I wake up by 5am every day…no matter what time I go to sleep or how much I wake up.
5-7 am – that’s it. That’s all I have. Every day. 2 hours, 3 max.
I get so discouraged when I start to feel the warmth of illness pour over my body. My feet begin to tingle, ankles, calves, thighs – it works it way up until it covers over me completely.
I have to verbally tell myself “It’s ok, you’re ok – calm down and rest – it’s ok”.
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
A sweet friend made a sign for me several years ago – it still encourages me and reminds me today is just a day. I can rest – I can use the hours I have in the morning to pay bills, do a little laundry, sit by the fire with my family drinking coffee.
I will overcome today. I will take care of myself, I will rest when I need to – and tomorrow, I will overcome another day.
Be encouraged my friends. We got this. One day at a time – sometimes one minute at a time.
