Change is not easy I already know that and I’m sure you do too. Oh I do not like changes but I am sure they are for our good,and for the good of others. I’ve learned and I am still learning that God’s word is true,his ways of doing things are so far from what we want and what we think we need. I know when ever changes come into our life and we consider them bad,we want relief and we “want it now”! If relief is not quick enough some other bad boys show up,doubt and fear. They work well together I’m telling you,just in case you hadn’t noticed. It’s only been a week since my surgery and can you believe,I’m complaining already! I have been praying moreI tell ya.For some strange reason I just knew I’d be better by now,yea right, O silly me LOL!! As I’ve said many times before I know God has a big sense of humor. He just has to have because I’m his and I need so much more work! God is truly awesome and so very kind and patient. I got so tired after my doctor’s appointment and several other stops by the time I got home my knee was huge,and very painful. Then the thoughts start coming you’ll never be the same,look at you you can’t do this and that,and right now it feels like that. But I know we walk by faith and not by feelings. Regarless to what fear and doubt try to bring I’m holding on to Gods word because that’s where my strength comes from. Do keep praying for me,the pain is nothing close to what it was before my surgery. I must relax and take it slow as my doctor said it’s slow but it’s coming,it just seems so much more than I can bear.But I know that’s not true for God knows how much I can bear.The doctor said it will take a while for full recovery,but you know we’re so much like that commercial “I want it now”! But our Father moves in his own way and time while teaching us important lessons.Thanks so much for your prayers and continued support.
Love in christ Pat
