To trust God in the light is nothing, but to trust him in the dark - that is faith.
It’s finally Friday! And I have it on my heart to share a little of my story with you guys that may not know me too well. I don’t know how many of you out there live with medical conditions but I, myself have hypothyroid disease and my body is hyper sensitive to a lot of foods, even healthy foods and emotions effect me greatly. As if being a woman and having PMS isn’t enough right 🤷♀️🤣 For the past week I’ve been swollen, exhausted, down and out, foggy headed, and suffering from stomach discomfort. It’s hard to tell if my meds are off or if my body is reacting to what I’m eating. Although I mainly eat the same things, my body can be fine with it one day and not want it anymore the next. People closest to me tell me I’m the sickest- healthiest person they know. I felt like sharing because in times like this it’s hard to want to get out of bed in the morning or anything that follows that. It takes over and you lose your sense of emotion for everything. But instead of letting it take over, I wake up anyways and I drink my coffee, spend my time with God, put on my workout clothes and workout even though it takes every ounce of strength! I keep feeding my body the healthy fuel it needs even though I want to binge on everything bad for me. I still go to school and show up to work, I still force my way through homework and chores. I keep living even when it feels so tough to do the simplest things. Sometimes I fake it so hard it feels like I’m making it and other times I’m happy to sleep in hopes for a new and better day. Either way I keep pressing it and I keep doing it! I never compare my life to those around me because who knows what their story could be. I still get up, dress up and show up because there are so many people out there who may need me and if I don’t give it all I’ve got I may miss the opportunity to help someone else and my sole purpose in life is to serve others and show them the light that shines inside me, the light and strength that keeps me going. Faith is believing even when you can’t see.
