My Interview with Linda
What made you want to contribute your story to Your Life Still Counts?
Linda: When I was diagnosed with cancer I had one simple prayer, “God give me more time to love others with your love.” Sharing my story, which is also part of His story, allows me to do just that.
You definitely have a phenomenal story of miraculous healing Linda. One that will give so many others not only hope for physical healing, but hope that God truly is all He says He is. How has God opened doors for you to do ministry or touch other’s hearts since you stepped out in obedience to share your story – not just in my book, but in your own ministry journey?
Linda: I’ve had the opportunity to speak truth into lives of women around the world through Christian Life Coaching, speaking and becoming a first time author this year. My first book will is called Worthy of a Miracle: 5 Simple Truths to Believing and Receiving God’s Love, and it will be released November 2015. I share my entire story in this book and how God works in miraculous ways, while encouraging and teaching others to draw closer to God.
Having read your manuscript for Worthy of a Miracle, I speak from first hand knowledge that it is going to be a powerful resource to glorify Christ and help people believe they are not only worthy of Christ, but worthy of His miracles! I can’t wait to be able to share it on my blog this fall.
Do you feel God blessed you in a special way for your obedience in sharing your story all the ways He has opened doors for you to do so?
Linda: Absolutely! Honest, pure friendships have been inspired through our vulnerability to share our weaknesses. Christ’s love continues to transform my heart daily through connecting personally with women around their struggles.
So true. And our friendship has certainly blossomed through you reaching out to share your story with me! I know there are many examples you could share, but do you have one example of how God has used your story most recently to impact someone’s heart or life?
Linda: I recently met a women who has questioned her salvation thousands of times. She is struggling with worthiness. She is fearful to truly believe with her whole heart in the love of Jesus. I am thrilled to be an intercessor while she is falling in love with Christ.
We’ve shared about your new book Worthy of a Miracle, and that is such an exciting adventure. But what else might God have you focusing on right now, and what are you most passionate about?
Linda: As I’m preparing to launch Worthy of a Miracle, I’ve been seeking the Lord from a different perspective, a deeper place. My prayer life has done a 360-degree turnaround. Prayer is changing my life. My focus is simply to seek His face. He directs my steps minute by minute. Obedience to make my life all about Him and less of me. This is my life’s priority. am deeply passionate about getting the message out that we are all worthy of God’s love, and helping women move in their relationship with God to connect the dots — from their head to their hearts.
If you had to name one thing that you are most thankful to God for, what would it be?
Linda: The unexplainable gift of His spirit living inside of me.
In addition to writing your story and putting together a new book, which obviously takes a lot of courage and requires stepping outside of your comfort zone, has God given you the courage to start anything else new that is outside of your comfort zone?
Linda: Primarily, He has called me to face my fears of insecurity, rejection and the need of approval from others, because this is something I’ve struggled with for a long time. I’m now writing a new blog series called How To Squash the Insecurity Bug. My experience has been over and over that whenever I put myself or my struggles “out there” for other people to know about, I will be challenged greatly around that topic. So I’m daily choosing courage, believing God to change me, open my heart, stretch me and love me through all my insecurities. I believe Him for a miracle. That’s what He specializes in!I
I know every woman can relate to that Linda. We all struggle with insecurities, especially when we are feeling vulnerable or taking a risk. Thank you for your transparency! So how might people pray for you at this time in your life?
Linda: Pray Romans 12:2, and that through the renewing of my mind I will overcome my deepest struggles.
What a great verse to tuck into our hearts, and I pray my readers will lift you up in prayer with that verse. To close our our conversation, what are you most excited about regarding how God has turned your past into your purpose?
Linda: I’m excited about the thousands of lives that will be transformed as we get the message out there that we are ALL Worthy of a Miracle!
