I had a virus over the last 3 days and a week of migraines before that. I feel like I am walking out of a dark pit this morning. It is so discouraging when illness comes our way, isn’t it? I suffer from migraines and it is a roller coaster of emotions dealing with those on a daily basis. I struggle with depression as a result. I know I am not alone in this pain- so many suffer from physical illnesses of every kind. This blog is for you today as an encouragement to know you aren’t alone. I was discouraged last week and someone gave me a strong word of encouragement….so today I’m giving it back to you. Keep walking by faith every day! Never doubt His love for you.
I try to see the light at the end of the tunnel but so many times its pitch black. I become weary in well doing as I try to serve only to be struck down again before I can do the ‘well doing’. I walk by faith in the darkness and with thankfulness in the light. Maybe you have a chronic illness and you can’t see a new day coming. I can tell you to hang on in the darkness and never forget the wondrous things you saw in the light of God’s promise. I praise God even in the suffering because I know He keeps his promises for my good. My migraines don’t define me, Jesus power does!
I really liked what one of my devotions said this morning…. Jesus peace is like a shaft of golden sunlight shining on you continuously. During the days of bright sunshine, it may blend in with your surroundings. On darker days, His peace stands out in sharp contrast to your circumstances. See times of darkness as opportunities for His light to shine in transcendent splendor. He is training us to practice peace that overpowers darkness. Collaborate with Jesus in this training. Do not grow weary and lose heart!!!
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” –Galatians 6:9
“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered It.” -John 1:4-5
