Our lives continue to change continually. Yet, many of us still are not where we envisioned, we would be. But all we have are the moments we have right now. Remove the unrealistic expectations and unfair demands of perfection you have placed on yourself…close your eyes…and just dance.
Start enjoying each positive moment to its fullest allowing all the negatives to fade away. Allowing all Of God’s blessing He has given us to be enjoyed while giving Him thanks for it all. Our father wants us to be fulfilled, happy, experience all His beauty and love. Rejoice in this and in the knowledge that you belong to the Lord the life God has as you cast every care on Him!
Prayer: Father God, thank You for the life You have given me. Show me how to fully live it without placing demands of perfection on myself. Help me to just dance, live, and enjoy the gift of life You have given me to the fullest and with thanksgiving. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Living with an incomplete spinal cord injury, Chiari Malformation, Allodynia, and now SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) all the while still being a wife, a mother, and grandmother is not easy. Yet, I know that I am here for a reason. Each day I open my eyes I am thankful for another day I get to be with my family, enjoy all the beauty around me to the best of my ability, and to have the opportunity to keep moving forward. Even on the days I feel like I am going backwards, I know that God is still with me working on me, refining me.
So, stand firm and believe that better days are coming while continuing to enjoy all the moments you can. No matter where you are right now know that each blessing is to be enjoyed to its fullest. Smile and dance every moment you can and share your moments with others every chance you get. Stay focused on the future because you cannot change what has already happened. Learn to tell a better story so that others can you never know whose life you will influence.
