You Can’t Always Run
It really doesn’t matter whether it’s morning, day or night. Whether I work or don’t work. Whether I’m in South Carolina or California. Whether I’m in the bed or out. My nerve condition disrupts my life twenty four seven.
Most of the time, I would do anything to rid myself of this pain. There’s literally not a part of me that doesn’t suffer because of it. It affects my mind, body and strength. I can’t run from it if I tried. Because the battle is not around me, but raging within me.
Everyone has such a battle. One you simply can’t run from if you tried. Instead, you must learn to deal with it the best you can. The burden is so real you can’t afford not to pray. You have to trust that God won’t put on you more than He can handle. So, running from the battle is not always an option. However, knowing where to run in the battle is always critical.
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. (Psalm 121)
