Mobile Praise Party

I found this new song. Well, it’s been out for a while but recently it has been new to me. I was listening so hard this morning. I was listening to it in the car. I mean I was rocking the accelerator and the gas peddle to the tempo and beating my steering wheel. I had tears almost come completely down my face. As I got closer to my destination, I realized that I just had praise service in my car. “I Made It,” that’s the name of the song by Fantasia, featuring Tye Tribbett. I did just that, I made it.

I made it through the work week. I made it to Friday morning. I made it to the parking lot of my work building. But, I almost didn’t make in the building due to having to regain my presence from all the screaming and hallelujahs. That can really change a girl’s hair, you know. The point is, on this crispy cold morning, I actually did make it. I didn’t miss one day this week. For me and living with my lupus, that is a challenge in itself. I often tell how blessed I am that I can and am able to work full-time.

I don’t take it for granite. But like anybody who’s human, I worry that my flares will completely incapacitate me. (Not that I’m completing working in a ‘normal’ way, anyway. But I try.) The pressure is often on. So if anyone ever asks when do I go to praise service, it will now be on Sundays, in addition to and at least every Friday in my car.

Reflection:
When you’ve reached the end of the week, do you often reflect on how far you’ve gotten? What are your challenges through the week? Do you thank God for making it to Friday?

  1. I stumbled upon your blog while looking for lupus-related things, and I’m glad I did! I just turned 29 and I’ve had lupus (well…Diagnosed) since age 22. Before that I had been diagnosed with a different autoimmune disease that effects my kidneys. Lil over 2 years now since I received a new kidney! I’ve only read what I could right now but you are inspiring and I can’t wait to read your books!
