In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Ephesians 6:16 NIV
In addition to what the Sovereign Lord has already allowed for this day, may He keep me and hide me with Christ in Him. May He be exalted, and be glorified in my weaknesses.
In times like this, when no matter how much you try to prepare and plan ahead; you still didn’t reach that goal.
My goal was just to get through this surgery, and recovery. I wanted to pay the bills ahead of time, and just heal. I forced myself to get up, put some make-up on, and get dressed. I know this will keep me from becoming depressed. The wound is still obviously there, but I will focus on You. I know the devil wants to use guilt to guide me, but I trust in You, and You do not use guilt and condemnation (Romans 8).
