My Legs Are Gone
Right now my legs are out from under me. Never are they feeling great. But, they are miles from great right now. I’ve had to use my cane most of the day in order to take pressure off my lower body. Saying my legs even feel more than 25 percent of full strength would be very sketchy.
Fortunately, it’s not something I’ve not dealt with before. So, past experience really helps with knowing how to cope. Each leg feels like they are full of cement. This discomfort knocks the wind out of my sails. There is no denying it threatens my feelings of confidence and joy.
It makes everything so difficult. Having to even use my cane at just 44 feels very humiliating. However, I have to swallow my pride and do whatever is necessary to move forward. Thank God I can sit down to preach back to back services tomorrow. I know the devil intends for these attacks to knock me down. Yet, I will leverage my brokenness so I can be sure to lift Christ up.
