Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.

Isaiah 58:8

I’ve kept this verse in reserve for a while, because for the past several months I don’t feel like I’ve been doing any healing – I’ve just barely been surviving.  But now I feel a change coming.  My pain is still constant and my limitations still very frustrating, but I can now see further than the next few days in front of me.  I can imagine a day when I will have less pain.  I will probably never be completely pain-free, but I can imagine having less pain and enough physical stamina to make it through a light workday.  That’s what I’m visualizing and working towards. Baby steps.  And I’m thinking about it . . . a lot . . . because I want my life back.  So I’m just trusting in God’s timing and getting ready for that fabulous day when the pain does finally start to decrease.

    1. Thanks, Sharon! I was at my primary care doc’s the other day for a routine checkup and we reviewed the past few years and he said, “You are a very patient person.” I nearly fell off the exam table laughing! I told him, “I am probably the LEAST patient person you’ll ever meet . . . but I’m learning.” 🙂

  1. Love the title of your blog….and also the verse you shared today my hubby and I just read yesterday as we read Isa. 58. I too pray for your pain to leave quickly and healing to take place in Jesus name.
