Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! – Psalm 46:10 NKJV
Sometimes I feel down for no particular reason. As a COVID-19 long hauler, I sometimes feel like my brain is too big for my skull. I have heard that COVID-19 can cause inflammation in the brain, triggering depression. That’s probably what I experienced back in September 2020 during the third week of my COVID-19 recovery. I’m lucky to be alive.
To be still when we are exhausted is not always a choice. When we crash, we crash.
In that stillness, we can do nothing but acknowledge our weakness and know that God is the Lord. His thoughts are not our thoughts. The Lord knows our pain. Amen.
