Fatigue and Strength

I consider this one of my favorite (partial) verses.  I try to remember it when I am so tired.....

The Joy of the Lord is my strength then....

 I Rest a lot and try ignoring the fatigue sometimes.

After that, I reflect on how it was 100 years ago, no meds, no running water, no a/c, etc....They had pain too.....

By far, I am not the only fatigued person now.

  Everyone deals with their own life differently.....I am sharing a few thoughts that helps me.

I love this pic I took yesterday as I link it with Word Filled Wednesday:

Well, I will appreciate anything that helps you, I am needing the wheelchair more and more, and just went for an MRI this morning. I think If I could or would do more, it would build my endurance, but then there is the pain and sweats...how are you doing?? The flower picture is beautiful!

Beautiful picture. I think of that too...100 years ago...what would I have done? Probably not even have been here!

The combination of beauty of flowers and beauty of verses - can indeed give one strength and help one overcome tiredness.

Nothing seems impossible when you believe in the power of words and that of nature.

Beautiful verse and picture!

Such power in those words, He is our strength!

Brenda Susan said...

I am thinking that God would not have said He would be our strength unless He knew we would need it. So sorry for your pain and so thankful that your spirit is not giving up!

One thing I'm grateful for is sidewalks and awesome wheelchairs. 100's of years ago, people who couldn't walk were confined to their beds...that would drive me crazy(ier)...lol

Kathryn said...

Indeed indeed! The Joy of the Lord is my strength. It is 102 degrees today and I am weary, yet... the Joy of the Lord is my strength!

Shanda said...

So true. Our bodies can be healthy and strong but if we have no joy and are filled with mental turmoil, it zaps our ability and desire to do or be anything.

Beth in NC said...

That is beautiful! I love that scripture!

Have a wonderful WFW!

Love,
Beth

Betsy from Tennessee said...

We are so fortunate to have been born in this day and age! Modern miracles have helped so many of us make our lives easier to live. While our bodies might be weak we have a strong spirit and a fighters will, just as many did 100 years ago!

Dawn said...

Wonderful thoughts and so perfect of a verse Kim!!!
Hugs to you today. So glad God gives us heavenly beauty to take our mind of earthly matters!!!

Wanda said...

Beautiful photo Kim and that's one of my favorite passages as well.

what a celebratory photo ...

I read this verse the other day:

I'll refresh tired bodies; I'll restore tired souls. ~Jeremiah 31:25

that's my prayer for you!

Janis@Open My Ears Lord said...

Beautiful flower and photo! Your positive, faith-filled attitude is an inspiration. We had a neighbor in California who suffers from MS. She is coping and doing great with her attitude as well. You both are such strong people!
God bless you.
Janis

Debbie said...

Not to compare fibro to MS in ANY way, but I relate to what you've written on a daily basis.
