Lessons are always available but learning must be intentional 

“And He said to them, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!””~ Mark‬ ‭4:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Going through a stroke has made it easier to learn some things that I may not have learnt without the stroke!

One of such lessons is that we are very fragile! Our total existence is dependent on God! I  am alive not because I want to be alive but because God continues to grant me life!

I remember the first time I tried to dress up and I could not lift my right leg to put on my pant! I burst into tears!  I had never felt so helpless! So weak! Yet I wanted so much to help myself! The feeling was not fear or pain! It was a feeling of deep helplessness! Each time someone prayed for me that morning, the tears came back! I simply remembered that I was called to help others and the tears would return! I could not bear it. I kept on wondering why am I so helpless? 

Now I know! I’ve always been so helpless! I was only being covered by the grace of God! I’m glad that God chose to give me back my right hand and leg! I’m so grateful! But now I know! I choose to learn!

Jesus said let him who has ears to hear do what with it? Hear! It means we should not just allow experiences happen to us! Let us choose to learn! Hear, see, smell… and Learn! 

Thank  you Father in heaven for choosing to give me many more years! Thank you for giving me strong hands and legs! Thank you for pausing my activities since April 8th! Thank you for all you still permit me to do! I’m grateful that you are my Father! Thank you Jesus! I’m yours always!
