Glory Revealed Ministries is a passion of my heart! It is my speaking ministry in which I find great joy in using my personal testimony, my experiences as the mother of special needs children, our family's adoption journey, and the living Word of God to encourage, teach, and inspire my audiences.
Glory Revealed Ministries comes from a passage found in the Book of John. In John 9:3 Jesus says “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him." Jesus says this to his disciples when they encounter a man born blind. This scripture reminds me of many things, but first and foremost, it reminds me that when situations are hard or there is suffering present - We often take God out of the equation - We see the worst - We want to know who's fault it is - Or if you are like me, you often try to fix it. I absolutely love Jesus' answer here and how He turns that thinking upside down! He makes it so clear that the man was born blind SO THAT the power of God could be seen in him!! What a beautiful, profound truth! What a calling for this man's life! What a comfort to the blind man's parents! What a lesson for the disciples, as I am sure that's NOT the answer that they expected to hear!
Glory Revealed Ministries is based on that answer that wasn't expected from Jesus - this happened SO THAT the power of God could be seen. Scripture like this makes us ask ourselves, in response, a tough question - am I willing to let God use hardship, trials, disabilities, and suffering in my life for His glory to be seen if He so chooses? We often don't get to choose if suffering, trials, or adversity comes our way, but we do get to choose what we will do, or how we will respond, once it arrives. I experience this choice daily with my two special children. I can wallow, I can be discouraged, or I could see only the suffering. But, instead, by God's amazing grace, I see beauty, joy, purpose, and power like I have never seen before! Seeing what God can do and accomplish through their lives has given me incredible joy in being their mother and a follower of Jesus Christ!! - and I want to share that with the world!!!
