God Will Restore You
Every night this week I’ve gone to bed in pain and every morning I’ve woken up in pain. For so long it seemed my worst pain was behind me. Now, here I am again having to carefully consider every step. The longer you feel brokenness, the harder it is to swallow.
Chronic pain wears you down and can be real blinding at times. You struggle to see beyond the moment. You struggle to enjoy things that would usually be enjoyable. You struggle to operate with patience when the pain puts you so on edge. Trust me, I can resonate with each of those things so much. I’m not in my absolute worst pain, but it seems I’m back to always being in pain.
Even still, you’ve got to keep walking by faith. I’ve seen God turn my darkness to light so many times. I’ve experienced my worst days right before my best days. I know firsthand God is able. I know firsthand that God has a plan. I know firsthand “this too shall pass.” Somehow God will restore and strength you through his grace.
“In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.” 1 Peter 5:10
