Last week’s Joy Dare was postponed due to the fact that I injured my knee. After some sulking, I have picked up right where I left off— counting God’s gifts and being thankful. Because as Ann Voskamp says MANY times in her book, “thankfulness precedes the miracle.” So again I am choosing JOY!
Now I am not saying I need a miracle on my knee. There are many worse injuries to have than a sprained knee or possible torn meniscus. But I would be 100% ok with God touching my knee with His miraculous healing hand.
