Opposition is an Opportunity for Growth

Sometimes life can become soooooooooo overwhelming that it is hard to get out of bed and face the world.  Sometimes crisis knocks on your door with determination.  Sometimes your daily life routine can become out of sync and keotic.  Sometimes hope can fade quickly with every ticking second of the day.  Don't surrender to opposition.  Embrace it, have faith, conviction, determination and the stamina to overcome.  Through all stressful situations you are never alone.  God  is always in the midst and will not let you falter.  All we have to do is have faith in God's plan for us.  We are but human and can only see the situation as it presents itself to us at the moment but only God knows the outcome and we have to believe that God has his hand on the situation at all times.  We are limited but God is limitless and if we believe in him he will always guide us in the right direction to the path that he has set for us since the day of our birth. I woke  up this morning with my head churning.  My daughter is going to need reconstructive surgery on her foot and she is waiting to hear from a specialist so that they can get the process in motion.  She had already destroyed her foot 5 years ago by getting hit by a car while crossing at a cross walk and for some odd reason or fluke accident her foot twisted the wrong way and all the hardware broke.  This surgery is going to be worse then the first one and she is drepressed about another long haul to recovery and is also worried about her new job.

My son is borderline clinically deaf.  We took him to sick kids and found out that he has now lost all of his hearing.  He has an implant called a BAHA (bone anchored hearing aid) but the one that he presently has will not be suffiencient with his hearing loss so now he is going to have to have a new one.

My husband is still unemployed and is awaiting to hear if he will be attending college for a heavy equipment mechanic so finances are thin.

I have missed sooooooooo many days of work due to work being slow and constant appointments for my husband and my children.  Loosing time at work is not good as 15 hours for this week at minimum wage does not a refridgerator fill.

As my feet hit the floor as I get out of bed my ole body aches and the feelling of facing the day comes with dread.  My steel ankle throbs, my legs throb and I am physically tired from the emotional stress.

I almost let this feeling of dread overcome me when I remember that my Lord is always there and that even though things look grim I am only seeing just a small part of the puzzle and that God sees all and loves his children.  I have to gather up the strength to move forward and have faith in what God has in store for me.

A faint smile illuminates my lips as I hear a distant old hymn repeating itself in my head. HAVE FAITH IN GOD FOR THE ANSWER HAVE FAITH IN GOD..........

The negativitiy that the devil had implanted in my mind is gone and only God's presence reigns.  Thank you Lord for this day and the many more to come.  Thank you for all that you have given me.  Thank you for hearing my cry in my time of need.  I do not know what lies ahead but it is enough to know that it is in your hands and that you will never leave me.
