A Reminder

{ image source }

Gentle Reader,

It’s hard to write tonight. Woke up this morning with pain and stiffness everywhere. Really. Everywhere.

The soreness in my fingers doesn’t allow me to do much typing right now, but I feel compelled to remind you that you are beloved. God draws you to Himself with unfailing kindness (Jer. 31:3). I don’t know where you are or where you’ve been, but I do know that you’re never further than one step away from the Majestic Creator. The One who formed the mountains is delighted when His children look for Him. He is there to be found.

Go and seek Him.

My journey to faith. (15)

  1. Sorry to hear you’re in pain. My newly diagnosed arthritis (I love getting older) can be a chore but it’s in my back so I can still keyboard (I guess they don’t call it “typing” anymore). I rented a DVD from the library for my son and I (he has a number of disabilities due to his service in the Marine Corps) called “Yoga for Arthritis.” It’s a unique perspective. 😉

    Each morning I say a short blessing the moment I’m awake:

    “I gratefully thank you living and existing King
    for returning my soul to me with compassion.
    Abundant is your faithfulness.”

    It helps to remind me not to take waking up, no matter how I feel, for granted.

    Blessings and a complete healing from Heaven.


    1. What a great blessing to recite! I may just have to steal that.

      Yoga and stretching are definitely good for pain/soreness, especially in the joints. It’s also good in that you’re exercising, but it’s not draining. Hmmm…this girl should probably get back on a routine…


  2. So sorry to hear of your pain. I’ve had a sudden onset of intense joint pain in the last few weeks and don’t yet know why. I have a new understanding of what people are going through now. I’ll be praying for your recovery.


  3. Hi Marie!
    Thank you for sharing such sweet words of encouragement. It is so selfless and kind of you to extend love even in the most painful moments. I am grateful for your compassionate heart! I’d love to talk with you sometime, as I am also a Christian with severe CFS. I started this blog for much the same reason; perhaps you will come by sometime 🙂

    I am praying that Christ will comfort and soothe your every pain!

    Peace to you,
