Can I be real with you tonight? I’ve been sick for about a month. I can’t shake whatever this virus is.
Before you ask, yes, as a matter of fact…
I use essential oils
I’ve taken enough elderberry to turn into a flower
I’ve been to the Dr.
I’ve taken antibiotics
Still, the sickness lingers, I’m struggling and it isn’t fun when you just want to feel better.
It’s like a fog that won’t clear.
So many people live in chronic pain every single day and God has given me a new appreciation over the past month. I wish I had answers. I wish I could figure it out. I wish there was an easy button.
But, there isn’t this side of heaven.
All I know is to pray and ask God to either take this sickness from me or to give me the strength to endure until He sees time to let this pass.
That certainly doesn’t make it easy.
Sleep doesn’t come easy. Tasks are left unfinished.
I take more elderberry.
Situations like these, I can’t help but wonder what He’s trying to teach me. There have been a few times in my life where sickness has lingered and He mostly wants me to REALLY SLOW DOWN.
Maybe I’m just that stubborn.
If you’re in a place where you just want to feel better, I’m praying for you and lifting you up tonight. No matter if your hurt is physical, emotional or whatever.
A situation you just can’t fix.
A relationship you just can’t mend.
A struggle you can’t seem to overcome.
We all have something, right?
This prayer is for you.
O Lord, if you heal me, I will be truly healed; if you save me, I will be truly saved. My praises are for you alone! – Jeremiah 17:14 NLT
