I stayed home from work today. Not due to sickness, just a combination of exhaustion and pain from my pinched nerve and fibromyalgia. Last night when I went to bed, I knew that I would be a mess in the morning if I didn’t get a really good night’s sleep. It’s no coincidence that the Lord chooses those times to assure that I’m relying on Him.
The Lord knew that I needed rest, and while He didn’t provide it at the time that made the most sense to me, He provided it in His own timing. I am thankful to be able to entrust myself to God’s care, because He knows what’s best far better than I do.
I am also thankful that He used my husband today to care for me. He gave me little back rubs, encouraged me, and offered to make me lunch. Yes, I am thankful to entrust myself to God's care.
