Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he will direct thy paths.
Earlier this year, I wrote that to ward off the effects off the aging, I started to go to physical therapy. I specifically wanted to regain the ability to raise my arms and put on a tee shirt. I did my exercises diligently there was little change so my therapist decided to concentrate on my balance. She always comes up with new ways to challenge me. After several months of doing leg exercises, she told me to wear ankle weights while I did them. I felt like doing a jig when I noticed the change. I’ve always walked on my toes, but now I walk flat footed! I need to admit though, as much as I want to broadcast this wonderful news, I’m hesitant. It might because I’m afraid my friends won’t see this change or that I fall flat on my butt because I’m so excited! Nevertheless, it’s true as I step out and tell people, they watch and celebrate with me.
God can use the things we deal with each day to develop our ability to walk with Him, the same way my therapy helped me.
How is God using your circumstances to shape you?
