And....

Bronchitis.

I decided I needed to see a doctor today because I was feeling so much worse again last night and couldn't sleep due to coughing so much and feeling miserable, crashed on the couch all day today. Thankfully, I did go in this evening and will hopefully feel better soon now that I'm on antibiotics.

I probably shouldn't be writing this blog post right about now... mainly because I have been feeling incredibly discouraged and frustrated lately. I'm having a hard time seeing how everything will work out...trying to trust the Lord that it WILL, but honestly my faith is weak right now and my body feels like it's been through the ringer these past several weeks. It feels like one thing after another, and the stress just keeps multiplying. It's all getting to be a bit much.

Prayer is appreciated. For health, strength, and most of all, for greater faith.

Paul's secret to contentment in every circumstance? Christ strengthening him, thus allowing Paul to do all things, including being content, come what may.

11Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. 12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.…



P.S. Sorry to be such a pessimist, but I'm trying to keep it real without laying it all out there. Yep, feeling a little rough today.

I will keep you in my prayers for a healing of the bronchitis. I know how exhausting it can be as I have had it often over the years.

Don't worry about the negativity. This is YOUR blog. If we don't know you're struggling, we don't know to pray for you.

Blessings,
Betsy

I agree with Betsy. I said a prayer for you and I will continue.
You sound like you need rest and some TLC. Nothing like reading the Bible while you rest!

I will be praying for you, too. You should know that your honesty is refreshing, and perhaps more powerful because you are able to model how we all should be in difficulty: seeking support from God and others. As difficult as it is to trust in God, your prayers and God's great love shall sustain you through anything that crosses your path.
