Down in the Dumps

Sometimes my health issues make me down in the dumps. I had a coworker today say to me, “Oh ya, you can’t eat this.” My reaction, of course, was, “Yes I can, it’s not like it’s sugar”. His reaction was, “It’s still not good for you. Especially with everything that’s going on.” That brought me down. Those little reminders are what just make me start thinking about the things that I cannot do, or the things that I wish I could do. I don’t want to be limited in life, or to feel I can’t do things that others can easily do. Once I came to my senses (which was much later by the way) I realized that I have a Heavenly body to look forward to and this body is only temporary. What seems good on this earth will be so much better in the Kingdom. Things that I did enjoy here, will be nothing compared to what is to come. When I keep my mind on what is above it brings me back to where I need to be.

For now though, the struggle is real. The temptations of a bad attitude are huge and Satan knows exactly what to do to bring me down.

Perfect that There’s No Greater Treasure by Ascend the Hill comes on my queue as I write this post.

God, wake the longing of my heart with Your touch
Steal my affection from these fleeting joys i crave too much
Stir these passions to life in me with Your hand
And lift my attention from this flesh, a filth I cannot stand
There’s no greater treasure
Or more profitable gain
There’s no greater treasure
There’s no better name
God break the grip of this world, it’s hold is fast
But it’s cold, gross, its garlands fade and nothing lasts
O be to me the all consuming flame, the burning fire
Be all that satisfies my soul, be all that I desire
There’s no greater treasure
Or more profitable gain
There’s no greater treasure
There’s no better name
There’s no greater treasure
Or more profitable gain
There’s no greater treasure
There’s no better name
Jesus
There’s no better name
You’re my delight, You’re my desire
You’re my delight, You’re my desire
You’re my delight, You’re my desire
You’re my delight, You’re my desire
