One Day at A Time
It doesn’t matter who you are, life contains pain. And it’s hard.
Due to chronic illness, physical pain overrode my life yesterday. It had never been that bad. Strangely enough, it left as quickly as it came; but one pain leaves and another one comes. Or one is there all along. It doesn’t have to be physical. It can be deep emotions that simply hurt. It can be feelings that make me want to despair. It can be uncertainty, emptiness, and loneliness. Pain, you know.
A kind friend reminded me to take one day at a time. He said, “You don’t need to know when you’ll feel better. You don’t need to know how much of a fight this will be for the rest of your life. You can take ‘just’ today and use it to honor God.”
