Do you ever get frustrated because things are moving too slowly in your life? Many people don't realize that building a foundation for success does not happen overnight. It is a slow process in which you are constantly working and learning. After all, that foundation must remain strong, even in times of failure or crisis. This takes time! You may have to remind yourself that "failing" is only failure if you quit; otherwise it's a learning opportunity. So don't worry if your life seems to be moving in slow motion. Concentrate on building a solid foundation and learning from your back steps.

The are natural consequences that accompany every choice we make in life. Some opportunities inevitably pas us by, but we can take advantae of others. Many people feel powerless, but this is rarely the case - some oportunities just require a little thinkng outside the box. Today, reflect on the doors you are opening in your world and which on you are willing to set goals and take steps toward them. Rarely does fullfilling over hopes and dreams happen overnight, but you can take onetiny move towards them each day.

"The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live."

Enjoy Life

But we all, with unveiledface, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, first as by the Spirit of the Lord.   (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV)

I think the greatest ragedy in life is tolive and not enjoy life.  If you are warring with yourself all the time, you are not enjoying your life.  God changes us from one degree of glory to another, but don't forget to enjoy the glory you are in right now while you are headed for the next one.  Don't compare the glory you are in with the glory of some friend or family member who appears to be in a greater degree of glory.  Each of us is an individual, and God deals with us differently, according to what He knows we need and can handle.

          You may not notice changes on a daily basis, but as you look back over time you will see very definite changes in yourself.  Believe that God is working, just as He said He would.  Remember, we see after we believe, not before.  We wrestle and struggle with ourselves because of all that we are not, when we should be praising and worshipping God for all that we are.  As we worship Him for Who He is, God's character is released into our lives and begins to manifest.

Lord, I will be glad today because You are changing me from glory to glory.  Thank You for working in my life.  Amen.

ABOUT TC

Posted by tc on September 27, 2010 at 10:08 AM Comments comments (2)

I am 67 years old. I have been married for 44 years and we have 5 children, 4 boys and 1 girl. We also have 3 grandchildren, 2 girls and a boy.

 


My problems are spinalstenos-is which caused the second surgery at c3-c6. A cyst at t5 was the third surgery which has left me not able to walk and other problems related to nerves below the waist. Most of of the time I am in a power chair. The spinal stenosis has advanced and was blockingthe nerves to the right arm. I just had surgery to correct that inNov of 2009. I am a dog person. My wife says we are not poor but financially challenged. I agree. My typing is done with 1 finger onleft hand.

 


Even though MRI's are very important, I do notlike them. I do take the sedation they offer but it is next touseless. My doctor does not want me to use the newer MRI's that areopen because he says they are not as clear a picture and yet in the new building they just put up they are using the new open type mri's.

 


Just dx with copd. We will be adding this to: spinalstenosis, spasticity, type2 diabetics, neuropathy, incontinence,pinched nerve at L4 rt side, degeneration spine disease, andoverweight. Lets not forget high blood pressure and depression. The two most important things are the spinal stenosis which caused acompression of the spinal cord in the neck in 2005 and a cyst whichalso caused a spinal compression at T5 in 2007-9. It took 2 years to find it.

 


In April of 2009 my wife, Cecelia came down with breast cancer. She found it early enough that it had not moved to other parts of the body. She found it in early April and had surgery,a Modified Radical Mastectomy, on April 23. She than went through 4  chemo therapy's, three weeks apart. The test she has had so far show no cancer. She is on a 5 year hormone therapy because they say the type of cancer is caused by to much estrogen. Right now she is doing great and is my health care provider. She also sometimes does my typing and is my driver as I no longer am allowed to drive.
