I'm sitting in my study working on some things and I can hear Cindi coughing up a storm in the guest bedroom. She's been sick for about a week now, and hasn't really slept during that time. I don't anticipate that she will tonight, either. It would mean a lot to me if you would pray for her. More than that, it would be effective, since God promises to hear and act in one way or another. She's not one to complain, but I know she feels terrible.
Which reminds me that we all tend to forget what we have until we don't have it. Most people don't wake up on an average day and crawl out of bed with an air of energy, exclaiming "Wow, I'm healthy today!" But that would be a very natural and logical response considering the chasm between what we deserve and what we've been given. Even when you're not healthy, you're healthier than you deserve. Anything is more than you deserve. And that's not rhetoric or hyperbole or a generalization.
But it is hard to believe day in and day out. That's why it's important to preach the gospel to yourself every day (even the nasty and humiliating parts).
Anyway, please pray for Cindi when you think of her. For perseverance, for joy, for sleep, for healing.
