John 15:16 New English Translation (NET Bible)
16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that remains, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New English Translation (NET Bible)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding.
6 Acknowledge him in all your ways,
and he will make your paths straight.
Isaiah 40:31 New English Translation (NET Bible)
31 But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength;
they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings,
they run without growing weary,
they walk without getting tired.
I can tell my creeping age when a common point of discussions is, "What hurts more, a hip replacement or a knee replacement?" (Although I'm pretty sure right now it has to be a knee replacement.) Just because I'm no longer a young warrior, doesn't mean I'm not still a warrior. Physical therapy is tough! It hurts! And I've come to realize that physical therapy, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia don't play well together. So I pray for strength to carry on. I've got miles to go and pounds to lose before I'm done.
This song by Unspoken is speaking to me now.
