Selective memory

"If you are not firm in faith,
   you will not be firm at all."

—Isaiah 7:9b


Feeling exponentially better than yesterday. God's been good to me, and I feel foolish for ever losing sight of that. Thankfully, He reminds me, giving me the rest and perspective He knows I need (if you prayed for me, thank you!). I'm also starting to gain a (perhaps renewed) sense of the other things I need, and in contrast, what I don't. So much is so very simple—I'm just easily distracted and stubborn enough to keep going when I'm only getting more tired and lost.

But I'm not lost. Not at all.
