Challenges, challenges, challenges! While I was going through chemotherapy, I learned about an invisible horse I was riding. Yes, invisible. I have never been on a horse in my life, but my hips felt like I had been riding this horse for at least six months non-stop. Here is an excerpt from my manuscript:
Even when I stand I still feel like this invisible horse that I have ridden wants to push further. It is so amazing that of all things the only thing I can think about is this crazy horse.
Well my invisible horse has returned with power to remind me that “I’ve been here before.” I constantly remind myself of the war within that no one can see but I can feel it. This is to see the power of God in my inward parts. I began to read the book of Matthew 9:1-8
- So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city.
- Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.”
- And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, “This Man blasphemes!”
- But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts?
- For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk’?
- But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.”
- And he arose and departed to his house.
- Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men.
There is something that happens when you ask God for help with something you cannot fix. Each day that goes by is a journey. You have to take the initiative to push through “No Matter What.” Before you realize it, you have once again become a victor over your issue.
