Having enjoyed 11 ministry trips to other countries, 4 of which I traveled alone, it could be said I embrace adventure. The 4 trips I traveled alone were my favorites ones because they gave me the opportunity to see how God comes through for us. It was awesome to experience those just God and me moments.
So when chronic illness caused me to consider buying a cane, it was not something I embraced. I still haven’t bought one.
The other day a married couple from church brought some food to me. The husband saw my recycling and offered to take it for me. I thanked him and he took it for me. In my city we need to take recycling to one of many locations. I was pleasantly surprised he offered to do so.
Shortly before I woke up Tuesday morning, I dreamed that I had a package and needed to walk home. As I was considering the long walk with a bad knee, I saw I friend of mine from church with his pickup truck. He gave me a ride home.
Normally I don’t put much stock in dreams. But as I prayed Tuesday morning, I felt the Lord showing me he will help me through friends at church. It felt peaceful, but I have to admit as a person who has not slowed down or let limitations hinder me for over 25 years of living with chronic illness, it is an adjustment.
I don’t know where this is going. I do not intend to slow down. Perhaps let others join me in the journey.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
