Change Is Hard
This has been a very, very long day. My body has been very unpredictable all day. Even after resting over nine hours last night. I’ve dealt with on and off drowsiness due to my extra medications. My body still has to get use to these new medications.
On a great note, i was able to spend time just breathing in God’s peace. I was able to get great clarity on what God wants me to preach this Sunday. I was able to get a lot of ministry accomplished today. So many people are drowning in so many different kinds of pain. God keeps using my brokenness to help me connect on a deeper level with others who are bleeding inside.
Unfortunately, my neurological system crashed again this afternoon. Out of nowhere my nerves had my entire body on fire. As I lay here now I’m just waiting on my lower body to settle down. So much current is running through my legs causing discomfort. It’s so challenging to explain something so few understand and even I can’t fully comprehend.
Fortunately, I know I’m doing everything I can to live my best life now. My body is having to get back acclimated to daily exercise, stretching, and new sleep routines. I’m just seeking to make one positive change at a time. I’m having to change a lot of old habits even as I walk through the pain.
One thing I know for sure my friend. None of us can get through life’s greatest challenges alone. We all need Jesus and we need each other. I pray you join me in leaning on Jesus and trusting Jesus with every step forward.
“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.” Psalm 143:10
