I’ve had a rough go of it lately. I just want you to know that I am so thankful for those of you that have been praying for me and sending me notes of encouragement. I have greatly needed your support.
If you aren’t familiar with my health problems, you can read this post. For some reason, it has really accelerated over the last year and I have become a shell of who I used to be. I struggle to make it through each day. I am so thankful that God is in control. I am so thankful that he is sovereign enough to take care of everything around me while I try to find a balance of pain medicine and natural health supplements.
I would like to request prayers from my sweet friends, if you don’t mind. I could really use it. I love my life and my family and all that God has given me. I just wish I could enjoy them more. Instead, I am declining so quickly, it is hard to enjoy. If I didn’t have a God holding me, I wouldn’t have made it this far.
I cling to Scriptures that I know to be true. My God is truly faithful.
I have always loved this image because it represents so much. It shows Him holding “me”. It shows the mallet in “my” hand that nailed Him to the cross because of my sin. It shows His great love and passion for “me”. It also shows “my” weariness and weakness and how much I need Him to hold me.
I don’t want pity. I am happy and know that God chose this path for me to be brought the most glory. I am completely ok with that. I just would love the prayers and love so that I can feel encouraged. Even Paul had a “thorn in the flesh”, right? So, no worries on that account. Again, just pray for my spirits to be encouraged
Thanks guys (:
