Scooter

We got my new scooter today.

 My husband and kids helped me take it out of the box and set it up.  

I rode it around the house and LugNut, our chihuahua mix, rode in the basket.

 I was gonna take it out for a spin around the neighborhood, but I Suddenly discovered that I had used up all my energy for today (as is typical for someone who has chronic illness).

 So my boys carried it back up the stairs, unused.  My husband and I shifted our gears; I went to bed. 

I will try it tomorrow.

 But that was nice. Our family hasn’t had that much fun for a long, long time. 

It felt pretty good. 🌷🌻🌷

In a good way

​W..A..I..T..ING…

Getting sick the last ten years has helped me with this.

I have a lot of practice waiting and trusting and listening in those ten years.

I’ll be honest: sometimes I hate it. It doesn’t seem to ever get easy for me to not be in control.

But over the years

as God keeps saying NO! to my request for physical healing,

I am changing.

I’m thankful.

Best

There are still times when people hurt my feelings, but then I remember that I can choose whether to be hurt or to “get over it.” I can believe the best or I can believe the worst, so why not believe the best and enjoy my day?

Trust in Him
Do you believe the best about people? Is there someone in particular whom you need to believe the best? Trust God to help you meditate on the best of all people until positive thoughts come naturally.

Word from Mm. Joyce

​We frequently don’t know what to do;

nevertheless, Satan pressures us for answers that we don’t have. He tries to make us believe it is our responsibility to solve our problem

when the Word of God clearly states

 that our job as believers is to believe—not solve our problems.

 We believe, and God works on our behalf 

to bring answers that meet our needs.

🙏

This quote speaks to me about messes with our adult kids.

Stand still and believe, self.

I will yet

see

the

goodness

of

the

Lord

in the land of the living.

Strong or just loud?

🌅🌷🌅🌷🌅🌷🌅🌷🌅

“I have both the violent turbulence of the storm and the quiet promises of God in the storm. And what I must work to remember is that something is not necessarily stronger simply because it’s louder.” Craig D. Lounsbrough

Suicidal thoughts


I claim this promise.  I am part of a spiritual Israel!  A new heritage. crafted in to the vine of Abrahams destiny because I am in Jesus Christ.

 where is that passage?  Oh. 2 Corinthians.

It is a spiritual reality.

 All the promises of God are yes and amen In Jesus, right?

​This was a very timely word for me.

 I have been struggling with suicidal thoughts.  

Part of my illness.  

 Brain damage from exposure to toxic chemicals.  

I believe that is what autoimmune disorders are: the immune system simply gets overwhelmed with all the chemicals of our modern lifestyles and goes haywire.

I am just not able to do anything!  Stuck in bed! And my thoughts prey upon me.

 Except I can pray.

 I need a word from God.

I have believed this lie: That it doesn’t affect change when I pray.

It’s hard for me to believe in stuff I can’t see.

 God change us. 

Give us faith. 

 Heal our thinking 

Renew our Courage and tell us again:

I matter.  I have a destiny.  I am NOT forgotten. 🙏


Silver lining 🌌

found another good thing which God hath accomplished by saying

no ┗(•ˇ_ˇ•)―→

to my prayers for healing over the last ten years.

There are things, you guys, which I have longed for in my marriage and parenting, and which

no 👎

amount

of good behavior, fasting, or constant prayer seemed to effect…..

Drum roll please

….

I am seeing them come true before my

eyes.
