Yesterday a man told me he was glad I was able to attend church. A year ago, I was only attending when I was on Prednisone. I thought back to my life then. It was not unusual for me to go for weeks or months without leaving the house.

Unfortunately, the Prednisone that was supposed to protect me from allergic reactions, lowered my immunity to the point that I could not fight off any virus or bacteria. It seemed that if someone at my husband’s workplace sneezed, I would catch the cold! He would bring the germs home on his clothes, but he never got sick.

After two months of continuous infections, the doctor ordered me to go out, a little at a time, to build my immunity back up. I attend church on Sunday mornings, but I do not mingle with everyone like I used to do. I am grateful for those few hours away from the house. I can agree with Isaiah in today’s verse.

Isaiah 25:1, “O Lord, You are my God; I will exalt You, I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, even purposes planned of old [and fulfilled] in faithfulness and truth.”
