Joy Comes In The Morning
My stimulator was shut off for over five hours. I simply had to let my over stimulated nervous system rest. In many ways things were crashing down within me yesterday. In order to get the stimulation balanced I had to deal with some extra pain. Pain from my stimulator being off and my nerves having been fried. To say my body was exhausted was an understatement. Praise God, I was able to get nearly ten hours sleep and I’m much better emotionally!
Every time satan tries to crush my spirit God steps in front of him. He uses the season to make me stronger. He uses the testing to elevate my faith. He uses the weakness to make me humble and transparent. He uses the journey to give me another God story. He uses the pain to remind me that He’s been holding me together the entire time.
I will not deny that this painful journey is like walking through Hell at times. However, I constantly get to see God’s power and grace at work. There is no denying God is at work both in me and through me. Anytime it seems I’m out for the count God rescues me up once again. While my body may feel still weathered my spirit feels strong. I thank God for the rest and renewal my body desperately needed. Thanks to any of you that prayed.
I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health. You brought me up from the grave, O Lord. You kept me from falling into the pit of death. Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning. (Psalm 30:1-5
