I learned today that I now have stenosis of my nerve pathways on both sides of my spine. This causes the nerve pain and numbness – I knew I had this on my left side, but I guess it is on my right as well.
I thought it was interesting. Kind of like life right now, narrowing on both sides is how I feel some days.
I am reminded of God’s grace today. Freely given to me, I am forgiven, blessed, accepted as I am with flaws and all. And I have a lot of flaws. But in all of my troubles and stumbling, He gives His Grace anyway.
I need to remember to give myself the same Grace. I am not perfect, I doubt, I sin and I am broken. But I am also loved.
