As I get ready for a surgery on my knee this week, I have been surrounded by people who have came up to me and said you will be so glad to have it done. There are so many people who have had the same surgery and you would never know it. Folks who have had this surgery said it was a piece of cake but make sure you do the rehab. It’s all about the rehab!
You know it’s like when you buy a different car, then you get on the road and notice so many other cars just like it.
As I read my devotional for the day I got encouragement and focus.
“Go gently through this day, keeping your eyes on me. I will open up the way before you, as you take steps of trust along your path”
We will all have obstacles in front of us, and it is how we address these roadblocks that can define us.
I will always remember my first time coming into Nashville wanting to be a musician there. A good friend of mine had been in Nashville for 10 years and had just gotten a job playing piano with George Jones. He told me “welcome to Nashville you will find out how good you are not” but with that he said all you have to do is find your niche. It was the best advise I ever received.
Each of us has that person in our lives in which we can vent to, someone to be vulnerable with, someone to hold us accountable. We need to be thankful for those people in our lives who keep us balanced.
There are days and times where we will have the weight of the world on our shoulders. Its not “if” it will happen., it is when it will happen and how we react to it. Most of the time we think we are in control. One of my favorite quotes is “You want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” When the time comes where the weight of the world is on our shoulders, are we turning to God for guidance? God’s presence enables you to face each day with confidence.
So as I go to have surgery this week, it is like I have the full confidence in my surgeon and the staff. But I know through my faith God is present and what ever obstacles I have, God will guide me through them.
See you in a few weeks. I was going to say I would be in rehab but let me be clear, I will be re-habbing my knee.
What are you focused on? Who are you focused on? If you focus on the love of Christ and its will you will succeed.
Ephesians 3: 20-21
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus through out all generations, forever and ever amen.
