Positive Strides Forward
Other than sporadic muscle spasms, today has been the most encouraging all week. I’ve been able to study several hours without blinding pain. I’ve been able to comfort a grieving family. I’ve been able to rest when necessary. I actually feel very optimistic about things right now.
Tomorrow is the big day when I get my steroid injection. With my present degree of inflammation, I just can’t see this not giving me some relief. I’m already getting around better and able to stay relatively comfortable. I just can’t bend or twist without the pain gripping me. I’ve been making sure I don’t walk around without my back brace on snug.
I have so much more peace about everything. I just feel in my heart that God is gonna resurrect things sooner than later. If not I’ve just got to embrace He has a very big purpose for my continued struggle. Things often don’t heal in our time, but in his perfect time.
I’m so appreciative of a wife who does everything humanly possible to love me through the better and worse moments of life. There’s no doubt my health has great impact on her health. I’m also very grateful for every prayer lifted up on my behalf. Please know that I’m praying for each of you and your battles. Keep trusting God forward and I will do the same!
“I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6
