But as for me, afflicted and in pain—
may your salvation, God, protect me.
Not to complain, but I deal with pain on a daily basis. Some days are better than others and I know that many, many people have worse conditions than I have. Even though the pain remains, I find comfort in knowing that God also feels my pain and and knows exactly what I am experiencing. He helps to support me both physically and spiritually and that support gives me the strength to keep fighting and not get discouraged. And of course, I have the wonderful hope of a totally pain free life in the New Earth. I can't wait!
