Something to look forward to
All of us have to have something to hope for and something to look forward to. For those who stutter, their most prized possession must be the hope that they will overcome their stuttering. I like Robert Schuller's way of putting it - "He will somehow be able to take the torturing experiences and turn them into diamonds that will sparkle in the crown of your life. God will not allow the suffering, the sorrow, the pain, to be fruitless." If we look at many people who stuttered and what they did with their lives, we find many who excelled in various occupations. I doubt that they would have ended up doing the same thing if they had not stuttered. I wonder if the many stutterers who went into speech pathology would have done so if they had never had a speech impediment. We need to accept our imperfections and make something good from them.
