Don't Let Time Rush By You
2011 has been yet another rough year. And I must admit, I am kind of in a hurry to see what is on the other side of this mountain. I want to do great things, make a difference in lives, enjoy Colorado and my family and find some stability. However, I feel like I need to just slow down and let God be God. He must have me here for this time for a reason. I have to continually remind myself of this. I have had such a great opportunity to meet some wonderful friends here and be an extension of God's love. You know, I have asked "what's next? what's next? what's next? Come on God....I need to know!" And after three years of this, and no clear direction, I think maybe I need to just be still and know that He has me right where he wants me.
I will still pray for direction and I am believing for great things this next year. After finding out that I may have rheumatoid arthritis, I have had a new outlook. Being in pain a majority of the time, I have purposed that when I have a good day without pain, I will do all possible to enjoy something that Colorado has to offer outside of the house. When I am in pain, I choose to cope by loving my boys and husband through it. I can't let it put me out of commission. Am I giving up hope on God's healing? Absolutely not! I believe He heals and I will continue to pray for healing. I have so many people that I would love to see God heal of their physical issues. Maybe this will be a big year of healing!!
Have a wonderful 2012! May God bless you this year! BUT...slow down and enjoy what God has for you! Don't rush through life!
