Help Me Soar Lord
I’m away overnight with my wife. It’s after 10pm on a Friday night. Tomorrow we’re hoping to watch the University of South Carolina Gamecocks beat the University of Florida Gators at Williams Brice Stadium. Our hotel is just ten minutes from the stadium. Hopefully, I can get a good nights sleep once my medications kick in.
Right now, I’m lying here waiting on my body to quit throbbing in pain. This cooler weather is doing me no favors. In fact it’s supposed to be a 100 percent chance of rain tomorrow at noon kickoff. Well, that just gives me even more to pray about. None of these make my body feel good. However, I knew coming this way that I might not make it to or through the game. I’m certainly going to try and enjoy something I love to watch.
Those battling with chronic pain know exactly what I’m talking about. You hope and plan for the best. Yet, you know your body will determine what you can and cannot truly enjoy. I’ve sold all my season tickets so far except for this one. This being an early game gives me the best chance to make it. And, if all else fails I will leave the stadium and watch the game on television.
“Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:28-31
