The Road Back

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.”

    Hi there charread09, keep up the good fight and do not let the enemy discourage you in your walk and don’t let him put doubt in your spirit. God will not leave or forsake you. go to this website and download the sermons available, they’re a great encouragement. especially download the one titled Believing the whispers of God
