One of Those Days

"For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now... even we ourselves groan within ourselves..." Romans 8:22, 23.

Several people in my life are going through tremendous difficulties right now and I am just so sad for them.

Some days I am shocked and saddened at the sufferings of this world.

~Today is one of those days. ~

I'm in a lot of pain. I'm not sleeping. My white count is back up, my body is freaking out. Doctors are playing ping pong with me.

Some days I just want "out" of my body.

~Today is one of those days.~

"For I consider that the sufferings of this present life are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us... And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:18, 28

I know in my head that God is working for the best.

Some days I just don't feel it, though.

~Today is one of those days. ~

I'm clinging to hope.

"For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one also hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it." Romans 8:24-25.

  1. Do not lose heart. Though outwardly our bodies are wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed day by day. Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us a glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor 4:16-18 I know our troubles sure don't feel too light and momentary at times -- praying you do not lose heart! I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!!
