Out with the Old, in with the New

My new chair is on the left. I just wanted to show the difference.

This post has been anticipated for a long time. My new wheelchair arrived in one piece on Wednesday! I was so excited.

I woke up with butterflies in my stomach because the day that I had only dreamed about was finally a reality.

There it was. I could see it. I could touch it. Everyone can celebrate when you can see something with your own eyes, but many lose faith when things don't go the way you think they should. I'm living proof that good things come to those who wait. I had praised God for meeting my needs MONTHS before we even knew if the e-motion wheels would be approved.

You see, these wheels are something special. They are so special that only a handful get approved each year. I made up my mind awhile back that it was OK if I didn't get the e-motion wheels. The main thing I needed was a better seat-anything else was just a bonus. I'm so excited for a seat that's specifically designed to be sat in.

So, are you scoffing at this post? Are you saying, "That could never happen to me?" Refocus. Whatever you need, thank God for it now. You have to have His praise continually on your lips. God can do abundantly more than we can ask or think...if we just believe. God has already paid the price for our needs, sins, sicknesses, etc. He's waiting on us to get our mind out of the way.

I turn another page in this book called life. I'm having to get adjusted to this new chair, but it's worth it!
