Update!

Its been a while since my last post. I have had a lot going on lately. I have been busy with homework, and I haven’t been feeling well these past few weeks. I have had a lot of treatments lately with my chiropractic neurologist. I have been having a lot of nausea, and I been throwing up a lot lately. I have been basically been having motion sickness, so we have been working on trying to fix that.

Show Me What I’m Looking For

I have been thinking about this song recently. I used to listen to hard when I was really sick. When I get caught up in everything going on in my life, I don’t turn to God when I should. It can be easy to get caught in the chaos, and my pride and think I can handle things on my own. I will always need God. I am continuing to grow in my faith and work on  turning to God for guidance.

“But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul”  Deuteronomy 4:29

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. Isaiah 55:8

God’s creation

Psalm 8:3-6 – When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honour. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet.

Romans 1:20 – For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

How beautiful is God’s creation? ❤

Looking at these pictures, and seeing this in person just makes me think how about how amazing God is.

USA soccer game

I got to go the USA women’s soccer last weekend! It was great to see them play before they left for Rio. It was a really good feeling that I was felt well enough to not only watch the game, but I was able to ride in a car for a couple hours in order to get there. That is something I haven’t done in a couple years. I am continuing to get stronger, it is an amazing feeling. ❤

Update!

Hi! I haven’t posted an update in a while, so I thought I would let you know how I have been doing. This summer I have been able to swim a lot, and I am using different muscles that haven’t been used in so long. The more activity I do the more muscle pain, and soreness I have, mostly a lot of neck pain, and that makes me feel fatigued quite a bit. I have ups and downs, but overall I have been doing well.

Tomorrow I am going to the US vs Costa Rica women’s soccer game, and I am now enrolled in college and I start fall semester, which is exciting!

Yay-kyli

Rise

Love this new song! This video honors the athletes competing in the Olympics. ❤

I love the lyrics of this song. When I think back on some of worst days when I was sick I remember being so tired of just surviving. I hated the feeling of how hard it was to get through the days. Day by day I have gotten through it, and it is an amazing feeling.
