It's been a difficult few weeks. My Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue is in a flare. This past Wednesday's lesson was on the R - in THRIVE... REST... We need to rest if we are to THRIVE! To view this lesson please click here.  http://michele-risingabove.blogspot.com/2009/05/beelieve-you-can-thrive-resting.html 

When one has Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue syndrome, it is much more than regular fatigue. Below is an article concerning this illness. Part of the reason I blog is to educate people in regards to chronic illness and chronic pain.

Though I have a chronic fatigue that just does not stop even with rest, I am so thankful I have my Savior to crawl up in His arms to REST!

One day though I will be healed completely. One day I will be rested! One day I will see my beautiful Savior face to face! One day I will have eternal rest! Until those days come, I will crawl up in my Savior's arms to REST in Him.

I'm so sorry to read of your flare up, Michele. Rest in His arms, it's the best place to be. Loved the song and words.

Blessings Michele...I can't believe that I have the same song prescheduled for Super Sunday for REST!!! I'm so sorry that your chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia is fared up but with all you & Marsha have been going through and the helplessness, I'm sure that triggered more. I pray you feel God's mighty touch & find rest, that the pain leaves & the fatigue in Jesus name & your REST will finally feel like it! Clearly, we both like this song by Mark & needed the soothing words of REST to keep on THRIVING! Love your hope & hold on, Michele!

Hi Michele,

I am so sorry to hear that the Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue are in the flare. I relate as far as the Fibromyalgia. Yesterday and today I felt extremely drained and had to lay down and sleep for a few hours. People don't really understand the pain and fatigue one goes through on a daily basis. You are in my thoughts and my prayers for quick relief and miraculous healing from all pain, discomfort and tiredness for once and for all in Jesus precious name. Amen!

I love you dear friend,
Alleluiabelle

It was a delight to see your face on my blog, Michele. I have come over tonight to meet you, and was greeted by a lovely song. I hope you are feeling well tonight, and enjoy a day of REST in Christ Jesus.
