Powering Through

 I have reached the part of my journey that may be construed as a hard part.  But I will tell you that I am learning a lot from hiking.  Sometimes the trip down can be harder than the trip up.  I am on a downward run and I'm scared of tripping and falling... right off of the mountain.  I know that it is fear that is freezing me up for what is coming.  

This past weekend I went on a hike with Glenda.  It was treacherous I tell you.  I think the harder parts were on the way down knowing that I had to stretch my too short, thick legs over a rough part knowing that I had gravity and a cliff working against me.  But you know what?  My children got me hiking sticks for Christmas.  So you know what?  I leaned on the sticks until I was certain of my steps and then I kept on running.

I am working on some academic pursuits.  I have chosen some really sturdy sticks and now when I get scared, I lean on them.  I remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Phil. 4:13)  This gives me the ability to power though the hard, scary stuff.  And yes, it is hard and scary.  I am thankful for those who lift me in prayer not even knowing the circumstances but praying that my good God support me to see me though.  I am honored to be on this incredible journey.  Thank you for thinking of me.  Thank you for your prayers.  I am so thankful to you, Reader and to God.  I'm hoping that there are good plans for me from God, for my hope lies in Him.  Praise the Lord!!!
