I am 22 years old, and I’m having my first knee surgery this Friday. My orthorpedic has said that there is a good chance that if this surgery doesn’t work, that somewhere down the line I’ll probably have to have a total knee replacement. By the time I’m 30.
Also, I have been at a major crossroads in my life, and I have actually been able to stop a few addictive and sinful behaviors, and I’ve started cutting the ties to the people in my life that have caused me to sin the worst in the past. However, I still see these people at least a couple a times a week (I live in a very small town, and I can’t even move away if I wanted to for almost 6-8 months), and the temptation, while it isn’t as strong now, to renew friendships with these people is still there. I cannot have these people in my life, at least not at this time. I pray for the strength to say no to them (and to the devil, who I think is working, and working very well, through them).
Thank you everyone, and God Bless!
