31 Days::Day 19 - From weariness to rejoicing...


I wake up weary this morning - the culmination of days of flaring, a week of restless sleep, and a heavy heart - and the thought of even just one thing seems overwhelming in this pre-dawn hour.

After pouring the day's growing assortment of meds into the palm of my hand, I remove the small green boost of iron my body needs but my tummy doesn't like - and promise myself I'll eat more spinach. 


I turn on the laptop and pull up Romans 5 - my just one chapter for today - and the very first verses move me from weariness to rejoicing - from suffering to hope.

I don't know what other just one thing goals I'll meet today {I'll let you know tomorrow}, but I do know that it will be because of this grace in which {I} stand. 

Day 19 - Romans 5 {Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. vs 1-5}
