Frozen In Time
Written: Jan 12th, 2018
One thing about chronic illness is it’s hard to separate your days from nights. Every hour feels like a day and everyday feels like forever. You feel like life is standing still and often like it’s passing by without you. Everyday feels the same as your pain leaves you feeling like a prisoner in your own body.
You have to determine everyday to look for the positive amidst the painful. You have to believe that nothing takes God by surprise. Therefore, whether orchestrated or allowed by God, He has a plan for your present life. Just because life has changed doesn’t mean God is done with you. In fact, many times you are led to believe He is doing even a greater work during this time.
Yes you always have moments you feel like a newborn baby crying for it’s way. Yes it’s not the most enjoyable moments of your life. But, believing God is at work preparing you for an even grander plan is comforting. Believing that God is presently at work is a game changer. You might not like how you often feel, but you’re encouraged that God can even use you while you feel frozen in time.
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
