“I may have disabilities: But I will not live disabled.”

 

My morning thought after prayer and meditation of August 28, 2012:

“I may have disabilities: But I will not live disabled any longer.”

I do not know how that will look or what it will take, but I am sure there are great examples for me to follow and learn from because for the few past years, my physical and emotional disabilities have controlled my life and taken so much of the joy I once had away: Directly and indirectly.

I will learn to live with them yet not allow them to control me any longer.

If you can, please help me to remember this goal for my life, in positive reinforcing ways, as I step out on this new mysterious path.

Hugs, Guy

  1. Great attitiude and Goal, Guy!! May I suggest something that might help too: Broaden the goal to read: I have been hurt (physically, mentally, socially, economicly, etc) in the past, but I am no longer going to be a victim! I am going to face everyday as a new day and not dwell on yesterday and with God’s help every day will be a new day and will better than yesterday! This was Paul’s attitude in Philippians 3: 13f “Forgettting those things which are behind and reaching for those things which are ahead I press toward the goal–the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Paul did not dwell on what happened yesterday that he could do nothing about — if anyone could have looked at himself as a victim Paul could have but he refused to fall into that mind set–he never looked back only forward! Love you— call me and I will buy you lunch. Jere
