Tis one of those day it is when my brain and body are at odds with one another. One minute my brain wins and the next my body wins. Ah, the battles that this life consists of. But this comes with the territory you know because I AM HUMAN just as you are and although you may not have 2 brain tumors to live with as I do; you do have your own whatever it is that causes you have one of those days, things to deal with. We all do…some more than others and some more frequently than others. But nonetheless, we all have them. So what to do?
Well, because of my particular situation after I finish this post I am going to lie down and rest for a while, which is one thing both my brain and body seem to agree on. LOL! Not everyone has such a luxury if you want to call it that; however, I have earned mine only because of my disability – which is not something I want or would have chosen for my life at 55 years of age. But God in his wisdom, mercy and grace has allowed me to experience what I am going through and I am not about to complain, especially after what happened to the children of Israel when they grumbled and complained against God or his leaders. Uh uh. No way. I do not care to become like burnt toast or a clump of burnt ashes because of fire falling from the sky and zapping me with however intense the heat is that God uses when he sends his fire of judgment from the sky to fall upon “sinful, rebellious, stiff necked, and hard hearted” man or the earth – (God’s words-not mine). “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:31.
So, I will not murmer, grumble or complain; besides, we are instructed NOT to do that by the Apostle Paul. Rather, we are to always give thanks to God. And you know what, I do thank God every day for my life – for who I am and what I am as well as for all that I have…though it may not be much in worldly goods, I am loved by my God, my family, my church family, and friends from all over the world…and that makes me a very wealthy man. It just does not get any better than that as far as I am concerned.
So, body and brain I hear ya and I am going to listen and do the wise thing and lay down for a while and rest – (do you think I should count sheep)? And when it is time, I will get up and get going again ready to do whatever it is that God wants me to do.
You know I love you and please keep those encouraging emails and tweets coming. I always enjoy hearing from you even if I can not respond to everyone of you personally.
Hoping the rest of your day is a good and blessed one for you and your loved ones.
Amazed by his grace,
