This past 2 weeks I have been extremely tired yet I have done very little. I think that several weeks of going back and forth for radiation even though I had a driver just drained me. This past Friday Roseanne drove me to the doctor for blood work and then we spent the day in Burgaw, me in the wheelchair and Roseanne pushing me along. We stopped at Walmart on the way home and I used the electric chair to get around, it was a nice day with a cool breeze. Later that day the nurse from the doctors office called to say that my hemoglobin had gone up from 8.5 to 9.3! and I can tell you that this was all God because I have done nothing nor had the doctors given me anything to help with my blood levels. I added myself to my prayer list and I know that God has his hands on every part of my body, I also believe that He spoke to me and told me I would live through the year. Now I mentioned that I have been really tired which has forced me to stay home and rest a lot, sitting still and resting is not something I’m good at so I began praying and asking God why I was so tired. The answer I got was simple: you need rest to do my work. Who knew? So instead of fighting it I’m just going to roll with what God has planned for me. I feel like I should be doing something but as a good friend pointed out that would be ME work not GOD work so I’ll be content to rest at the feet of Jesus until He calls me to do more.
I am praying for God to show me the truth of my circumstances and to show me HIS perspective on my life so that I may be the servant HE has called me to be. In order to hear God I must be still and REST! Funny how the two work together. Sometimes it’s real easy to obey God and other times (like sitting still) can be a bit trying but then isn’t that what growing in Christ is about? Obeying when it’s not so easy.
Isaiah 32: 17-18
“And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;”
