Regardless of what it is—a health issue, again;
                                      —another unexpected bill;
                                      —the pattern of things not working out;
                                      —people overlooking, devaluing, or misunderstanding you;
                                      —that deferred dream…

When that familiar “thorn in your flesh” comes up, again, what will you do with it?

You have a choice.

LORD, since You are our Savior, Healer and Deliverer, why don’t we get more immediate answers when we pray according to Your Word? 

My one, remember that I Am Love, so everything that I do is in the context of this powerful truth.

“Dr. Oh’s office called and he wants to see me,” Roger said to me as I walked into the kitchen. My heart felt like it twisted into a knot and was held by a vice for a minute. Dread is a heavy thing, I noted. I went into the other room and began to pray in the Spirit. My mind was swirling but I knew I needed to find my anchor. I needed the truth of my God.

“I am doing a new thing…”

“I am doing a new thing…”

There are many “new things” that happen in each of our lives.  New can be wonderful and exciting but there is an aspect of transitioning from the “old” to the “new” that, until recently, I was not aware of. 

 I will give you a context for my new thing, then share my “aha” which initially surprised me, and threw me for a loop. 

I got a new knee, a total knee replacement.

I am not at the mercy of my circumstances...
                                                             or at least I don’t have to be.

Yes. We all have circumstances. We all have situations and events that happen to us, that we do not prefer. That we did not overtly choose. What can we do when we find ourselves in the middle of something very difficult?

Have you ever seen a Facebook post and thought, “Wow! I wish I was there…or eating that…or celebrating that…or getting to experience…?” If you are simply inspired by what someone else is doing, great. If however, reading about someone else’s life pierces your heart with disappointment that reminds you of what you do not have, I have an encouraging challenge for you.
