Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. – James 4:10 KJV
Overcoming an illness can be humbling. When we are used to doing everything, it can be humbling when suddenly we can’t because of our health. When I had tested positive for COVID-19 last September, I never would have imagined that I would be sick for more than two weeks or become a COVID-19 long hauler. I never would have thought that being sick for that long would set into motion some drastic life changes, such as a move to another state.
The Lord gives us strength in sickness and health. He knows our thoughts and fears and can heal us from any ailment. We can be grateful when our health returns. When He lifts us up, He lifts us physically and mentally. Amen.
