I've already talked about how Sara Groves, an amazingly talented Christian artist, helped to sustain me through my dark days. I also gravitated to God's Word. As I walked through that valley of the shadow of death, I would visualize myself laying down in the green pastures, and walking beside the still waters of Psalm 23. When worldly medical professionals suggested meditation as a way to deal with my anxiety, I chose to meditate on God's Word exclusively. Why would I need man-made things to meditate on when the Creator of the Universe had all of the answers I needed?!
I love how Josh Wilson juxtaposes his "sinking sand" with God's "solid ground". (See Matthew 7:24-27.) If you are ill with Lyme disease, or some other chronic illness, I encourage you to place your feet firmly on that solid ground that only God can provide.
