God gives me strength

I apologise for being so quiet. Life has been really hectic. I must say my pain has been less but fatigue has overwhelmed me. It has taken all the strength I have just to get through the day. And on top of that I have been sick with the flu and am still struggling to get over it. The days where I have felt a littke better have filled with good times with friends and my family. So blogging has been low on my priority list.

One issue I have been thinking through lately is why would a loving God allow us to suffer.  The conclusion I have come to is why not! The times I am well, I do it in my own strength and I dont trust in God. But when I no longer can do it in my own strength,  then I have to trust in God. It is the dark times, when I am closest to Him. When I am weak then he is strong.

Many times I have heard that Christians should never be depresssed. But that just condemns people like me. I dont think being a christian cures depression. But Jesus is right there with us, walking beside us through the depression. God has chosen not to heal me of fibromyalgia and I know he has good reason. But I am accepted, loved and forgiven even in my pain and depression.  Jesus understands me more than anyone else ever could and I find comfort in Him who gives me strength.
