“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you” (Romans 8:11).
Spring is also my most painful time of the year and a vivid reminder of my chronic health issues. My bones are hurting, my pain is escalating, my exhaustion is overwhelming, and my depression is debilitating.
My mobility is challenged by increased stiffness and back pain. Regardless of what I do or don’t do, I am tired all the time. And the spring rains are a reminder of the depression that showers me with discouragement, discontent, insecurity, and self-absorption.
