Let God Use It
Laying here just asking God to settle my mind, heart and body. The past 24 hours have been full of much needed pain relief. Overall, my body seems to be back on track. I rested well last night. I hope to do so tonight.
My body is still sore from the previous days of pain. It’s like recovering from a 15 round boxing match. You just don’t wake up the next day without feeling the body blows. Even still, I know I’m on the other side of that unexpected storm. Most of my world seems to be back in order.
There’s no denying that pain drives me to my knees. In fact, it drives me towards greater compassion for others. I find pain to be a gift that helps me relate to other people’s brokenness. It may not feel great at the time. However, there’s no denying God does His greatest work in the midst of the madness. That is if we surrender fully and let God be God.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28
