In God’s Time I shall return. Suffering is a part of Life as is illness/sickness/disease. As much of my disabilities are hereditary and I cannot change my genetic code this is something I must accept. Whining, complaining, bitching and moaning won’t change a thing. With acceptance comes peace. For example Monday, July 18th I tried to find certain of my poems in my Documents file and found they were all gone. Normally I’d be upset and panic but as compared to constant chronic pain I though So be it. Perhaps this is a sign of some cosmic change I’m not yet privy to understand. I’m not one to beat my head against a rock. Nor will I go running to and fro for some miraculous cure which does not exist. It is what it is. I will enjoy the time left to me whether its two months, two years or if I’m lucky another twenty years.
1 Peter 4:12-19
King James Version (KJV)
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.
16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
