I Declare Victory
I told my wife “hey it’s time for you to get up and get the kids ready for school.” In between her snoring all I got was a “huh.” I then looked at my watch and realized it’s just 12:19am, not 6:19am as my sleepy eyes thought before. As bad as my body is hurting I thought for sure it must be time for my 6am medication. However, it’s only been two hours since I took what would usually give me a full nights sleep.
My entire body is aching, my hands intensely itching, and my head just shaking. I’ve got to get this nerve pain settled some how, some way. This seems to be the story of my life. While my wife is laying down fast asleep here I am once more sitting up flooded with pain.
After spending nearly 6 hours straight in the tub earlier I really don’t feel like getting back in it. So, I’m praying for the nerves to settle. There really is nothing else that I should take at this time. I feel like a truck hit me. I wonder when I’ll get relief and if this is where my life is headed for good. My body needs rest so badly if it’s to ever heal. Lord Jesus, in the eye of this storm I claim your total healing over my body. In your Mighty name I claim victory in the midst of feeling defeat.
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.”
