Uncomfortable In My Skin
One thing I’ve learned that is true for us all. Everything is easier when it’s not you going through it. When it’s not your nerves being fried. When it’s not your cross to bear. When it’s not your nightmare to get through. When the struggle is around you not within you.
I feel so uncomfortable in my own skin. I hate this nauseating, nerve fried feeling within me. I’m tempted to dope up with anything possible to chase away the pain. In fact, I understand why many do this everyday. They just feel miserable in their own skin. Eventually the struggle takes them down roads not proudly travelled.
In these moments, I find my strength is simply not enough. The only comfort and peace I can find is in Christ. Somehow His strength is always enough and His grace is always sufficient. All I keep doing is putting my little hand in His big hand. He holds me steady, takes me through, and comforts my weary soul. In my skin alone I would collapse and eventually come unglued. In Christ my strength is renewed and my joy is restored.
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13)
