Today is Friday and I decided that this would be Gratitude Fridays where I would post what I'm most grateful for in my week.  I invite you to share what you are grateful for as well with me if you are most inclined to do so.

I hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th of July.  It was a rainy day here in GA but it cleared up last night and I enjoyed watching some wonderful fire works in the safety and comfort of my own home. 

I was busy doing a blitz meaning focusing in on getting some much needed work done to get systems in place for my business.  A book fell on the floor, I bent down and got back up and in that moment I had to suddenly stop and say Oh GOD thank you so very much, I was not in pain.  

 It has been close to eight months since I have actually been able to bend down or walk since my fall down fifteen flight of stairs in November and the most difficult few months that I have experienced in quite some time.

I feel that I have been tested in many areas of my life during this healing process like wanting to be in control of everything, worrying, being anxious over everything, not liking the idea that I needed to depend on others because I could not do it all on my own.  I truly was on a journey with God and he was making sure I was learning the lessons I needed to learn. 

God  spoke to me  through his word as I read proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.  I heard it loud and clear- Maggie Miller you need to stop  wanting to take control over everything and lean on Gods understanding and not your own and  Philippians 4:6-7(NKJV)Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

These two scriptures among many in the book of Psalm have helped me through my recovery process.  When I stopped worrying about my situation I found myself in and letting go of the anxiety I was feeling about everything that was not getting done and allowing God to be in full control, it was only then that I could truly experience the healing God needed to get done not only physically but spiritually.  Strengthening of my body through the Dr. and therapist God put in my path and strengthening that spiritual muscle of trusting God about everything in my life by surrendering it all to him.    

God is such a wonderful God and to experience physical healing and giving him all the glory is my gratitude moment.   I'm grateful for everyday he allows me to have and experience,  I'm grateful to all those who have prayed for me during my recovery, the many phone calls and cards I received.   What are you grateful for today?
