A Lupie Sister shared recently that no matter how she may make Lupus look, it is still very hard.

This is so true, not just for Lupus, but for a lot of illnesses or even turmoil going on in your life. We have a tendency to smile to hide the pain, hurt, despair, loneliness, depression, anxiety, etc. This is our nature! We are built Ford tough; however, it is easier to smile and hide than to speak out and say how we are truly feeling. We don’t want pity, negative attention or to be judged so we put on our masks as a defense mechanism.

Let me start the unmasking! My truth: I have been struggling hard lately health-wise both physically and mentally! I started a new regimen that depletes my energy as well as causes nausea and pain. I have been truly tired of being sick and tired. I have asked God for just 5 mins out of a day to relieve all pain. I have been very low. I am a firm believer in God and I not only sing his praises, but I also preach his word. I know what the word says and although I am leaning and depending on God, believing his teachings, recognizing the miraculous things he has done and realizing he can and will do it again, I am still human and will have valley moments. No one is exempt, Christians or not, from experiencing valleys.

The Good News 🌈: Just as inevitable as it is that we all will have valleys, it’s also inevitable that we will have mountains. Trouble doesn’t last always. This too shall pass. We woke up so there is another opportunity to have a better day! We may have fallen, but we will rise again. The Bible teaches us that the righteous man fell 7 times, but he got back up.

On this Worship Wednesday, I give all praise, glory and honor to God for this brand new day with brand new mercies. I also thank God for each of you. Let’s use this opportunity for a new day to love on each other without pity, negativity and judgement!💜💜💜
