Last week one of my facebook friends (and friends in real life) posted a Scripture Writing plan for the month of November. I always am able to focus better on scripture while writing it, so I took the challenge. I did two days and then was hit with a really bad bout of vertigo, so I stopped for a few days. Today I got up and am feeling GREAT, but I KNOW that if I overdo it, I will be right back where I was last week….in fact, here is what I posted on my fb a few minutes ago…..
ok, be prepared to giggle at the very beginning of this…..
So, I see and hear my kids and other young people use the quote “The struggle is real”….usually accompanied by a hashtag. Well, I just said it to myself because today, seriously, the struggle is real! I am feeling great today! THANK YOU LORD!!!! And thank you prayer warriors! I quite honestly, haven’t felt this good in a LONG TIME!!!!! SO, I am feeling great! And I have a week’s worth of stuff that I’d LOVE to get caught up on…HOWEVER, I KNOW that if I overdo it, I’m going to be right back where I was with my vertigo. Baby boy is sleeping right now, and I got the salsa verde made, and the green chilis roasted, peeled and deseeded for making green chili and chicken tamales, and was getting ready to roast some pumpkins and butternut squash to get some puree into the freezer, and I realized that I really should take a break before moving onto those projects. Please pray for BALANCE today…. #thestruggleisREALLYreal 🙂
I sat and read for a few minutes, then I got up and got a pumpkin and a butternut squash into the oven to roast and 1/3 of the chicken bones that I collected over the weekend and started a pressure cooker full of chicken bone broth, made myself a cup of tea and sat down at the dining room table to do some scripture writing. My plan had been to “get caught up”…..until I wrote the first day that I missed…..I think I’m going to marinate on this passage for a while before moving on. I REALLY needed this passage today!!!!!
2 Corinthians 4:15-18 (NIV)
All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
All I can say is WOW and AMEN!!!! So totally appropriate for me right now! Thank you God for always being so faithful to speak through YOUR living word!!!!!
