Got Through A Rough Day

I had not been body slammed with a flare up for a while, so when a nasty one hit me Wednesday and Thursday morning, it was rough. Thursday morning my prayer time was basically- Jesus you are going to have to carry me through this day. That was it.

He came through. The day went well. My students enjoyed their classes. My fellow teachers had no clue I was in the middle of a flare up.

A highlight for me was my morning class. On Thursdays we have speakers come. I arranged for a woman doctor come to talk about breast cancer and women’s health issues. The translators were all women. I left the room, so that only women were in the room. The moms asked many questions and when I returned, I noticed the session meant a lot to them. When I introduced the doctor, I told the moms that I want them empowered with information.

While they had their time with the doctor, I was in the school library getting caught up on some paperwork. By being in the library, I could sit in a comfortable chair not one of the plastic chairs in my classroom.

For me a flare up means pain everywhere and loss of appetite. It means wanting to just lay in bed because of no energy. I lessened as the day went on yesterday, but it was a rough day nevertheless. If you want to understand how it feels, imagine pain everywhere except your hair.

I am so looking forward to the day Jesus takes me home or even better returns for his church-The Rapture. Then there will be no pain. πŸ™‚ Until then there are people to show the love of Jesus.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. It’s great what you did for the women, Matt. They received valuable information that would have been much for difficult for them to get otherwise. You are one tough guy! Going all day while experiencing a flare up doesn’t sound like fun. But, like you said, Jesus brought you through. Blessings!

  2. I’m sorry you weren’t feeling well and I hope the days to come are better. I love that your focus was on others and Jesus in the midst of your suffering.

  3. Amen, sir. I’m very much looking forward to no pain in Heaven. Praying the Lord heals you and takes away the pain. That’s nice you set that up for the ladies. Sadly, DeSantis’ wife was just diagnosed with breast cancer. Praying she is healed. God bless.

  4. I’m sorry you had a flare up dad. Praying for you. Proud of you! You keep pushing and shining the love of Jesus despite your pain. He does carry us. Love you. ❀
