Difficult To Swallow
Deep down I believe we all hate major changes. Especially when it comes to things that affect us personally. It’s amazing how one major change can turn our lives upside down. Whether it be a change of relationship, health, finances, loss of a loved one or any other circumstantial change. Regardless, it can be difficult to swallow.
I’ve now had almost 1000 days to digest the state of my health. While I’ve made countless life adjustments I’m still struggling to embrace them as permanent. I’m hoping and praying that most things return back to normal. I guess you would call that living in denial. I would call that something difficult to swallow.
I’ve concluded that anything deeply life changing takes awhile to swallow. It takes time to let go of your past normal and to embrace your new normal. Time does bring some healing even if it doesn’t fix everything. No one can speed you through this process, but you’ve got to process things one reality at a time. Then, you must realize that God has a reason for every season. What may feel like terrible timing may be God’s perfect timing.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: …He has made everything beautiful in its time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1,11)
