I have been so amazingly and miraculously made.

Posting about the New Year took me a while because January is always the beginning of new resolutions. People make promises to themselves and try to manifest their desires, but sometimes they forget about them or only remember them at certain times. I looked back over the past few years and realized that I have fallen into one or more of those categories. For example, I remember vividly turning 60 years old and feeling good about it because people told me I didn’t look my age. Reaching a milestone like this is an excellent reminder to always keep our resolutions and manifesting in mind to try to make our dreams come true.

My life changed a lot in one day. I was feeling good the day before, but then I woke up in the middle of the night feeling really bad. The pain was so bad that I couldn’t move.

I was very sick for a long time, and I only found out it was sciatica. I’m amazed at how some events in life can change you entirely, no matter how big or small. The healing process was very long and challenging, and it was during this time I realized how hard getting older can be. I hate my sixties because I’m constantly finding new flaws in my body that I didn’t notice before. I have wrinkles and more fat than I want, and I find myself having negative conversations with myself almost every day.

I am sharing my true feelings because women are constantly told that they are not good enough the way they are. We are continually being told that we need to change our appearance, which is a battle many of us struggle with.

The upside is that I am finally learning to DREAM again and VISION CAST again. Going after what you desire is not a young person’s thing. I DESERVE, no, we deserve to hope, believe for better and look forward to what’s ahead. I am learning to take on one aspect of my life’s plan at a time. Finally, wisdom has taught me that I am just enough the way I am, and really physical things change and break down. NEWS FLASH fix what you can and let the rest GO.

I am always LOVED by my Heavenly Father, HE accepts just the way I am, but HE also corrects me and helps me become ALL that HE created me to be. And, after all, that is the most important.

Psalm 139:13-15
GOD’S WORD Translation
13 You alone created my inner being.
You knitted me together inside my mother.
14 I will give thanks to you
because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made.
Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.
15 My bones were not hidden from you
when I was being made in secret,
when I was being skillfully woven in an underground workshop.

No matter how old you are, it’s never too late to start vision casting again. Vision casting is the act of dreaming and planning for a better future, one that is full of hope and possibility.

Okay, have you ever felt like your life was just a series of trials after another? Just as you feel like you might be able to come up for air, the wind gets knocked out of you. Just about the time you can separate things into compartments in your mind, does the invisible shelf collapse?

That is where a lot of us are these days. Nothing is the same, the familiar is slipping away, and the earth is crumbling under our feet. I can talk about myself, so here goes. I wouldn’t say I like the way life is changing; the familiar was familiar, cosy and dependable. Yes, it is good to have a change, but I am afraid this world we humans are creating will not last the test of time.

These past few years stole from me. These past few years have made me question everything in my life. I am being asked to accept things, situations and values that stand against the core of who I am. The situations and values that shaped the person I am now I came to believe were constant. I came to think that I was safe and secure knowing where I stood.

It’s not that way, and it is difficult for me to wrap my mind and soul around it.

So with that being said, these questions remain for me: What do I do? If anything, how do I navigate my life in this climate? Do I change or do I stand up for myself? What would that look like?

Just questions and I know I will get answers. Thanks for reading. Any thoughts?

Ecclesiastes 3 New International Version

15 Whatever is has already been,
    and what will be has been before;
    and God will call the past to account.[b]
16 And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment—wickedness was there,
    in the place of justice—wickedness was there.
17 I said to myself,
“God will bring into judgment
    both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for every activity,
    a time to judge every deed.”
