TheraSuit:Year 2, Day 2

Anne has really struggled today.

I am sitting where Anne can’t see me, but I can hear her. I know she doesn’t feel well. She woke several times last night with itchy eyes and a stuffy nose. She’s tired. But she’s persevering. Through tears she is relenting to the therapist’s commands. She’s had grit today. I’m proud of her.

I’ve been reading through Jeremiah as I write my daily bible365blog.com posts. Jeremiah complains a lot, and he has every right to! The people of Judah want to kill him because they hate his message of Judgment…but God is firm with him. In Jeremiah 15, after God rebuked Jeremiah for his complaint, God built him back up with a strong-as-rock promise:

And I will make you to this people
a fortified wall of bronze;
they will fight against you,
but they shall not prevail over you,
for I am with you
to save you and deliver you,
declares the Lord.
I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked,
and redeem you from the grasp of the ruthless.” (Jeremiah 15:20-21).

God works this way with us. It’s very similar to Anne’s therapy. The therapists ask her to do hard tasks – for her good. She complains, and they are firm – yet encouraging. She perseveres, and consequently – she is made stronger.

May we have the courage to persevere through God’s therapeutic work with us :)

    Sooooo glad they are loving Sweet Anne thru the horrendous challenges of the workouts.
    Sooo proud Anne can: Speak her mind, feel her feelings AND do it anyway. The markings of a real champ! (And an incredibly healthy person, actually, grin).

    PS
    Does Anne still like potatochips? I remember that was a real motivator one day last year,

    Loving you, loving Anne and lifting both of you, your whole family and her TheraSuit team up in prayer-songs, as always….day and night, they are there.
