Only Weak For Now

Ever have one of those days – or weeks – when your body just lets you down?

It can be so frustrating to have all the willpower and get-up-and-go of your normal self, but be stuck in the middle of postpartum, or surgery recovery, or Lyme’s Disease, or arthritis, or … fill in the blank. 

I was really encouraged by these verses this morning:

The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.

I Corinthians 15:42-44

God certainly gives us all kinds of help on a daily basis, here and now.  So think about this: the Lord who gives us strength to “rise up on wings like eagles” here and now is already preparing a glorious home for us in heaven, and will give us bodies to match, able to enjoy Him and his paradise forever. 

Somehow that knowledge alone – if I let it – gives me strength to get up and get going.

  1. Let go and let God do his work of healing. You are too anxious to do everything!
    Strength will come but it takes time!
