Instruction of Freedom-I Cor

Boy, do I feel like I am in a race.  I really do feel like, at times, I am lagging behind and there isn't any hope in even catching up.  The last six years have been so challenging for me.  When Wayne first lost his job at CM, we just never recovered.  But, God is so good.  Looking back I can see His hand in everything.  401K paid most of our bills off, after 16 months we finally closed on our house in Newnan, we've been humbled with work that we never thought we would do, and we changed church homes with the prompting of the Lord.  We have even seen miracles within our family; Natalie had a tumor-took 6 teeth, but was benign, Anna was born with a dislocated hip, but with much prayer from hundreds of people, in one week the DR was baffled at how she could be "fine".  Wayne almost loosing his life, but lost his eye instead.  But wait, with 4 surgeries and God's beautiful hands working on him with the 2 DRs he has 20/40 vision again.  William was partially deaf and couldn't talk.  The DRs wouldn't do surgery when he was smaller due to insurance, but then we had the right insurance and God brought us to the right DR.  Once the tubes were in place, he could hear the wind and his stroller rolling in the gravel (that still brings tears to my eyes). Now, I am battling with what the DRs think is Rheumatoid Arthritis.  With all that I have seen and experienced I know that God is with me.  He will be victorious.  I am to run in the race, and run like I want that prize.  "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.  Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training.  They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever." I Cor. 9:24-25 

Lord, I know at times, I am a whining little child.  The pain is unbearable sometimes, but I know that you will heal me.  I know that you are a mighty God.  Just in my life only Lord, you have done many signs and wonders.  I can't deny you or say that you can't do something, because You can!! Praise God.  Open my eyes Lord to what you want for my life.  I want to Glorify you and make you proud.  This "thing" that Satan thinks will bring me down, isn't anything that You and I can't handle.  God you are faithful and your word says, "[you] will not let [me] be tempted beyond what [I] can bear."  Thank you, Jesus! This is nothing compared to what Jesus had to endure for me.  Lord, I ask that you let me be in constant remembrance.  I also pray, Lord, that you will help me to encourage others and when I am having a whining moment to bring people in my life that will lift me up to you Lord.  Thank you Lord. Thank you for my parents, bless them 10x for the love for my family.  I pray they will seek and find you.  I pray that you would wrap your arms around them and give them peace with success.  Thank you for my husband.  Lord, I know that you are working on him with zeal.  Lord, I pray that he will be the spiritual leader of this family.  That he will be held accountable for this house turning to you.  Thank you, Lord for our home.  I pray that even it brings Glory to your name.  Thank you Lord.  I love you.  In Jesus' name Amen!
