Some days are just hard . . . with worries about health, concern for family members, missing grandchildren, feeling a little blue. Several years ago people were following their biorhythms, calculating the rise and fall of our bodies’ biorhythms as clues to our physical and emotional health. There may be something to that, though Wikipedia seems to debunk the idea. Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about biorhythms:
A biorhythm is an attempt to predict various aspects of a person’s life through simple mathematical cycles. Most scientists believe that the idea has no more predictive power than chance and consider the concept an example of pseudoscience.
So who knows if biorhythm theory explains hard days. The reality is that most of us do have down days on occasion. I love the following definition of a hard day:
“Not standing on top of the world.
But standing under the weight of the world.”
(From a blog entitled The Edge at https://theedgeishere.wordpress.com/the-ins-and-outs/
So today for me is a hard day. I will push through it like I always do, knowing that tomorrow will likely be better. And I will stand upright (most of the time) on this promise I find in Isaiah 41:10.
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
