I'm trying to control my constant back pain with the exercise and walking program my doctor has put me on.
So far, there's been no change in the pain. Thank you, sweet friends, for your prayers and please keep praying for me.
I'm resolved to not let this get me down. My pastor gave a sermon Sunday on Jeremiah 15 that I'm claiming for myself. There are three promises that God gave to Jeremiah in Chapter 15:
1. verse 11-"I will take care of you". I know God will take care of me through this as He has through all the other things I've been through in my life. He loves me. That's the bottom line. And He wants the best for me. As I surrender this to Him, He will provide me with everything I need.
2. verse 19-"I will restore you". I don't believe Jesus wants me to live halfway alive. He wants me fully alive, complete, and whole. His death on the cross 2000 years ago accomplished salvation for me. And He has the power to see that it's worked out in my life.
3. verse 21-"I will keep you safe". Satan wants nothing more than to trip me up over my health problem so that I'll plunge headlong back into depression. But God is my protector, rescuer, and helper. The One who is in me is greater than the one that is in the world. I put my trust in Him.
