A Daily Walk

The summer of 2012 was the beginning of a very difficult season for me due to severe physical trials. I had gone from being a highly active person, performing in eight shows a week to someone whose movement was extremely restricted and I was in constant pain for months on end. I soon discovered that a battle with your body can quickly turn into a battle with your spirit and also your mind. Some days just getting to the end of the street was like climbing a mountain for me. Going through such a fiery trial I decided to read through the Psalms every day and found them to be wonderfully real and encouraging. Another particular part of the Bible that I found comforting was Lamentations 3:22-26 which reads,

"Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  "The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord."
