May 12, 2012 – Mother's Day
A day that changed my life for ever. Three years have passed. One way it feels like forever and another I still cant believe that its happened. Needless to say I have had ups and downs along the way. Wrestling with God but knowing He is faithful. I know many of you continue to pray, I am so blessed and thankful that God has placed everyone of you into my life. I keep saying to myself that God has a perfect plan, He uses all things for good and for His glory, in His time not Mine and He will never leave me. He has given us so many promises to cling to. He gives me everything I need when I need it. It's hard to understand but I need to remain faithful. Easier said than done that's for sure. You all know what I'm talking about. What separates us is not what we're going through because everyone of us will have a trail. The great divider is how we handle the trials when they come. What brings me comfort is that God can use this to help others and that through this He will be glorified. Does that make it easy, No. Do I understand why God has chosen not to heal me yet,No. Do I struggle daily, Yes. Do I have a hope in Him, Yes. Does God give me what I need to face each day, Yes. Do I questions God, all the time. In spit of me and my downfalls, He is faithful and full of grace.
What have we've been up to.....
In our new home and unpacked – cooking again
Landscaping has started- I can't wait for grass
We have a new puppy – Stanley!
Julia will soon be on the roads all by her self – She and Emily are planning a road trip this summer.
I continue to do physio 2 days a week as well as acupuncture. One of those days Mike and I head off to the pool for therapy. We have seen some progress but as I have said before progress is slow, VERY slow.
So I pray for faith and I am learning to meditate on His truth. Romans 10:17” So, then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God” The only way this happens is if I spend time in His word. I'm working on that to. Romans 8:28 “for those who love God all things work together for good” This isn't to remind or tell us that all things in our lives work for our good. God isn't working to make us happy but to fulfil His purpose. I pray daily that I will leave all things to Him and trust in His word.
Thanks to all of you that continue to lift me in prayer, yes I am still praying for complete healing I know He is capable.
