The past few weeks have been difficult for me health-wise. No new major health concerns, thank you, Jesus, just the same ole naggingly annoying ones that are a pain. Literally. 🙂
It seems my fibromyalgia and connective tissue issues flare the most as I am getting ready for church where I lead a women’s Bible Study. Can we say, “Opposition”?
Last week I was ready to stay home, although I knew I wouldn’t, when I read Psalm 118 which begins, “Oh, thank the Lord, for he’s so good! His loving kindness is forever.” A few more verses and I read, “In my distress I prayed to the Lord and he answered me and rescued me … The Lord is on my side, he will help me … ” then I reached verse 24.
It brought back memories of a song our son, Pie, learned in vacation Bible school. This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it …
I will rejoice and be glad when pain hits, not because of the pain but because this is the day the Lord has made and he is with me in the middle of my pain. He is on my side. He will help me. And I will thank the LORD because he is so good. Even in the pain.
Joyce Meyer says, “Don’t dread the day, attack the day.”
In a place where you are dreading the day? How about we join together with the Lord and attack it instead?
What do you do to get through those dreadful days and turn them into days of rejoicing?

This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24 (TLB)
