Moment of Clarity – #8

A few months ago I wrote a post on Facebook about how I think that God sometimes sends us signs in our daily lives that make us stop and think and completely changes our outlook on life. The experience that I wrote about on Facebook is one that has stayed in my mind since it occurred and even though it may seem simple to some the experience was very significant to me and has changed my perspective on life in several ways.

In August I went to have some repairs made on my leg braces, it is something that I had not done in a long while so I had forgotten how long I might be there. I probably should have taken something to read with me because the apps on my cell phone just were not entertaining me. I was experiencing the beginning of a migraine before I left home so the brace repair company was really the last place I wanted to be at that point in time. I was sitting there bored, in pain, getting impatient with a million things running through my mind. All of a sudden in the room where I was I saw a prosthetic leg that was made for a small child. It had been so long since the last time I was there I had forgotten that prosthetics were made there.

I took that experience as God telling me that things could be so much worse in my life. I found myself apologizing to God aloud for constantly dwelling on the things that I feel are negative parts of my life. Since God gave me that moment of what I consider clarity I have tried to stop thinking as negatively as I have in the past about the parts of my life that I am unsatisfied with. During the months since my moment of clarity anytime I have down days I pray and try to push myself back into the frame of mind of thinking and believing I am alive because God has a specific purpose for me to fulfill and a reason for placing me where I am.

My prayer since that day is that God continues to help me think positively, that he helps me to learn to not dwell so much on the negative aspects of my life while he is continuing to prepare me to fulfill his purpose for me. I pray that the moment God shows me what that purpose is that my ears, eyes and heart are open to receiving and understanding it  and ultimately fulfilling it as he wants me to.💜

Accepting One Another #5

Genesis 1:27NLT says, “So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them: male and female he created them.


I feel that God created each of us exactly the way he wanted us to be and if we could all become more accepting of one another this world would be a much better place to live. We need to understand that we all have our similarities and our differences and in order to exist together peacefully we need to accept one another’s differences. I was born with a physical disability and I completely understand how it feels to not be accepted because of a difference that other people do not understand.

I think that we would be living in a much more peaceful world if we would all just take the time to understand one another, to understand the battles we fight within our daily lives, our past struggles and the many things that make us all who we are. I have began to live life attempting my best at being accepting of the people around me. I understand that I do not have to like everything about them and they will not like everything about me but we must be accepting/tolerable of one another or we will never be able to get along.

Romans 15:7NLT says, “Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory. When we realize and accept that we are all different and can come to a place where we can be completely, honestly accepting of one another, in my opinion this world we live in will be a much better place.
