I Will Fly

sheepleaping

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” ~Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie

When I was three, I spent an entire summer trying to fly, and I was sure that I could.  Everyday I climbed atop my dog’s house, 3 or 4 feet off the ground, and I would close my eyes.  I would feel the wind under my arms, my body, and imagine lifting off the ground in flight.  I would jump with full expectation of lifting and staying off the ground, each time I tried.  I had, and still have, dreams of flying, wonderful dreams of weightless joy.

And I will fly one day, of that I have no doubt.  I will fly with the angels, in the Heavens in the place that Jesus has prepared for me.  No doubts, no weight, no sorrow, only effortless joy and praise.

My prayer is that God will continue to help me fly while I’m on this earth as well.  That He will give me the strength to mount up with wings of eagles as I look into His wonderful face.

Love, Lisa

Honesty can scare because there is no hiding

Words and feelings bare and exposed

Wide open

Honesty can heal if honesty is kind

Words and feelings showing care and concern

Wide open

Honesty is found in the face of Love

The One who died for us and all our words and feelings

Arms wide open

Mercy wide open

Heaven wide open

Plans and Hopes

ireland

Planning to do this or that; a list of things to come

Thinking of what could maybe be, or maybe not be

But fixing my eyes firmly on You, my maybes fade away

Into the surety of what is, what will be, what will always be

Love, hope, forgiveness, mercy, healing

My mind quiets and settles at Your feet and in Your care.

Changes, But the Same Me, Kinda

174

Changes are weird.  We get tired of the same old thing, but when change comes, we sometimes do miss what was.

I have been having some of those big changes in the past few years.  Enough so that the blog feels like it has to change with me.  Like many of you, I am now living with a fair amount of daily pain and mobility challenges.  God has been very faithful and has carried me through each day.

So that is why I have renamed the blog, “Carried.”  When I can’t take another step on these weary legs, He carries me on to the end of my day.   I wake up anew each morning, knowing that I am stronger than before on the inside, more patient, happier with little things.  And that is all because Jesus is here beside me each step of the way.

I’m not exactly sure what this blog will look like in the coming days, as it’s definitely a work in progress.  As am I.  But I would love to encourage others that are going through the struggles of chronic pain and disabilities.  Not that I have all the answers, but I understand some of what you may be feeling.

If you need someone to talk to, or to reach out to, so that you know you are not alone, please write or comment.  I would love to hear from you.  Love, Lisa
