This is my first official blog. I am an older woman who has been seeking the Lord for about 16 years. I have had really high highs and really low lows but He has been with me at all times this I know but lately I don’t feel that I am with Him. I have had some medical problems with surgery on my spine and lower back problems that seems to have stunted my growth where at one time I was growing with leaps and bounds. I am attempting to find my way back but having a very hard time doing that between pain, medication for pain and no more employment. He has kept me every bit of the way but I have become a little doubtful about the church experience. I have no spiritual home right now but hope to find that home again. I like to worship in a diversified environment and if I must say in the South that is not abundantly found but is beginning to change. I am far from perfect but I know that we are to have the mind of Christ and that’s what I desire. I am beginning a “new” journey” at a late stage in my life but I have always been a ” late bloomer .” As a matter of fact this year despite my physical limitations I have planted a small eclectic bed with herbs, flowers, and a few veggies as well as some container veggies. It was in watching these plants grow and in knowing that I was the tenderer of their care that I once again began to feel my existence as a child of God. I have received so much peace and satisfaction and joy from these few plants. I guess that’s what God feels (or sees) when we grow in Him.
“Lord, help us to grow and keep teachable spirits.”
