I just can’t do as much as I once did. If I try to push myself too hard, I become dangerously tired and need to recuperate for days. I realize that cannot get through the day without relying on God. My own power will not be enough.
This might seem horrible to an outsider, but I choose to embrace it. It keeps me in relationship with my faithful God, allows me to slow down and savor life, and reminds me that at the end of my life I’ll be trading in this weak and limited “earth suit” for a new and perfect body that will last through eternity.
