I look at my life this year and wonder how God has been working in my life, directing me to a new beginning. I am in awe of God as I get to know God further.
My recovery had been full of ups and downs for a few months, now I am on the last of it all. There are so many brick walls you hit after major surgery. I had, had major surgery before but nothing like having a new hip put it. My prayers were answered every step of the way. My prayers are still being answered every day. I am now able to walk long distances which has been improving my confidence.
My life was put on hold for about 18 months while I waited for surgery, then the recovery time and all the aftermath of your body recovering from all the pain medication, you need to get through the day. I am not taking any pain meds now.
This year has also given me more to be thankful for; I have reached the final stage in my recovery of a long term marriage disaster. God made my life new after my surgery and I was determined to put the past behind me from the moment I walked into the hospital. It was hard but I feel now I have done it.
I am due to give a talk next month on my life; I walked into a church just a few short years ago. Having no idea on what I was doing or where it was going to lead me. God has shown me I can raise above all the ups and downs of my life; and believing in myself that I am equal to all. Turning grief into glory is a mighty challenge, rising above all challenges. With God in our life we can do anything. I still see my psychologist who has been helping me get over the last hurdle of my recovery, there has been times when I thought my PTSD symptoms where coming back. But it was anxiety due to the changes in my body.
It is hard to describe what it feels life; to me it feels as though there is a giant broom that has gone through my body making me feel new. I will give my praises to God for the new life He has given me. I know I will have scars that will rare their ugly head from time to time, but with God in my life I know I can handle the turns that Satan will try to give me..
Everyone that reads my blog would know I have a loyal companion, called Tibby she has been with me through thick and thin. She has been another gift from God, which has given me strength through the toughest of turmoils. She lost her greatest companion last year in the middle of my health struggles, but she is now terribly spoiled. She deserves spoiling as in December she turns 18.There have been many people around me, who gave me life when I did not know there was life. Enabling me to see life as it could be with God in our life.
I never thought I would be where I am today, physically and mentally after 35 yrs of D.V. In 6yrs I turned my life around and claimed my life back. Getting to know Jesus and how Jesus works in our life is amazing.(c)bjsscribbles

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises to him with the tambourine and harp.
Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
Let every thing that has breath praise the LORD. Praise you the LORD.
