In The Valley


You would think I’d be used to this by now. But, you never get used to something that keeps you miserable all the time. Every night especially feels much like a nightmare until my medication finally drifts me off to sleep.

Right now my entire body feels like it’s vibrating. It’s as if my nerves are ringing a bell within to let me know they are still not doing very well. The aches and pains are so great they demand my full attention. And, once again I’m reminded that God needs my full attention.

I desperately want to move on, but you can’t dodge pain in this life. All you can do is ask God to help you through it. As my first physical therapist once told me “sometimes you’ve just got to walk through the pain.” He was so right! So, here I go continuing to walk through the pain over 2 years later.

Am I exhausted? Yes! Am I miserable often? Yes! Am I sure God will continue to carry me through these tough and uncertain times? Absolutely Yes!

“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.”
Psalm 23:4
