Good Morning All,
I am writing this testimony in a reply to one of my friends, who wrote a reply on our Team page, Shining for Jesus where I am the Team's administrator and leader, she made a statement in reply to a motivating message about pushing forward I wrote, she talked about in spite of pushing forward she found herself going back, my reply is below; My prayer is this will inspire, motivate you and keep you going, pushing forward...
We all at times take a few steps forward and then a few back, that's ok, we just keep pushing and pushing, looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. While I was recovering from my devastating accident I kept pushing and pushing, I was bedridden for a whole year, didn't have much movement, had others doing pretty much everything for me, but in the end push gave way to shove and step by step I got out of that bed, first it was slow, all I could manage was for a few moments in a power chair, then I advanced to a manual wheelchair with lots of added helps so I could be in it, now I am up in a sport wheelchair pushing myself on my own, have full upper body movement and am able to stand a little with holding onto something or leaning against a counter, I have only a short open window for that, but I keep doing it, I stand a few times a day, basically for seconds at a time, but I'm standing, my MS and other nerve damage to the spine and neck doesn't reverse itself but my Jesus did this for me, He has brought healing step by step and little by little, I still have chronic pain which I take meds for which allows me to keep moving, it may be limited in some ways, but this gal is moving, I give God all the Glory for what He has done for me.
The bottom line is keep pushing and pushing, in the end we win with Christ Jesus our Lord!
