This is for Robie, who visited my blog earlier this week and left a comment:
I was touched by what you wrote and I thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. You are indeed right when you said there is always someone a little worse off than we are. I too tell myself that quite often. While I'm not in a wheelchair, I have chronic health conditions that limit what I can do, especially since I had bilateral strokes in July of 2010.
I used to wonder 'why me' and now I say 'why not me?' Things happen to many of us that we'd rather not have to deal with. What I'm learning is that my attitude makes a world of difference when problems surface. I want to be known as someone who trusts what the Lord does in my life ... who ever seeks to give Him honor and glory for each day. May I be remembered, if I'm remembered at all, as someone who loved the Lord and loved His people.
Robie, I encourage you to keep in touch with me. I so appreciate hearing from others! One reason I write is in hopes it will minister to other people...those I know and those I don't.
May the Lord meet each need and may you come to understand your purpose in this life.
