I Want To Remember Today
As I shared earlier my pain is somewhat blinding. Like it feels as if I was just recently in some terrible car wreck. As I continue to lay on my side I’m desperate for some relief. I’ve thrown all the meds I can at the pain. Now, I’m just waiting on something to knock me out.
I want to remember this day for sure. Not so I can look back and celebrate my pain. But, so I can look back later to celebrate what God has done. Look what God did when man said nothing could be done. I’m still in the fight, but I’m firmly clinging to my faith.
The reason I love journaling is it gives you something measurable. As you continually record your daily steps of faith you can see progression when you stay the course. I’m staying the course even if it’s a slow and steady grind. Today, I’m hurting really bad, but let’s see what God does in days to come. As I seek to do all that I can while trusting God to do all that I can’t.
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:12-14)
