Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:12
What I had to learn is that while I was physically hurt , Jesus was healing my hurt soul. Derwin Gray, Limitless Life
As I read that sentence in Chapter 3, then read it again, and again; while nodding my head in agreement saying yes. Finding myself doing this on line bible study with Proverbs31 is not a coincidence. Not irony, but God's way of His continuing work in me. The doctors said, "Oh the surgery will help and it will be a quick turn around of 6 to 8 weeks back on your feet again." Here it is now a year later and what a year it has been. I was not prepared for what the knee surgery would have nor was anyone else, but God knew. A paralyzed leg was not what I was expecting after knee surgery. Disability...No I call it healing. Healing not of my leg but of my mind and heart.
James 4:7-8, Therefore submit to God resist the devil and he will flee form you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands , you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. vs.10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.
He is the lifter of my head. My healer. My God. In Him, He gets all the praise for without Him I am nothing.
P.S I believe my healing is coming, such physical progress has been made in my leg. Things that I used to take for granite are reminders of Gods grace and goodness.
