Dear Journal

The last few days have been hectic with pending deadlines and battling with the very bad influenza virus! It came like a thief in the night and has completly ruined the plans I had to meet the deadlines…

Nevertheless, it will pass and for that I am grateful for. As I struggle with joint pains, a nasty cough, fever and loss of appetite, I pause as I imagine people who are struggling with gruelling diseases and are in hospital. I have taken a moment to pray for others, that their pain and struggle is washed away.

In everything, we must know who we are loyal to. I am loyal to the Cross of Jesus Christ and all my hope is rooted there…

Pray

Father, thank you for your Grace. We honour you and exalt your name above every other name. Please stretch out your hand and heal the sick so that they can be whole again. Amen.
