If there is one thing that I have learned about life, it is that we can’t predict what we will happen to us. I went to bed last night just fine, and woke up at 3 a.m. with my left hand throbbing and swollen. Since then I’ve been elevating it and using ice every hour and the swelling and pain are not budging. While I’m not sure what caused it exactly, I’m thinking that maybe it was the yoga program I’ve been doing. It puts my weight on my left hand and stretches it. It may just have stretched it too much, too fast.
Honestly, I could just cry. The yoga is helping me control my pain on other parts of my body. I started doing it to help my arm recover from building the muscle too much. Now I really don’t know what else to do. If I was a quitter, I’d quit right now.
- Walking and running hurts my feet and left hip.
- Weight lifting hurts my hands and right arm.
- Yoga hurts my left hand.
- Cardio causes a misalignment in my ankle.
- Working my core too much hurts my ribs.
Thankfully, God has blessed me with the ability to figure things out. I will not just give up, but I will keep trying until I figure it out. While I may not be fighting for my life, every day I feel like I am fighting for the quality of my life. My God is bigger than my enemy. He will help me overcome every single obstacle that the devil places before me. Of that I am certain. And when it is all said and done, I will be victorious through my God.
My friends, don’t give up on your own battle. God will help you. He has a plan and the strength you need to get through this. When the enemy is raging all around you, find a quiet place and talk to the Lord. He has your answer. Ask Him to help you.
P.S. Before I went to sleep last night, this was the last verse I read in my Bible. God was preparing me then for my battle that He knew was coming for me.
Job 23:10 KJV
But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
Love and blessings,
