We can always get stuck on the what ifs. When I look back over my life, I think, what if?
What if I knew then that I was wired with the Aspergers operating system? I could dwell on this, but it really does no good. As a matter of fact, just thinking about it uses up my much-needed energy.
The way that I see things is that God revealed the missing puzzle piece when it was his perfect time for my life. As I was told, "Nothing changes yet everything changes." All in that one moment in time when you hear the words, "You are exceptional. You are wired with the Aspergers operating system."
Would I change who I am to be who the world determines as "normal?" There are times that I would love to fit in, yes, but they are so rare. I attribute my faith to the peace I have within me.
If I were going to look at what ifs, I would look at what if God had not been with me every step of the way from when I was knit together in my mother's womb (already wired divinely) until this very day? I believe that there certainly would have been many more challenges in my life. Compensating, adjusting and overcoming the emotional battles would have made me a whole other person. I'm blessed. Very blessed.
I vividly remember accepting Christ when I was six years of age. He was always aware of me and my life, but I became aware then that Jesus was my best friend. I always find myself with him.
I am not a what if kind of person. What ifs are most often things that we can't change. We can learn from every situation, but we can't change the past. I know God wants me to move forward, step by step, with a willing heart.
