Looking Back Helps
Even after hours in the tub and a lot of water digested. My hands and feet are itching. That old familiar surgical spot is aching constantly. There doesn’t appear to be any quick fix in sight. A little surprised the meds I took hours ago don’t have me totally comfortable.
Now, I’m not lying here freaking out. I’m uncomfortable, but I’m not feeling desperate. This season’s worse days don’t compete with last season’s average bad days. Back then the pain never ended and no hope seemed in sight. Now, I know this is just a rough patch that God will counter sooner than later.
So, it’s very important I remember days of old. Not to live in the past. But, to draw great faith from the past. I used to live in the fiery furnace morning, day, and night. Now, I actually get surprised when I have great discomfort lasting more than a few hours. Thank you God for taking me through those unbearable days. Now, I know I can trust you with anything.
“I remember the days of old. I ponder all your great works and think about what you have done.” Psalm 143:5
