Moving Slowly

Day 1 Post Op
All my prayer request have been for my recovery; for patience and peace. The funny thing is, all I keep hearing from God is ,"despacito." Slow down...move slowly!

How many times in your daily life do you require slowing down??? We can choose to move slow or we can choose to move at full speed. Everything has a purpose and a timing. Always remember, that either speed we choose, the direction of movement is where the answer lies. Choose to move forward, and not roll back. 

Whether it be a task you are working on at work, a chore to be completed at home, an exercise repetition, a message to deliver, or a recovery for healing...how will the speed you choose impact your outlook and effect the outcome???

"Faith shouldn't die if the answers come slowly, for the delay may be God's way of working his will in your life." (Footprints of Inspiration)

Today is my Day 1 Post Operation and I feel pretty good. I know my usual self is to move fast and go, go, go. I am choosing to listen to my body and making sure not to BLT. You may be thinking, "Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato???" That is for sure what I was thinking at the hospital on an empty stomach. But, it is NO Bending, NO Lifting, NO Twisting. I am laying, sitting, and walking for circulation. The doctor mentioned that due to my nerves being pressed upon for so many years, they had hardened. Thank the Lord, he was able to provide release for them. So...for now I choose to breathe and move slowly.

How about YOU???

Taking Risks

Are You Taking Risk?

Our Faith is not to be domesticated; we are to take risk! Faith is of the unseen and trusting God even though you may not know what the outcome is. Faith is not about the outcome, for it is about the Outlook!!!! (Hope City)

So, I take my huge risk tomorrow morning with my micro discectomy, with a positive outlook and trust that God will take care of me no matter what! Living with chronic health conditions I have come to accept all the possible side effects of my daily medications, believing that taking them for relief outweighs the alternative... But, when you are asked to sign your release forms for the possible outcome of your back surgery, it becomes a little daunting!!!

So, I surrender my outcome through my faith! Faith is my decision, and not my emotions! I accept stepping out in faith requires stepping over my fears.

I will take you along my journey of pain, fear, emotions, faith, risk, surgery, healing, and recovery... What risk are you willing to take???
