The Struggle Is Real
Just hours ago I would’ve said I’m doing great considering. I was and still am very grateful for the blessings in my life. However, I don’t think I’ve gone an entire day all week without the air being knocked out of my sails. It never feels good. Nor is it easy to just get over how I feel.
Time has proven I simply never know when my nerves are gonna go crazy. In just a matter of seconds my nerve pain can escalate. Therefore, I’ve spent the last two hours feeling like I’m burning inside all over. The tingling is running from my feet into my face. All I have going for me is much experience and perspective with these episodes. I’m experienced enough to know I’ve got to call it a night.
So, here I am again heading to bed at 8pm on a Saturday night. I’ve taken my nighttime medications early and hoping they kick in soon. I’m well aware that many, many have it far worse than me. And, I have such a sincere compassion for all who struggle. So, if you’re struggling know that you’re not alone and I’m praying for you.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.” 1 Peter 5:7-9
