I have been asked to start a blog by a countless number of people. I hope that this blog can help me share how God’s love for me is helping me overcome my autism. I hope to inspire others with my hopeful outlook on life. I communicate by spelling my thoughts on a letter board. This method of communication is called Rapid Prompting Method, and it has changed my life. For years, I was unable to effectively communicate and express myself. Now, I am able to share years’ worth of thoughts with you all.
The following is what I spelled when asked what I’d like my first blog post to be.
What if I were the only one left to proclaim God’s love and grace? I would do it humbly and proud to share his mercy above. The world hungers for the love and peace that comes from him. What if I did not listen closely to his whisper and share it with the world? Think of the souls that would stay lost. It’s important to love each other enough to keep them on the straight and narrow path to heaven.
What if I said, “No, Lord, not me! Find someone else to ask to do this job. I can’t possibly do it. I have no voice. I only have a finger to point to letters. It takes too much time. People will never listen to me, I’m just a boy.”
What if I were the loveless person who doesn’t find time for God and felt like, “Who needs him?”, or the cold-hearted person that walks through life shallow and fake. That is how many are here on earth.
What if I didn’t care enough to help mankind? I could be stubborn and not listen to his call. I am far from equipped to do this massive job he has put before me. My heart tells me to do what Jesus would do. God will be with me always.
What if I love from my heart like Jesus did and share his encouraging message with the world? Will he bless me even more than he already has? I am his beloved child. He loves me no matter what. His love outshines the sun.
What if I say I will carry on and do your work, Lord, here on earth? I will bring others to Christ. I will empty my heart with the Holy Spirit upon others. I will, I will, I promise. Send me.
Love, Gavin Schultz
