A New Can of Do!
Saturday, June 14, 2008
Me and God had a deep talk last night about the weight issue....actually, He got me to shut up so He could talk, and I listened.
The number one issue I'm dealing with is diabetes - which which increases my risk for every bad health issue - as well as the weight....and when I get 'knocked down' - I binge eat....and screw myself up even more. Then get emotional about what I can't do, and I eat more. Pain, Pain, and stomach pain!
HE impressed me to work on what I CAN do, rather than wallow in what I CAN'T do.
So - even if I can't walk right now, I CAN manage my diabetes right now....and that will manage a bunch of other things right now so that when I walk again....I'll be hundreds of times better! Even if I never walk again (totally unexpected prognosis) - I will be more able to do things like wheel a 5k! and more!
So - the moral of my story is what CAN we do in the midsts of what we CAN'T do....It's that CAN DO attitude that got us this far....and it's that CAN'T DO attitude that took us down the wrong path and got us where we were. Gotta get me a 6 pack of CanDo!!! And Chugg a lug!!!
We have worth because we are - and if what we can do changes, it doesn't change the worth we have because we are. It only changes what we can do. And it could be an opportunity to do something very special that we would never have done, because we were too busy doing what we could...and missed the slower blooming flowers and growing gems.
You CAN DO it!!!
In His hands and under His wings,
