Crushed But Not Destroyed
2 Corinthians 4: 8-9 says "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed"
This passage would define my last 2 weeks which started with the flu and led into pneumonia.
Being sick does not just affect you physically but mentally. It crushed my motivation and left me discouraged at times.
In my mind I knew this would pass. I would get through it and recover. But it still put me in some dark moments at times if I'm being honest with you.
As I was laying around trying to recover last week I had this funny thought that flashed me back to the 80s when I had my Atari 2600 video game system. We got the Raiders Of The Lost Ark game and it required solving puzzles and challenges to find the Ark.
I got obsessed with winning this game and would spend hours trying to get to the next level.
I would get going and make some mistake screwing up the game, but I could hit the reset button and start over. So I could get back on track to finding the Ark.
Eventually I found the Ark, won the game, and completed the mission even though it took some resets to do it.
The same is true in life. I believe we need to reset just like with video games.
Many times things are going well and then life happens. Sickness, loss of a job, a divorce, depression and the list goes on.
For me being sick for 2 weeks calls for another hit to the reset button. It crushed me for 2 weeks... but it didn't destroy me.
Like phoenix from the ashes I will raise out of this and come back STRONGER.
