Momentum Is A God Thing
Overall I’m in a really good place mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. There’s no denying that all these areas are affected by each other. For so long I was just holding on by a thread. Honestly, so worried that I couldn’t hold on much longer. You just reach a point where you can’t take anymore pain.
After countless attempts I really didn’t believe I could ever regain my recovery momentum. The only momentum I had was continuing to roll backwards. I was watching things cave in and felt paralyzed towards doing anything about it. I cried and prayed many a day. Just hoping God would put new wind in my sails.
Then, seemingly overnight God began to change things. He opened windows of relief and I dove through everyone of them. I just kept taking the next right step forward. Now, I’m the strongest I’ve been in 40 months of this battle. My eating, walking, and exercise habits are back on track. I’m getting adequate sleep and making healthy daily choices in regards to my condition. I still have so far to go, but I can only credit God for how far I’ve come. I’m still praying God might use my ongoing journey to inspire others through their valley of pain.
“That energy is God’s energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure. Do everything readily and cheerfully – no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing. (Philippians 2:13-16)(The Message)
