Multiple Sclerosis -

I hate how it feels to feel blocks in my brain from the lesions that are eating my nerves.  It is none the less a trial that God has given me for this life.  It is none the less a trial that I must live with and one that I know I can handle.  Real stretching comes from God giving you life experiences such as this.  Real growth comes from the life God calls you to lead.  I will never be perfect at written communication, I will never have good balance. I could never walk a balance beam without falling off with great injury.  I have a hard time running after others I have come to the acceptance of this being ok because of all the blessings I do have.
That is truly the key at least in my life.  Physical bodies fail and break. Emotions run rampant! One can't depend on their mind always.  These are parts of the situations of life.  It is how you handle all of those issues that makes you beautiful and unique.  God breathed from the beginning.

I have learned more from this life trial than any action put in my way by man and that is how God designed it. Blessings to you and yours.

Praising through the storms of life!

Is bigger than
The air I breathe
The home we'll leave
And God
Will save the day
And all will say
My glorious

Two weeks of praise with the same song can be so entirely different.  A month ago we sang this song when my Grandpa was getting better and finally able to come home.  I was praising God as he was helping my Grandpa get better.  I was praising him that the storm had a beautiful ending.

How odd that seems now.  A month later,  My Grandpa died.  I was going through sorrow and mourning.  At church this was the opening praise song and for about the first four bars I was thinking about how different it would be to sing this song than the last time I had sung it.  It was very different but as I sung it God reviled himself in a most amazing way.  Because Grampa had gone home to be with his eternal father he had been freed from the pain of this life.  Because he was Now in heaven he could be with me even through the 300 mile distance.  The idea of God as an all coming super hero is in this song and it's analysis is something interesting to me because it could give those that do not get revelation the wrong idea about God entirely.

I don't know how I feel about this praise song.  Like many it does occasionally miss the mark but thats due to human hands  and human minds involved in the process.  Please give me your take on this if you so happen on this blog.
