Someone opens my bedside drawer and I see a glimpse of the once organized interior which has now turned into a mess. Because I was too sick and weak and couldn’t open it, let alone fix it as I used to, Tim, my 7-year old boy took advantage of that and ransacked my drawer for anything he needed – pens, memo pads – and wanted to put in, mostly his origami projects. A voice cruelly whispers in my ear, mocking, “Your drawer, just like your health and life, is desolate.”
My heart answered, “My health and my surroundings may look desolate, but my soul is being watered.”
At the beginning of December, I became sicker and weaker than I already was. My son’s birthday, later on, my husband’s, and then Christmas and New Year, came and went in a blur. Those days were excruciatingly hard and scary, to say the least. But when matters of my health settled down after many weeks, and after many agonizing, incessant prayers, my life settled into reading the Word again with fresh faith, hope, and tenacity. Although I was still sick and weak, I felt that God was drawing me closer to Him, and so, I spent the days in prayer, reading, and listening to Christian audiobooks on divine healing, especially those of Andrew Murray, and all the others in that time period.
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. (2 Cor. 4:16)
