Cold & Flu

I am on my 3rd week of facing cold & flu symptoms that just will not let up. Last Thursday I started a run of a 100+ temp for 5 days. It has not been fun and now my family is sharing in the "sickness" party, adding to the feelings of yuck.

Yesterday, I was beginning to feel somewhat better, but as night fell, my temp increased and the aches & coughs returned throughout the night. I'm sure by now my wife is ready to ship me off so she can have a decent night's rest without a restless, coughing partner.

In my discouragement, God speaks tenderly to my heart...
"Even though it seems impossible (to you), should it seem impossible to Me?" (Zechariah 8:6 NRSV)

Today I need to know that my God is powerful enough to handle anything...even what the flu dishes out.
