'Cause You Gotta Have Courage

Michelle honored me with the Courageous Blogger Award the other day. Thank you!

I think we all understand that it is Christ that gives us the courage and strength to tackle and overcome our trials. He allows difficult circumstances to enter our lives for our own good. I'm not saying I always like what is thrown at me, but I cling to the fact the He knows what's best in my life and His plan is perfect. It's up to me as a christian to seek His will and to follow it.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

There is nothing--no circumstance, no trouble, no testing--that can ever touch me until, first of all, it has gone past God and past Christ right through to me. If it has come that far, it has come with a great purpose, which I may not understand at the moment. But as I refuse to become panicky, as I lift up my eyes to Him and accept it as coming from the throne of God for some great purpose of blessing to my own heart, no sorrow will ever disturb me, no circumstance will cause me to fret, for I shall rest in the joy of what my Lord is--that is the rest of victory!

What a perfect award for you Dear Lady, Thank you for your comment. I e-mailed you back but it came back undeliverable . i do appreciate your care. I am not going into all the journey but I think on my other post I listed some answers to the health question. There is a link on the side bar. Life Restored. I am trying to keep and gain mobility with this knee. i have a loss of bone behind the knee cap. I am considering the shots to gain mobility. I am sorry for the hard battle you must have gained a great capacity for compassion in such a journey. Hope your day offers pain free moments to savor.:)
