About Me

Overland Park, Kansas
My name is Kate, I'm 19 years old, and on March 4th 2010 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. I was told I had to get my left kidney removed- praise the Lord I have two! A month later they took out my kidney and told me the tumor was benign! I worship a God of miracles! I am a desperately dependent follower of Christ, who feeds on God's Word like manna! I know the healing hand of God and I believe He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me! I started this blog to communicate continued prayer requests, keep people up to date on my health and daily life, and most importantly share how Christ's love is transforming my heart everyday! Thank you for all your support! God Bless! PS I love to know who is reading the blog so comments are much encouraged and loved :)

the power of testimony

I have spent the last two weeks intensely working in the K2 kitchen. It was much harder than I thought it would be. I found it difficult finding my purpose sometimes while washing pots and pans on "bacon day" (aka three 5 ft stacks of pans coated with interminable grease). It was hard to see the fruit in my work, especially when I have a heart for discipling girls and somedays the only connection I got with younger girls was, "how much blueberry fluff do you want?" . I knew the Lord gave me a story to tell of His power and His sovereignty and His healing. I daily asked him to provide an opportunity to share my testimony and by about the 10th day I was there I began to lose heart but I just kept praying. Finally, on the last night, all the kitchies and i were doing crafts in the cabin and somehow I think someone asked if I'd share mine. It was all the Lord. I had been praying that when the moment arrived to share HIS story, that I would have the right words to say to put the focus on Him and not me. God provides. When I finished sharing, the girls response was such a blessing to me. They immediately turned to praise God and not my "neat story". It made me think of Romans 1:20 "For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse." Meaning that when people look at God's creation, He reveals his divine nature and power so that there is no excuse not to worship Him then and there. I feel like the same is true for testimonies. God writes EVERYONE of us an amazing story so that we can share of how his invisible attributes, eternal power, and divine nature. It is such a tangible way to witness to non believers as well. Our testimonies are such a blessing and encouragement to each other so don't be afraid to share yours.
Well thats my nugget. I'm actually leaving for the airport in an hour for Durango, Colorado to visit Dalton (my big brother). He's been gone all summer and can't wait to see him :) Have a lovely thursday!
