Fibromyalgia

Type A in a type F body,
That's what You have allowed,
It's fibro that has brought me here
And to my knees I've bowed.

The pain seems never ending
And laziness abounds,
I feel so useless, Lord, at times,
My thoughts a battleground.

My brain seems often in a fog,
My words get twisted round,
I sometimes stumble when I walk
And, oh, for sleep that's sound!

But why should I complain at all,
There's many more much worse,
I need You to remind me, Lord,
When in pity I converse.

There is a higher purpose
For all that You allow,
And if this serves the greater good
Then I submit right now.


"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." II Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

Dear Carol, it is true that sometimes the Lord can permit us to live with pains or pains to live with us, not because He has no power to take them away but that we may recognise His grace and power that is able to sustain us through pains! He remains our closest friend since He alone understands our deepest feelings, having being through ALL kinds of pains before. REJOICE IN THE LORD, I SAY REJOICE! Ezekiel

Chronic pain is something only those who suffer can fully understand, but you did a great job in helping to bridge the gap.

I, too, have fibro. It is very hard at times to be able to do so little, but so special when God gives us a tiny glimpse of how He's using it for His glory.

I have fibromalgia, too, among other stuff. It is a hard thing to live with. Thank you for expressing yourself in this poem.

Amen, Carol. As you know I can relate and my prayer is that, He will give all those who are in constant pain a reprieve and a rest, if only for a season. Love you sister, keep the faith and the writing flowing His way. Debby

I can't imagine the pain you go through.That's such a great attitude to let God use you to glorify Him through it.
