I have walking pneumonia…again. About three years ago I had walking pneumonia for the first time. It became a catalyst for the health problems that I have today. After having walking pneumonia the first time I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
You know when you go through something in life and it is so bad that after you go through it you continually compare things to it. Like whatever you are dealing with at least you aren’t going through blank again. For me that blank would be walking pneumonia.
Yet here I am…again.
I’ve decided to trust God even though I don’t understand why I have to be so sick again. I may never know why and that’s okay. I don’t have to know the answers.
It’s been a few weeks since I wrote this….I am feeling better. I’m back to work. I still tire easy and my chest feels heavy at the end of the day. The good news is since this is my second time around I know when to take it easy. For the most part anyway…
I was watching Elevation Church and this quote stuck out to me. I’ll let you think about it. I know I still am.
I try and do as much as I can for the Lord or at least I thought I did. I have tried but have I listened? Have I trusted? Have I rested in the presence of the Holy Spirit?
Have I been straining and stressing instead of trusting?
Sometimes we have to tear down our faith to the foundation. Take a good long look at it. God will test your foundation, so you can see the cracks. Then together with Him you can rebuild.
I think you have two choices when you find your foundation cracked.You can either turn to God and become even closer or turn away. Be aware that this choice exists. Make your choice wisely.
Oh man, does this hit me where I am! So, so true. I just wrote on my anxiety vs. my trust as well, because God has been dealing with me in that area lately. You are so right – it IS a choice. Blessings and hope you are back to normal soon! I’ve had walking pneumonia and it is not fun.
Sometimes the Lord wants us to find Him in the secret place and that’s all He wants. It’s like we are Martha trying to do all of these things for Him and we get stressed out. Jesus wants us at His feet. When we rest in Him we can do other things as well 🙂 I’m working on this.
