Good Friday evening to all of you, who are still awake! Well...my day is pretty much done. It's been a little busier today; but I have felt God in it all...praise Him!
Tonight...my husband and I were sitting in the living room, while waiting on dinner...and somehow we got on the subject of how many years I've been dealing with two bad legs...which has been 52 years...of 60 years of my life.
As we kept talking...my mind became flooded with so many memories. Can you believe that the first 8 years of my life...I never knew I had anything wrong...then one day, as I was playing with my two brothers and sister, at my great grandfather's place...the knee dislocated for the first time...and I went rolling down the hill. After 3 days of walking on a sore leg, my mother finally took me to the doctor's and I found out that I had been walking on a dislocated knee. As I sat on the exam table, I kept looking over to a small reflex hammer...never realizing that this would be the tool that would knock that kneecap back into place.
Later...while still at the doctor's...more x-rays were taken, which showed that the joint surfaces on both knees weren't formed right at birth...which was the reason why I was beginning to experience repeated dislocations.
As my mind went back to the first of 21 surgeries...I was telling my husband about a little girl; that the nurses had placed next to my gurney in pre-op. I will never forget this time; because she was so upset about having her tonsils out...that all she could do was cry. As my heart began to feel her hurt and pain, I reached out for her hand...and in the midst of my own fears, of having my first surgery; I began to comfort her...and we held tightly to each other, until they wheeled us both into surgery, where our hands separated. Tonight...as I thought back, over all these years of pain and struggle...I began to see that God was already using me...as He was now prepping me for His service.
No matter what we face...I have truly come to see that God ALWAYS uses what He allows within our lives. Nothing is ever a waste; so don't give up...for He has a great purpose in store...for the difficult moments that you may be facing.
Tonight...I thank God for taking me back in time...to connect with the real reason for these difficult times that I have faced...for so many years of my life. Thank you for letting me share my heart with you tonight...and I pray that you will find hope and encouragement, through these memories that I have shared with you this evening!
Have a good night of rest...and may the God of all peace be with you!
Bye for now...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
