This Morning I am at home while my family is at church. I am working through 2 back to back autoimmune flares. This weekend has been rough, lots of Pain, lack of energy, brain fog…. bleh. But life goes on, and so must I.
While I was puttering around this morning in my empty house, I put on my Pandora worship station, and this song was the first one to play. If you know me in real life, you know I’m not a crier, but these flares tend to also mess with my emotions a bit. All that to say, I burst into tears.
I was so overwhelmed with how good God is to me. Even in the middle of this stinky flare that is causing me pain and limiting my ability to live life at the pace I have grown accustomed, God is good to me! These last few weeks have been tough, but they have been a reminder to me of how I lived and semi-functioned for years. How I used to live 24/7 on pain medication. But God heard my prayer when I asked Him to help me to be healthy enough to keep up with my kids as they grew. He has shown me how to change my lifestyle so that I can be healthy. Obviously, I still have rough days, sometimes weeks, but as a general rule I am able to function, to keep up with my kids, to work diligently on the tasks that the Lord puts before me!
He is good to me…..
Even in the hard times,
He is good to me.
How kind the Lord is! How good he is!
So merciful, this God of ours!
