What a Promise!

If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) lately, you'll know that I haven't been well.

In fact, you'll know that I've been battling a lung infection. 

A dry cough accompanies the lung infection.  And, so does chills, and sweating.

As you can imagine, I have been limiting my going out.

Not just because I don't want to infect anyone, even though I don't.  But also, because I don't want the cold, damp weather to affect my breathing.

Although, I have been mostly staying indoors, life hasn't been easy.  And, it hasn't been kind.

Anyone who knows me, or who has been reading LwL for any length of time, knows that I have trouble sleeping.

As I wrote about previously, when I first became ill, I had trouble sleeping.  Then, a week ago Monday, I spent almost the whole day, sleeping.

In fact, on that particular Monday, I had trouble even moving from my bed to my recliner chair and back again to my bed after a couple or so hours.  It was like I was totally exhausted.  With no physical energy.

Sleep is supposed to be night time relief.  And, sleep is supposed to help your body relax, to heal.

Where has mine, been?

I cannot even tell you how many nights I've spent awake.  All night long.

Of course, on some of those days, I've taken a nap for a short time.  Or, have missed watching some television in an evening, because I couldn't stay awake.

But tell me, who can survive on a half (1/2) hour sleep here, or two (2) hours sleep, there? 

It seems to me, that I've been able to.  Otherwise, I wouldn't be here on earth to write about it.  :)  :(

If I sound frustrated, it's probably because I am. 

It's the middle of the night.  I am awake and writing this LwL entry.  Instead of being asleep.  Resting.

Being frustrated doesn't help anything.  Or, anyone.  Not even me.

After all, God is in control of everything.  He knows what I need.  And, will provide it.

Just as He told us, in Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Yes, God knows what my needs are.  So, I'll just take a deep breath, and trust Him.

Just as you should do.  After all, He know what your needs are, also.

And, He shall supply for all our need, according to His riches in glory, by Christ Jesus.

What a wonderful promise this is!

To you.  To me.  To all who belong to Him!

This shows us that He will always take care of us.  Whether sick, or in good health.

Yes, I am counting on Him.  Trusting Him.  For my sleep, healing... and for everything in my life. 

Are you?

If you're not, I would suggest you read the New Testament portion of God's Word, the Bible.  There you will find out just how much He loves you.  And, what He expects of you.

May God bless you, and lead you to Christ, if you haven't been, already.

Until next time...
