Living In the Now

Monday, October 08, 2012

I am getting referred by my primary care Doctor to see an Orthopedic Dr. for torn ligaments in my shoulder and a Neurologist for my leg numbness. Naturally this threw me into an instant panic of doom and gloom and then Philippians 4 came to mind-"the peace of God shall surpass all understanding". Just when things starting to brighten up my day-getting my education off the ground, buying the house, new department that is less taxing on my body, a new relationship that is growing, my weight loss, my fitness activity level increasing, I get sideline with negative information and a little body discomfort.

Living in the now, for a right now moment. I lost a cousin yesterday, got the phone call from home saying they found him unconscious face down on the floor-he died of cardiac arrest. He was only in his mid-forties, father to my younger cousins aged 16 and 12. I am reminded how precious life is, how I struggle sometimes to this date as an adult still grieving the loss of my Mom three years ago this month. A right now moment, because tomorrow is not promised. Thinking about that loss, and there are so many others, I do not have time for a pity party of my upcoming consultations from the Doctors. I have to count it all joy that I have insurance to be able to go and get further information on the root cause of my nerve and ligament damage.

There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank God for His abundant blessings He has bestowed in my life and I give Him all the honor, the glory and the praise. I also thank Him in advance for my direct healing-in Jesus' name, Amen!

    He gives us the strength to handle what comes our way, even if we do not know how strong we really are. For you to be able to write how you feel given your current state, I say the Lord is definately present. Let God continue to be the driving force in your life and this too shall pass.

    Every day is a new day and as you stated, every day is not promised to us so we should live more, love more and forgive more. We do not know the day nor the hour and remember, the Lord does not give us more than we can bear. He walks with us and talks with us through our storms and the good. Thank God for His grace and mercy. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
