When running a bath makes me wonder if I have enough energy to get in it.

When taking something out of the freezer makes me need an half hour rest.

When I work hard to eat enough to keep me going and I just can’t keep it down.

When I watch my oxygen saturations drop and my heart rate rise.

When I phone the hospital in defeat and ask for an appointment as soon as possible.

Then I truly know that my life is not in my hands.

Again, I realise that I have no resources of my own to fall back upon.

Here is weakness.

Today I have nothing but my God.

And she said…

And she said, ‘I’ve been ill and weak for so long now. Surely this can’t be right.’

And her Father said, ‘ My power is made perfect in weakness. And you weren’t weak enough. Don’t worry. This is right. This is in My plan. I planned this just for you from before time. And My plans for you are good.’
