Ok… It’s 3am… Haven’t been able to take MMJ for 3 days. My poor body is sore, swollen, stiff, and exhausted. My brain is glitchy. I can’t sleep. Topping this morning off: I’m sick. It sure feels like Satan’s over-playing his hand. We will rejoice together when restitution comes…
Alright, whiny portion finished… Now let’s see if we can figure out a way to give our enemy a black eye by turning this into praise…
At the shelter we have to get out at 6. These days between my heart and FM, it takes hours to get my body moving in the morning. They’re a slow and painful couple of hours, getting things stretched and moving. Firstly, not something I want to do with an audience, second, it’s not something that takes well to being hurried. If I was able to sleep, it would probably be more difficult to get prepared in the mornings. By overstepping in such an overtly absurd way, the enemy has allowed me to be much more able to work around this particular issue. I’m now thanking God for allowing this hubris, not only for the private time it allows me to get moving, but also the private time for my morning devotionals. More time in the secret place means less power to the opposition.
I’m not entirely sure at the moment how to be thankful for being sick, or having neuro issues, but, then, the pain can cloud my brain a bit… I’m going to start my morning study and go from there. Feel free to pray with me. I’m currently praying for INSPIRATIONAL THANKSGIVING. I don’t know why, but at the moment it really amuses me asking God to help me see all the blessings around me, so I can thank Him. The thing is, I know He will.
The first part of my study this morning is in deuteronomy… Well played:
8 The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
- Dt 31:8
UPDATE 2: This is getting ridiculous… All the promises I already know are being thrown at me… I guess that’s because I’m a little slow at picking up on it:
22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
- Lk 12:22-26
