Wow, May is almost gone and time just seems to slip by quite rapidly. As I reflect back to all that has happened since the beginning of the year, I'm reminded once again how important it is to make every moment count in everything we do. When I was at home while growing up, there was a plaque hanging on the wall that said,"Only one life will soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last." It never really struck me how true this is until I was diagnosed with ALS. Looking back, there's so much more I could have done for Christ, storing up treasures in heaven. But what's past, there's nothing about it we can change. What we do have is the present and each day we are given from here on out. Since ALS, I have learned more about things like trust, faith, doubt, humility, contentment, hope and so much more than ever before. I hope by writing this blog, I can somehow help someone how to live for God in the midst of what may seem like a hopeless situation. Job lost everything but he refused to blame God. In the end, God restored everything he lost and more. In the end, God will restore me with so much more than I could ever imagine. I'm counting on it!
