The smell makes my stomach churn. The needles and blood make my teeth clench. The fact that I am being poisoned sickens me. I feel both hot and cold. Where do I run and how far until I can escape this pain. My body hurts and my eyes are tired.
This is what climbing a mountain is like. Seeing no end in sight just pushing one hand at a time taking it all step by step.
Welcome to being human. Uncertainty becomes our security and we trust what small or large feelings of pain that we so often feel. This is human and I know it and wear it well.
Truth is we are more that humans, we are created in the image of the most high God. A God who has bent down from protection to save us from our pain, sin, and death.
Superhuman is what we all have been called to and if we fail to accept that amazing gift from God then we will forever remain in our weakness and in our pain and in the worst days of endless suffering.
But our God is stronger our God is
greater our God wiser than any other. So in your pain and your turmoil take rest in the God who was and is and is to come.
This is our future hope.
