Jesus Hugs

In all honesty this semester has been a very hard and trying one for me. The month of October was particularly rough. I was hoping November would calm down a bit but it started off with a bang of a migraine.

I can usually keep a good attitude of life, even when dealing with my health, but the constant sickness since August has really beat me down. With so many things to worry about it can get overwhelming and sometimes I wonder when it will all stop and slow down.

I've been really trying to lean on God through this time, as he is the only one who can get me through it. Having chronic sickness can be very isolating, especially when you're single. It kind of strips you of everything and puts your total reliance on The Lord.

I've been trying to memorize some scripture and read my Bible more to get some inspiration. When I was on fb someone had this as their status and it has become one of my new favorite verses. (in all honesty I get a new favorite verse almost everyday, there are just so many good ones!!)

"I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit."
Romans 15:13

I like to think of verses like this as Jesus Hugs. Bear with me... When I read scripture such as this I feel comforted and I just kind of think of it as a Hug from the Lord telling me it's going to be ok because he is with me all the time and he's got this. I trust in him, and he is the Creator of all, there is nothing he cannot do! Better yet, he loves me with an everlasting love. Who can I fear with Jesus on my side?
