Getting out of the car for a short walk along the shores of Lake Michigan: What a Treat!! And something I certainly do not take for granted anymore. Pain and weakness have prevented me from walking for most of this winter.
It’s been a little over a year since I was first diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. This blog is the place where I am hoping to share my Journey with Jesus through the Air of This Changing Season. Hopeful I strive to be, however the days have their own labels, and sometimes I am taken to places that are beyond my choosing. Pain-and-weakness is certainly not the path I would have looked for.
My “Rheumy” (as I’ve learned the shortened term for my Specialist,) continues to search for the right medication cocktail that will put this disease into remission. Will medications #7 and #8 be the combination that is the winning number? Whether remission comes or not, I have finally begun the process of accepting that my life will never be the same. Is there anyone else struggling to come that place of acceptance?
My Scripture Passage for the day says:
“But let all who take refuge in You be glad,
Let them ever sing for joy;
And may You shelter them,
That those who love Your name
May exult in You.
For it is You who blesses the
Righteous man, O Lord,
You surround him with favor as with a shield.” –Psalm 5:11,12
A place of Joy is to be found in taking refuge in the Lord. And, being in that refuge–Is that where I will find the acceptance to embrace this Season too?
I pray that you will find Him too, as you search the paths of your own journey.
