This morning I finished the supervised therapy on my ankle. The ligaments are healing great and easch day I notice more and more strength returning to the ankle. I still have a lot of work to do I order for it to return to normal strength. And now the tough part starts. I no longer will have Pablo telling me what exercises to do and how many. It’s now on me to complete the training and to grow each day.
On the wall over at D1 where I was working on my ankle on the wall are these words
what you do today….
Will determine your tomorrow
I am glad I have read those huge words for weeks, because I find them to be so true in so many things– my ankle, the technical understanding I use for my employment and my spiritual disciplines.
We have a lot of control over the usage of the gifts we have been giving and each day the decision we make will impact our tomorrow’s. I’ll be thinking about this each night I don’t want to do the band exercises to continue to strengthen my ankle, or when I don’t want to practice my faith by trusting and forgiving another, or when I don’t want to prepare myself for the temptations with which I know I struggle.
Today do something your future self will look back and thank you for!
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. (James 1:22-24 NIV)
