On this pathway tread with pain Lord have mercy Lord be kind I offer my words shed with tears Lord have mercy Lord be kind He receives my thoughts covered in weakness He has such mercy His is so kind --bg
A few weeks ago my friend Mandy, from Mandy and Michele, asked if I would share in an interview series that she would be hosting. She has invited several of her friends who deal with chronic pain to share their stories of walking with pain and finding the comfort of Jesus in the midst of it.
I didn’t know that on this very week, when she would share my interview, I would be facing the long-awaited RA infusion. Just a few days ago I found out that I am scheduled for that infusion on this Friday. But yesterday I came down with a sinus cold, and my anxiety was ramped up several notches. I won’t be able to receive that infusion if I am sick.
And yet, here are my own words, given from the Lord to share with others, that are meant for me too. Mandy asked me to share the Scripture that had come to mean so much to me here. And the voice of Jesus is echoing back to me in this place today:
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.2 Corinthians 12:9
He has been with me on this journey, every step of the way, and He is still giving His sufficient grace today. If you have had experience with chronic pain, I invite you to join me over at Mandy’s site to read the rest of the interview by clicking here.
