I’m having my coffee and reading my Bible attempting to get some energy for the day ahead of me and Tori:
Breakfast: do we eat eggs and struggle with using a fork (tremors are worse in the mornings and night) or should I spare myself those emotions and let her eat muffins and fruit with her hands?
I need strength: The Lord is my strength and my defense: he has become my salvation Psalm 118:14 NIV
Salvation:help, deliverance, safety, welfare, victory. I’m avenged, defended, rescued. BLB Lexicon.
Theratogs: remember not to ask her to be still when I’m struggling to get them on her, the reason she wears them is because she has poor balance and cannot stand completely still.
I need patience: Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly option of yourselves, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper]. Colossians 3:12 AMP
Orthotics: even though she doesn’t like them and she is going to scream she will get use to them and in Jesus name they will help her to walk.
I need hope: NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. Hebrews 11:1 AMP
Lord give me your strength today! Increase my faith and hope.
