I have to stop for a moment and give praise (where all praise is due) because this time last year I was in bed all summer long. I was constantly turning down invitations & “come hang out with us tonight” texts because I physically couldn’t muster up the energy to get out of bed. It was depressing. defeating. *Insert all the words that start with “d” that made me feel inadequate.* My lyme journey has been anything but an easy one, but its caused me to cling to what matters most in this life and I know who I am more then I ever did before this disease. I know my creator isn’t just renewing my body on this healing journey but he’s renewing my mind and changing my thoughts. I used to struggle to see my worth, I would cringe when others told me I was beautiful. It’s funny how now I name beauty over what I once only saw as flaw. It took a disease for me to see & know (more clearly) the way my Father sees me and it’s a liberating position to be in. I have a lot of hard days where I don’t feel like I have enough strength to make it through, but I am also having more and more good days and I want to praise Jesus for them both. i am not where I was last year and although we are not to the part in the story i anxiously anticipate, I know the waiting is worth while because I’ve seen the beauty in the journey.
