Confusion surrounds me. A jumble of thoughts on so many things I think I want to blog about. But the words get away before I can write them. A lot of ideas and notes in my journal but what do they mean? My goodness, do I sound like a crazy woman who is losing her mind? Wow I hope not. Rather I hope my brain is just on overload. So many things on my mind like impending knee replacement surgery, desires and plans to move by the end of the year and how to accomplish that, as well as my weight loss issues and so many different things I think about in regards to my walk with the Lord and what God is trying to teach me with the repetitious messages that keep coming my way via Bible reading and studies, reading other blogs, sermons and just everyday things that cross my path.
First things first. I know that taking all of these issues to God in prayer has to be my first priority. I know so well that He is a willing guide for all of us if we just ask. Spending more time in His word and in prayer and just being quiet and listening for His wise answers will be the most important thing I can do. I know He loves me and His plans for me are the best.
As for my impending surgery, though there is the very normal fear of being under an anesthetic and having a major surgical procedure, I know that God is the great physician and the outcome is in His hands. I actually look forward to having this procedure done. Once I have recovered, I will be able to do so much more! I will be able to walk more than a thousand feet without pain, be on my feet for more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time before having to sit down and will be able to straighten my leg. I consider myself fortunate to be able to improve my life in this way. there are so many less fortunate than me.
My move? Well that will happen in God’s perfect timing if it is in His plan for me. He knows best and I rest in that assurance.
All of the other jumbled up thoughts l have will, I pray, begin to make sense in good time and I can again begin to make sense in my blog posts. Loving God gives me strength; Mark 12:30.NIV Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. Leaning on God I will not be tired. Isaiah 40:31 NIV but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on the wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
I hope I have not completely bored you with this and have not proven myself to just be a crazy woman! 😀 Thanks for listening dear friends.
