My Body Aches But that Will Never Stop Me

I Put My Best Foot Forward

I really convinced myself over the years I don't get sick

For all this time I have been very blessed

Then recently things changed

My body didn't just bounce back like it did in the past

I told my body to listen to my mind and do what it is meant to do

Why isn't it working ?

I have had a touch of being sick before and within days my body would recover

Not so

I ached

I hurt

I felt the pain I have never felt

I believed and still stayed strong that I don't get sick

As my body became more and more defiant

Challenging my every thought

So I dug deeper and held on to every notion

That would bring me a speedy recovery once again

I had the momentum going after all these years

Don't fail me now

You have some nerve

I would have this same conversation in my mind or even out loud

Weighing all the pros and letting all the cons slip away

I will do everything in my power to return back to good health

How every day is a breeze no matter what you do as long as your healthy

So I continue to be strong

For it is the only way to be

No if's or doubts

Just absolute certainty to think of the positive

Rise to the moment

Then be who I am destined to be

Good hub Dream On. As we age our bodies tend to take longer to recover, and we do seem to get ill more often. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Pains can keep you from simple tasks and a positive mind can get you going. If you tell your brain you are not able to do you won't do.

MsDora I feel the strength in numbers. Focusing on what makes me smile. I connect into spirit and energy.sujaya venkatesh Healing starts in words, thoughts and prayers. My body will tune into the rhythm of my love and needs.Jodah I feel for others who experience such great pain and sicknes . Not to be on one game because an outside force that makes us weak and vulnerable . I clear my mind and think of simple beauty. A beautiful breeze that carries me away. The sun shining bright. Innocent animals roaming around showing the first signs of spring.The stillness of the mountains that display their great size and the lovely landscape that stretches far and wide.DDE Remaining calm and soothing my temporary woes with my favorite juice and fruits.Patting my cat giving her the kindness and love she deserves. Watching her cuddle in favorite spot so contented and happy knowing she is loved. Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and support. I will continue to experience little changes that will lead to the wonderful feeling of well being.Taking the time to support others who have faced many setbacks and hard times hoping they will also find it in themselves the energy to feel at peace again. Maybe today you can find old joys with such pleasure you feel the excitement and the freshness of a homemade loaf of bread. Ready to be eaten and shared by all.

Dream On. I admire your honesty dear bro. It takes allot of faith and practice to keep the body down and the Spirit of God with ours in His truth.He has paid the stripes for our healing. I have stood on healing for 10 years for a progressive illness in my body. I still stand on it. I believe one day it will be gone. I know it will be one day. I pray it is before Jesus returns. I know that our Lord has blessed me in huge measure and I have very good days. Even the difficult days are a blessing. I do not have all the answers. I know what the Bible says. God told Paul His grace was sufficient enough the three times Paul asked for healing. I have thought of that often. Perhaps God wanted Paul to remain dependent on Him in all things at all times with physical handicap or not He would get Him though the tribulations and trials. I know God is faithful. I have learned to live with what is going on but I keep going on. I am humbled and so grateful for the good health I do have. For the grace of God I easily could be 6 ft under. I choose to remain thankful for what I have. It is all a gift. Gods greater purpose I do not always understand.

I am praying for your healing. I am in agreement that you will have a full and speedy recovery. Your are so right our health is so major. It can really limit us. But in it God loves us still and in all things, He draws us to Him. The great Physician.

My Love Dream on In Christ. I do pray all is well with your precious family. May God bless all of your comings and goings brother. DO stop in for a visit. I have not seen you around for a time. I do not make it to hubs near as often as I would like too as led I come over to visit, read or write. I am grateful to read your awesome writing. It is fresh and living water, humble and heartfelt.

'The humble will be exalted and the exalted humbled.' Matthew 23:12

Hugs Galore bro, Skye.

skye2day I have just read your touching comment. I believe your comment alone could heal me. You are so right about Gods incredible ways. I have no right to complain after so many children have been sick at a young age. I was a healthy child and only now a few issues. The more we share about our experiences and life the more I realize how magnificent God's master plan really is. There is not a day that goes by I am not thankful for all I have and all the opportunities that come my way. I am gong to reread your comment for the third time. Thank you so much you made my night.

I do love your attitude. And I do have empathy for you and the pain you endure. I tell myself as I live with pain everyday, that God is preparing me for something special - perhaps he is even teaching me something. When I am in the most pain, I thank God for all my blessings. And I see people my age so much worse off. All I know is this: there is a purpose and it is not my will, but His will be done. Glory to God!

So very right. I have gotten so stiff with the bad winter weather which has made me stay at the PC more often because where would I go in the cold and snow. Finally the snow is gone but the rains have come. lol Can't wait for good weather and long nature walks.

I admire your optimism. However being in my forties my body is constantly getting run down and sick. I pray that I will get better, but some days like today for instance, prayer did not work. I know my body is trying to tell me something and I know when something is wrong. For me its the wait to get Obamacare. Still waiting for that card so I can get to a doctor or specialist. Our body changes as we get older and we must listen to what is going on and seek help. Well written hub.

vocalcoach I agree with you openly and in prayer Glory to God. We don't know the master plan we just have a few instructions to live for today. Sharing and caring for others takes my mind of any troubles I find. Feeling better each day I pray for other people now that I am well.I am happy to be part of Gods plans that is always enough for me.Gypsy Rose Lee Don't let the weather stop you. When you go to sleep tonight picture you taking those beautiful walks and feel all the senations through your senses. This is one way to bring a nice day closer. You can do it whenever you take a quick nap. You would be surprised how refreshed you can feel.lisavanvorst It is hard waiting for health insurance I am fortunate to have mine through work.I heard on the news there have been some issues with Obamacare hopefully they will resolve the issues and people can get the help they need. Please keep me informed how you are doing. I only have six more months then I turn fifty. I remember when fifty was my mothers age. Listening to our body and adjusting to changes when necessary,Thank you all for your wonderful comments and suggestions.
