Do you suffer from dyslexia or know someone who does? Revelation 12:11 promises, “…we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony”. What Jesus has done before He can do again. As you read Steven McLeish’s testimony, be expectant for Jesus to release overcoming in your life too!
Dyslexia bows to the name of Jesus
At school I was diagnosed with being dyslexic and most of my life I let this hold me back. I thought I was stupid and felt like a failure always falling behind in class. My expectations for a career were low, although I had big dreams and desires in my heart to write.
I gave my life to Jesus when I was 14 at youth group and my life was changed. However, I had one problem with growing spiritually…I could pray, serve, and fellowship, but could not read my Bible. I tried using an audio bible, but I could never focus. Then one day I was praying in my room with the Bible in my hands. I asked God to help me read it, and what happened next was a miracle! All of the sudden, I felt something like scales come off of my eyes and I could read! Finally, I could understand what I was looking at! Since that day I read three to four books per week.
This miracle encounter with God allowed me to take off the labels the world had stuck on me. Instead, I believe what God says in His Word! My days went from not being able to read the Bible to having the privilege of being a pastor. I had low expectations for the future of my career and now I’m walking in my calling! ,
I may still struggle with spelling but God has given me an amazing wife, Charis, to help. Today I write blogs and perform spoken word which has taken me around the world. I have been able to preach the Gospel on TV, radio, and podcasts. God truly makes all things work together for good (Romans 8:28)!
“Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.” – 1 Corinthians 1:27 NLT
Let’s go after all god has for you so he can get all the glory it’s all about Jesus!
An invitation for healing
