Evil Won’t Win
So the Lord said to Satan, “All right, Job is in your hands, but you are not allowed to kill him.” So Satan left the meeting with the Lord and gave Job painful sores all over his body, from the bottom of his feet to the top of his head. Job sat on the pile of ashes where he was mourning and used a piece of broken pottery to scrape his sores. His wife said to him, “Are you still holding on to your faith? Why don’t you just curse God and die!” Job answered, “You sound like one of those fools on the street corner! How can we accept all the good things that God gives us and not accept the problems?” So even after all that happened to Job, he did not sin. He did not accuse God of doing anything wrong. (Job 2:6-10 ERV)
Please read the above passage; take your time and really understand how it relates you us. We are like Job; we can not let this pain get the best of us. For me my life was already fucked up before fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia was somewhat a life saver. It had forced me to take my health more seriously, and stop doing the harmful things I was doing to myself. I actually love and respect self more now than I ever have; because I’m thinking more of me instead of everyone else.
It’s tough and it’s a battle but I will still be a solider in the army of the Lord.
