When I can’t walk, I feel like a FAILURE. I feel I can’t physically do all I usually can do just fine—I feel like my body is making up an excuse for a cop-out.
When I can’t walk, I feel HELPLESS. I need people to help me do what I SHOULD be able to do. I am so thankful for friends who help me.
When I can’t walk, I feel like GIVING UP on everything else, too. I ignore invisible weakness, and push through other things unseen—but when I am having troubles walking on my own…I’ve reached a bad point.
When I can’t walk, I feel TRAPPED. Sometimes, I DO have energy, but I can’t do anything about it. What can I do when weakness of my body restricts me?
When I can’t walk, I feel EMBARASSED. I’m such a slow walker, trying so hard to lift up my foot enough so I don’t trip on it, and take a step. The more I can’t, the slower I move.
When I can’t walk, I sometimes FORGET about the Lord, who is lifting me up every moment. I forget that I’m alive and can have hope for a better future despite this disease.
When I can’t walk, my weakness is VISIBLE. In my weakness, Christ’s power is made perfect, and I am strong in Him. FOR WHEN I AM WEAK, I AM STRONG. Do you see Christ’s power in me? If not, maybe it’s okay when I can’t walk well, so that His power may shine through me!
