New Life

“Super Path” This was the name of the procedure when I received my hip replacement. (In one of my upcoming blogs I will go into more detail about it. There are many differences in the way it is done and in the fact that I have no hip restrictions.)new

At my one month check up I received a copy of the X-ray. It was rather surreal actually. I saw a picture of my new ball and socket, with the necessary hardware used to attach it. Bizarre.

I have a choice to make. Even though it feels “different” it is now my new hip. It is my hip and it works 100% better than it did before. I can bend over, sit without pain…the list goes on and on. My choice? To receive it as my own. To allow my mind to receive it as new.

It is like my identity. When I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior I became new. Do I always “feel” new? Nope. Do I accept the fact that I am because God says I am? Yes.

It is a choice I make to believe it, whether I feel it or not. My “new identity” is present whether I accept it on the days that I behave badly or not.  My “new identity” is mine. It was placed inside of me, and is there to stay. I am brand new.2 Corinthians 5_17

And because I am new, I have the power of Christ in me…and can do all things in Him who gives me strength.

Like my new hip.
Whether I feel it or not.
It is now a part of who I am…and I have accepted it. I can do things I could not do before.

Now excuse me while I go walk around a block or two!

IN CHRIST ALONE

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
