Has grief impacted your body as well as your mind?
“Physical problems can run the gamut,” says Dr. H. Norman Wright. “There can be stomachaches, headaches, anxiety, rapid pules, heaviness of the heart. It can affect your blood pressure. Sleep disturbances come as insomnia or sleeping ten, twelve, or fourteen hours a day. You lack energy, just plodding through the day, looking at the clock, hoping it’s time to go to bed.”
How you feel physically can deeply affect how you feel emotionally. So make sure that the basics are covered. Eat healthy food, exercise on a consistent basis, and get plenty of sleep.
Remember, healing is a journey you travel both physically and mentally. Face each difficulty one day at a time, one step at a time, until its completion. Counter each problem with the assurance of Scripture. Remain faithful till the end, and you will be victorious over every problem that sets itself up against you during this time.
“In all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).
In you, victorious Lord, I am more than a conqueror over these physical problems. Show me how to endure and to win! Amen.
