This post was actually written in my journal while I was in the bathtub! I am so happy I decided to bring it and a pen in.

My pain level today is through the roof. It sucks to feel like I am burdening others because I physically just can’t do something. Yet, deep down I know that each of these moments is a time that can and will be used to bring Him glory –even though I don’t see it at the moment.

I have to trust that my entire existence has a God driven purpose. Perhaps this time laid up in bed really has given me more time to reflect, think, and spend time in His Word.

Time to read one more blog.
Time to write.
Time to spend getting to know God’s daughters more intimately everyday.

Like Carrie Underwood belts out:

“Jesus take the wheel…”


I want Him to be in the driver’s seat. I need Him to be my life’s GPS! The only way I can truly experience God is by letting Him grip onto me and allow myself to enjoy the ride.


To see the forest through the trees.

To see the millions of shades of green.

To see each nail rusting and old and to think about the nails that He took for me!

His blood crimson and mixed with salty-sweat, pouring from Him as He died so that I could live. Spending Passover as the resurrected Son so that my darkest hours can be filled with light. The gentle lamb allowing Himself to die so that He could bare my sins, our sins and leave open the Heavenly gate.

The Lion fighting Satan and refusing to submit. A lion, thee Lion stealing back our flesh from Satan’s greedy hands. All while He reaches His hands out to me, like I am the prodigal son, He waits knowingly for me to turn the corner, submit to the Lion, act like the Lamb and call Heaven home. Tweet This

  1. Visiting from FMF 🙂 Love your perspective and ability to find the gifts in not feeling well. More time the reflect is a good thing! Hope you feel better soon. Hugs to you!

    • I hope I feel better soon too! LOL God has this and I have to have faith that in His timing everything will work out and that in the meantime when I am laid up, fed up or struggling to get up I have to remind myself that things could be sooo much worse than back problems. I am so grateful to have healthy and mostly helpful children, a God who never leaves my side, and unconditional love that covers me like a blanket. Even the real blankets I have are a gift, many go without and the need is greater than mine.

  2. Love your comments today. I am so sorry that you are in pain. It can be harder to cope when I am there myself. I love that song, thank you for reminding me of it. It is just what I needed in my own life today.

    • I feel like my mind is bouncing all over the place these days and I am going to be in a head-on collision if I don’t just step back and enjoy the ride! I’ve also learned that giving God the wheel and being a back-seat driver doesn’t work either. Praise God for his merciful grace!
