I recently got injured and am now stuck on a couch for two weeks, having to keep my foot elevated and only able to get around on crutches. This injury happened in the middle of two of the most busy weeks of the year for me and as a result all my plans are now irrelevant. All I can do now is sit.
This experience has forced me to face many questions in my life that I have been dreading such as: If I ever got into an emergency would people be there? If I am unable to be productive, do I view myself any less? Do I have the self-control to face two weeks on my own? Is God truly enough when it is only Him and me.
I don’t know how I am going to get through the next two weeks doing nothing. So far, it looks like I will be spending an unhealthy amount of time on the couch, alone. I know this is not a good situation for me.
Somehow I want to view the next to weeks knowing that it is full of opportunity not only for my own self but for God to do his work. I know that having this time alone is important because God can speak to me much more in the silence. I need to learn how to not constantly turn to others in the midst of this time. Texts, social media, and even simply posting on here is a cry for connection. How do I learn to let God take the place of these needs?
