Today I’m feeling a little down; reminiscing about when I literally could run around! In my mind I can, but the reality is I’m struggling to walk. It makes me sad sometimes,almost like I’m an outcast! Seriously, when I do the average thing like walk, button a shirt, or put on shoes; the effort I give is far greater than I used to do. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful to God that I can walk, but people do treat you different when there is a physical challenge. As much as they try not too, somehow people think you can’t manage. I am able to do 95% of what I used to...I just approach it differently, giving myself more time because it takes a little longer.
God is my strength! In Isaiah 41:10 I’m reminded “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” I have learned to encourage my myself and not stay feeling down. God’s word is Life!
