So Tough But Worth It
I just finished a really long day of ministry. I dealt with as much today as sometimes I do in an entire week. Right now the body aches a lot. Eating with continuous discipline is not easy or convenient. Even still my resolve is very strong simply by the results I’m seeing.
Staying away from toxic food and drinks has erased my fears of when my nervous system might crash again. I’m actually able to focus now that my mind is not held hostage by so much medication. It’s like waking someone up from a coma they’ve been in forever. It feels like overnight my eyes were opened and my condition became so much more hopeful.
My life right now revolves around constant discipline and sacrifice. In the midst of it all I’m constantly free falling into God’s arms. No doubt I need divine strength, discernment, and devotion to keep going. I plan to do whatever it takes to thrive. Yes, it’s extremely tough as a patient, husband, father, and for sure a pastor . However, God has never led me down a tough road that He didn’t prove with time it was worth it all.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
