Been A Long Time
Well, it’s certainly been awhile since I’ve been this way. Nerve pain running throughout my body. Pain in my lower back just wreaking havoc on me. My hands and feet are constantly itching. All of this because the pain has gotten on top of me. I guess it was just a matter of time.
This week I’ve spent hours daily in the tub. I’m seeking to be reactive and proactive towards calming my pain. Not resting well night after night has caught up to me. I always hate feeling this way. Fortunately, it’s no longer always this way.
There was a time when this was a morning, day and night thing. But, I’m encouraged because it has been so long. Satan loves to get us focused on all that is going wrong. All I can see is how much has been going right for so long. God has actually given me my life back.
Fortunately, I have medications for times like these. Presently, I’m just waiting on them to kick in. It could take 30 minutes to an hour to settle down my flaring nerves. For now I’m just focused on all God has done. This has given me great confidence in what God will do. He’s proven this to me time and time again. Everything is always going to be okay in His time.
“Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
