So … now that you know that the first seizure happened 2 years ago, you should rejoice with me that I drove for the first time in 2 years!! The neurologist has asked me to avoid freeways, and has not yet given me the clearance to drive alone … but has given me permission to drive locally. My first drive was to visit with my mom, of course.
It still amazes me how all of us can expect minimal things from God because our brains just cannot bring forward all that He is able to do.
I know that each of God’s children are aware of His power and faithfulness, but it is not a natural action to understand that He will go beyond what we could ever understand.
The doctors have said that it would take me a year to drive – yet here I am!! OK, reality is that Lloyd won’t let me drive much alone yet – but I’m happy for the healing and improvement.
For me, the verse I kept in my heart has been Philippians 4:13 which tells me that no matter what anyone says about my abilities, I can do everything through the power of my Savior. This particular verse is clear that I can bear the things that I’ll have to face and overcome then AND I can face the things that I must do and He will give me strength.
Rejoice with me y’all. Two years with the best chauffeurs that anyone could ever ask for (Lloyd, Joe and Jeremy), but a beautiful blessing to be able to DRIVE!
Father, it is not a joke to me at all that Your strength is my everything! Every moment that I have grown weary or even fearful, You have never left me alone! Praise Your Name because You are Worthy! Father, you are absolutely everything to me and for the rest of my life, I will give you glory. 10,000 tongues would just not be nearly enough. Gratefulness is flowing from me, Oh Lord. Yes, I give thanks to you, Father. I exalt You, my Father because you are GOOD and Your love is always with me! (Philippians 4:13, Isaiah 40:29, Psalm 119: 28, 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10; Psalm 118: 28, 29)
