Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life. . . (Psalm 23:6)
. . . No good thing does he (God) withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11)
I listen to healing scriptures every night. In the YouTube video, “God’s Healing Word of Life,” David Baker says, “We have a good God.” My friends, our good God has successfully gotten me through major hip replacement surgery and the initial rehabilitation.
Yesterday, I went for a walk. During that time, I watched the movement of others. I noticed their gaits were longer, quick strides. So, I worked on my gait because before the surgery, I tried to mitigate and ease the pain using smaller strides. The pain even caused me to bend over slightly to ease the pain. As I began to take longer strides as quickly as I could, I could sense my brain was remembering my normal walking history. Now, I do not expect to just walk normally without practice nor do I expect the brain to kick in right away with a more natural interaction with my mobility joints. It will take time and much, much practice. Incidentally, I walked for about a quarter of a mile! Not bad—if I say so myself!
As I await outpatient physical therapy and much individual practice, I give God all the praise and honor. Yes, we have a good God!
