Hope To Break The Cycle

For the past several months, I have been going through a repeated cycle of getting sick, getting treatment, and getting better. Starting from last September there have been bouts of bronchitis, then the heart flutter thing that resulted in two procedures, the pericarditis, and most recently pneumonia. By God’s grace I have been able to keep my classes going with only a few cancelations.

But the cycle led to another cycle of getting behind on blogging, keeping up with blogs I follow, and interacting with people who comment on my posts. It has been get sick, be sick for a week or so, get behind, then when I feel better. try to catch up.

As I get better from pneumonia, here’s hoping to not get sick again for a while. One of the things I looked forward to doing with the extra free time due to not teaching mornings is blogging and of course writing.

I am thankful that I was able to teach all of my classes this week, but also thankful I had time to rest. This weekend will be meaningful with my Ukrainian friends as we celebrate three birthdays Saturday morning in class and then go to a prayer rally to commemorate the one year anniversary of the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Ministry, writing, and blogging are all part of the plan behind my change of not teaching mornings. By God’s grace, I hope to not have any more interruptions of that for a while. 🙂

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Brother, I understand. I feel the EXACT same way. What a comfort we have knowing that God is in control even when Satan THINKS he can foil our plans. I’m praying for your strength, health, and immunity! May God keep giving you the tools you need to complete your amazing work for him. Please give your Ukrainian friends my best regards. 🙏🏻💕

      1. Brother Matt, I’m a little worn, yet happy. Achy, yet hopeful! I’m sitting at a new desk. I’ve longed for a REAL desk for years. With little rest, I’m typing with a smile! I need to find a good chair. For many years God has kept me uncomfortable enough to ALWAYS lean on him. I was asking him about a comfortable chair this morning. LOL. My bones ache and it hurts to type sometimes. But it’s a good hurt if you know what I mean. May God keep blessing you through the pain, trials, challenges, and daily “to-do’s”, brother! Praying and sending blessings daily!

  2. Wow, it seems like yesterday that we just heard the news report.

    I have been getting so far behind in my blog readings that I have finally decided “It is what it is”. Between trying to read for reviews, read and study my Bible, and take Bible studies at church, plus then one I lead. I have to understand I can’t do it all. Life has just gotten busy. Plus, dealing with my back issues. So, don’t let it get you down brother.
