Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? I am thankful for today. Today indeed matters because today, after a week of being ‘under the weather’ I am actually pain and congestion free. An interesting phrase ‘under the weather’, don’t you think? Earlier this week, I realized why I hate being sick. I very rarely admit to feeling sick until I am completely bedridden. I suspect it all goes back to my ‘little’ control issue. Being sick makes me feel helpless; probably because usually I am. I need help, although most times I don’t mind being pampered. Too often I need to be reminded that I am not in control. Too often, I have to remind myself that I don’t want to be either. It is no fun being the ‘general manager’ of the universe, too many complainers. I always fail at that job anyway, too impatient, probably because it isn’t mine. At times, as we move and live, it’s not hard to forget how very little control, we actually hold. As a matter of fact, I was reminded while I was ‘under the weather’ that I only have control over my own actions.
I decide my choices, my attitudes, my behavior, my character. I decide whether the Word of God will be my standard or whether I will set my own pace. I do need the Lord’s help to be and do good but as a Christian, I have been given everything I need to be and do good. I just have to decide to do it. See… I do have some control. It’s called ‘self-control‘. Here’s a little something to brighten your day. Happy Friday 🙂
According to more than one test (two actually) I did not have Covid, but I am thankful for today, because I feel so much better today. How are you? How do you react to being sick?
