Don't it just suck when you go on vacation and then get sick? It does. And that's what happened to me. Here we are, in sunny, although somewhat unusually cool Florida and I come down with a mild flu- but flu nevertheless. I got sick the first day here, and now, 3 days later, I still am, although I've been able to go out and do things during the day, which is definately a blessing! I'm just praying that the sore throat will be gone so I can fully enjoy the remainder of the time here. I hope I don't pass it on to anyone else. Anyway, what did I learn from this experience? Well, not sure really. Probably that I have too much sugar in my diet and not enough vitamins, but ah, it is so hard to resist that chocolate, those cookies..
Interesting thing though, during our drive down I was praying and felt God say something to me. Now, let me tell you that I am one who never stays up late (unless on special occasions or if I'm unusually wakeful, which doesn't happen often). I love sleeping (normally get 9 hours a night!) oh ya! Usually when 10:00 rolls around, I usual start to fall asleep- no kidding, that's when I hit my tired wall. So ya, not a night hawk, not even when I was a teenager. So, to get to the point, while we were driving our 25 hour, non stop, straight to Florida, I was praying about me surviving the night. I had to stay awake for the couple hours whenever it was my husband's turn to drive. But the interesting thing was that I heard God tell me that He would sustain me. It was really cool. I wasn't sure at first if I was hearing right so I figured I'd just have to wait and see. And you know what? I could barely- I don't even know if I did- sleep at all that night. And I tried hard! But I wasn't feeling that tired either and when morning came, I was able to sleep on and off thoroughout the day but I never felt overcome with fatigue. I was in a good mood and had pretty good energy the entire day! So it was cool, God did sustain me for sure!
So girls, I hope that you are able to recognize when God lifts you up during the day. I don't really know why I got sick (I try to keep a pretty healthy lifestyle) and no one else did but God is sustaining me now too. And I know that he is there for all of you girls as well!!
