I’ve mentioned before that life before knowing about the tumor had had it’s incredible challenges this past almost 2 years. We’ve been through some “stuff” and it’s been a roller coaster. Today, life outside the tumor had some hard news. I am not sure how to process how tough life actually is, with and without tumor issues.
Life is hard sometimes.
And sometimes its amazing.
Sometimes it’s all mixed together in a salad. The salad of life. Ok, so weird metaphor.
Mostly, it’s the hardest things in life that give us the most health in the end.
Like Kale. Some people love it. Don’t be offended if you do. But seriously, it’s a bad weed. A bad weed with a lot of nutrients. (By the way I know it’s not a weed) Not all healthy foods can be rock stars like blueberries.
I had a juice yesterday where I shoved about 4 cups of kale into the juicer and went to town. Then 6 apples. I had to get it down somehow.
Exercise. Now that’s another painful thing that brings us health. I hate it. Truly. Especially in the winter. Yet, I became more healthy when I pushed to run the 5 km. Dang!
So the hard times in life also bring health, if we let them.
It’s a balance to deal with the salad of life.
Today brought the kale of life, and it tasted awful.
So, to round out this salad, I bring to the table a hearty dose of protein (ok, another bad metaphor). The protein of the Word of God, who is the Life Giver. My Strength.
This was the verse of the day for me.
Psalm 22:19 But you, O LORD, be not far off; O my Strength, come quickly to help me.
