I’m Out Of Breath
I know many on here would love to just hear good news. However, the truth is sometimes life is nothing but hardship. That’s just the season I’m in right now. I simply feel terrible. Getting up, getting out, sleeping and even breathing is difficult right now. Every direction I turn right is a dead end or disappointing highway.
As I shared earlier, I knew I needed to get out of the house. I knew swimming at the YMCA would leave my body feeling much better. Well, I packed all my stuff up and headed out the door. Thirty-five minutes later I arrive at my destination. Then, I reached in the back seat to get my bag only to realize somehow it was left at home. All I could do was shake my head in disbelief as I had no bathing suit or towel.
I did attempt to walk some in this hot weather. But, that was not what would have refreshed me. I’m just in an ongoing tunnel. Anything that could go wrong just keeps going wrong. I’m now back in the tub just hoping to ease my body before bedtime. “I’m out of breath, but faith is seeing for me.” My prayers are only whispers as it takes too much strength to speak them out loud. The only thing I can credit for any strength I do have is Christ in me.
“The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.”
