Quote of the Day – When true Inspiration is needed I know where to go!

il_340x270.493327490_st8f

Inspirational Quotes surround us in today’s world of Facebook, Google, Twitter etc. Throw away lines that are designed to challenge us and motivate us. Do they or are we overwhelmed by the many thoughts, sayings, likes and shares that crowd our day? Do we really take time to reflect and ponder and listen to our own thoughts, or even sort our own thoughts to work out what we really feel, what we really believe?

I’m pondering today, partly because I’m bedridden  with severe pain and partly because I needed quietness to listen to my own heart, my own thoughts and to just be. My pain levels are through the roof today. Something is wrong with my broken leg. I can’t weight bear. It was getting painful yesterday but this morning it was clear something is not right.

My husband wants to take me to hospital but I just want to rest. If I lie on the bed the pain eases and Sundays at a hospital, even a Private one, are just not really worth the effort.

So I’ve been looking at inspirational quotes for the online support group I administer and the more of them I read the more I felt a growing sense of emptiness. So many of them lack substance and that’s ok for a light hearted pick me up kind of day when a throwaway line will make you smile and say “yeah, I like that”.

Today is not that kind of day. Today I needed substance, today I needed to go where I knew I would find real strength, where my faith would be confirmed, where my soul would be comforted. My most favourite verse in the Bible that has kept me going through the  good days, the bad days and the in between days is

jeremiah

It is good to be reminded that God truly has a plan for my life, a hope and a future. Today, I needed to be reminded of that and to know and to remember that I am blessed, to know for sure, that it is true.

  1. You are a gift from God to me! I have spent a year on my knees, praying that I would be able to point people to God with my blog, letting them know there is hope through Him. Sometimes I think, as I see more medically-related RA blogs soar in popularity and mine remains small and focus, “Do people want this?” But I know I was called to do it. Devotions for people in pain. Whether you read one of my #RABlog Week posts or not (perhaps you went straight to the Bible or maybe there’s another God-centered blog out there -yay!), you have confirmed that there is in fact a need for what I do, week after week, in my spare time. Thank you! May you have a wonderful day today. You just made mine!

    1. Linda your comment is such an encouragement to me. Thank you so much. I’ve felt exactly the same but I know I have been called to write & reach out to others dealing with complex health issues so I will continue. Even if it only helps one person in need it will be worth it.

      I love your blog & will be following your journey. God bless you & thanks for taking the time to encourage me. X

  2. P.S. – I meant to add that I will be praying for you today, and your knee. I’m sorry that your pain is so bad. I hope you find a solution to it soon. God bless!
