So, I woke up this morning feverish, achy, and beat. With it being a ridiculously busy weekend at the Hood, I prepared for work. Now I am at work, still feverish, achy, and beat.
It’s interesting what sorts of lessons you learn when you feel like this. First, my comfort needs to be found in the Lord. The one thing I want most right now is a simple hug; who wants to hug a sick girl? Another thing that would be lovely right now is the strength to do my job; it’s not there.
So rely on the Lord, I must. I also must say that as much as I hate being feverish, achy, and beat, I like being brought to this place. The place where you know that the Lord is asking you to fight for Him. Fight for righteousness, fight to remember promises we have in the Word. This is the place where I know that a failure to cling to Christ will result in more than aches and pains. I must not wallow in self-misery; Christ didn’t.
Update: I’m still working on that long post. I’ll probably end up breaking it into sections; a series, if you will. To wet your appetite, I think it’ll be called, Just Another Sweaty Boy.
