One Tough Week

January 25, 2013

I will admit it:  This has not been my favorite week ever.  I am physically exhausted and emotionally drained.  I am angry.  I am scared.  I want to sit down and cry and never stop.  I want to scream and stomp and throw a temper tantrum.  I have dabbled with a few of those already.

Last night, I was doing homework for a Bible study I am in.  I read Habakkuk 3:17-18.  Don’t you love when a Bible study takes you somewhere that you don’t normally go?

I am going to paraphrase those verses for my life:

Though my ear is damaged
and my face is inflamed,
though my hearing is going
and my legs are growing weak,
though my nose is being deformed
and I am going to lose my hair,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
I will be joyful in God my Savior.

Please know that I am not “there” yet.  This is just my prayer.

Pray for me, if you are so inclined.

  1. In the right moment you’ll be there. It’s ok to cry and throw a tantrum it’s part of the prayerful process that will bring you into that moment of deep faith and trust.
