Hello everyone, it has been five weeks and a couple of days since I broke my leg. I have at least two more full weeks on crutches or more. It all depends on what the doctor says and how it heals. I have been fairly busy the last two weeks with a couple of big remodel estimates I am putting together. I am writing because I have noticed something. My relationship with the Lord the day before I broke my leg was about a nine. I was spending time in the word and praying and doing what I felt the Lord was having me do. I was Excited about getting up in the morning to see what he has for me. I have noticed … especially the last couple of weeks that I have no fire …. No desire. I get up in the morning and have to make myself get in the word or pray. You would think with all this time I have had that I would be getting closer or hearing better, that has not been the case in fact it has been the opposite So the question I have for myself is this. Does my walk and how close I am to the Lord in direct relation to my circumstances in my life. That is how it appears right at this moment. I really hate to think that my walk with the Lord has anything to do with my circumstances. AS I have typed this He brought this passage to me.
11 Not that I am implying that I was in any personal want, for I have learned how to be l content (satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or disquieted) in whatever state I am. 12 I know how to be abased and live humbly in straitened circumstances, and I know also how to enjoy plenty and live in abundance. I have learned in any and all circumstances the secret of facing every situation, whether well-fed or going hungry, having a sufficiency and enough to spare or going without and being in want. 13 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]
