Continuing to heal my heart

August 18, 2015

One year ago today I was preparing for my mom to have surgery the next day. It was also the first time that I felt some chest pains that did go away after a few minutes. However, I was thinking, “Hey God, did you not look at my calendar?! Remember, I came home to Texas to help my mom with her surgery.”
Mom and I both had a series of health struggles during these months. In many ways, I am better. However, I neglected some of the areas of my recovery. One of the huge gaps was in consistent exercise.

I knew in my head what I needed to do, but I just did not get it done. Partly it was fear, I knew that I needed to push myself, but how hard could I push without triggering another heart attack. That is part of what is good in my new program: I wear a monitor while I exercise. Also, I have to show up just like for a class, and that helps me to get there to establish a new and healthy habit. Pray that I will follow through well with a good and consistent exercise program.

The emotional and spiritual battle also continues to rage. It has been a year of stress and change. I continue to lean on the Father, but still need to let God’s peace reign in my heart and to heal my heart.
