It’s been exactly 7 months since my back surgery. I feel like I’m at the halfway point of a very big game. I’m exhausted, I’m sore, and I wish things were easier & faster. But, quit is not an option. So, I’ve got to keep taking the next right step forward. I can’t focus on my weaknesses or speculate about days ahead. It’s about doing what is best now for my recovery.
For sometime, God has been leading me away from just praying for my physical healing. Who am I to question what He is doing while I feel so very limited. Maybe it’s not about me and more about Him. Maybe it’s more about the journey than me just reaching my desired goal.
I will keep faith walking forward. I will keep trusting God with every step forward. I will continue to pray daily that my journey might encourage someone else’s journey. And if it does it’s worth every struggle.
There are many things I don’t know, but I know this to be true. Confession is healing, perspective is critical, and God has a purpose for every moment.
(1 Peter 4:12-13)Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in as much as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.
(Romans 8:28) And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
