Woke up not feeling great. Tongue feels too big for my mouth and thrush seems to be coming back. Several lesions starting and I feel slightly congested. I don’t feel THAT bad, and will probably function as normal today, but all these things make me worry for where I may be headed in the next few days, and I had lots of plans this week.
My morning devotional (through Joyce Meyer) was very helpful in adjusting my attitude. So I want to share it.
“Through Christ Who Strengthens You
Philippians 4:13 is a very popular scripture that is often quoted out of context. It says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” That doesn’t mean you can just do anything you decide to do because you want to do it. Paul was talking specifically about how he was able, through the power of Christ, to be content no matter what his circumstances were.
I do believe that, by God’s grace, we can do whatever we need to do in life. I think that’s a mindset we need to have. There’s nothing that’s too much for you if you’re trusting God. You can handle whatever comes your way because God promises that He’ll never put more on us than we can bear and deal with.
So keep a positive attitude no matter where you are right now, no matter what’s going on in your life. Cheer up, God is on your side. Stop being upset about things you can’t do anything about.
God wants you to know that He has an individual plan for your life, and He wants you to accept His unique plan for you and not compare your plan with anybody else’s. You have to trust God knows more about what you need and what you can handle than you do. After all, He knows you better than you know yourself!
Prayer Starter: Lord, like Paul, I want my contentment to come from You, not my circumstances. Show me every day that Your plan for me is perfect and that I don’t need to worry.”
That’s it. Good stuff. I feel like I’m ready to tackle the day, now. Gonna try to clear my sinuses with the neti pot, do some dry brushing, take a shower, and break out the Nystatin. Then fuel myself with a good breakfast.
Gluten free muesli with unsweetened almond milk. Was pretty painful, but I ate every last bite.
