test results are back

My EEG came back normal.  

No further testing required, the only remaining evidence of the seizure is - no driving.

I wanted to thank you for all of your faithful prayers.  

I have always heard it said that you don't know how many friends you have until you need something.  And friends appeared out of the woodwork the past few weeks as many called, and wrote and prayed.

It is humbling to feel physically vulnerable - deep down inside we all feel infallible at times that is until  bad health hits - it's quite a reality check.

Hebrews 4:9
So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.

I now LONG to experience sabbath in Christ.  The true sabbath was not just a rest one day in seven but involved a complete change of life.  In Him we have a Sabbath that never ends.  We are living the sabbath rest, well, at least we are supposed to be.  I am determined with the Lord's help to demonstrate a more balanced life.
I remember hearing leaders I looked up to in the past talk about how they ran too hard until they began to experience weakness of one kind or another that slowed them down.  That moved them to a Godly pace.

There are many ways to be a Godly example - perhaps the most Godly among us simply have a better understanding of what God intended for our bodies and minds to be capable of.  They know how and when to rest.  And their Godliness comes as a reward of slower pace.  

Perhaps when Jesus says, "Follow Me"  He means just that.              Follow....don't pass.
