Day 5

I knew I was getting sick last night, so I went to bed really early, around 9. I woke up and looked at the clock -- it said 2:30. I was sweating and had the worst headache I've ever had in my life. It literally felt like someone was pounding my head with a hammer. And my body felt weak. Just moving my legs was painful. I tried going back to sleep, then looked at the clock again. 1:15. What the hell?! I guess I was hallucinating. No matter how much I tried, I couldn't go back to sleep. I wrestled myself for the next six hours, trying in vain to fall asleep. I finally succeeded around 7. Then woke up half an hour later. I called Tamara (the "manager") and told her I couldn't make it to work. I miraculously got up from bed and took an Advil. Walking around took so much energy, I thought I was going to faint. After downing the pill, I fell on my bed and slept for a couple of hours. When I woke up, the headache and the sore throat were mostly gone. Hallelujah! The rest of my body still hasn't recovered though. I should be okay by tomorrow.

Point to Ponder: Life is a test and a trust.

Verse to Remember: "Unless you are faithful in small matters, you won't be faithful in large ones." Luke 16:10a (NLT)

Question to Consider: What has happened to you recently that you now realize was a test from God? What are the greatest matters God has entrusted to you?
