For the last several years, I have been dealing with chronic Lyme and other issues that were misdiagnosed for years. This has limited me in ways that has caused me to feel incredible disappointment, especially in my role as a mom.
You might not know this about me unless you were in my life observing what you can’t often see on the surface. We all have things like that in our lives. (Some people can be very quick to tell me why I’m not healed yet and what I’m doing wrong, which is why I have learned to normally just stay quiet about stuff like this.)
There are times I feel physically ok. During those times, I put so much pressure on myself to accomplish all I can – because I don’t know how long it will last.
As my kids have gotten older – year after year – I have grown more weary. Time keeps passing by, my kids keep growing, and I still need healed. I don’t want them to grow up thinking of me as someone who is weak and physically hurting all the time.
But perhaps there is another way!!!
Surely God can fill in the gaps. He is not limited by natural circumstances!
I suddenly have a new perspective. Jesus is so much bigger than all of this! There is grace here for this!
Father God I ask You to fill in the gaps where I have been limited. Fill in the gaps where each of us have been limited. We ask you to provide for us in ways only You could provide. We choose to step into the grace that’s here for us in our specific situations. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
