing a high enough pur­pose given all You’ve done for me. Please tell me what else I can do!”
