Thanks to everyone who responded to my blog and Spark Cafe post regarding my Achilles problem. Unfortunately, it isn't getting any better. I'm resting, icing, compressing, and elevating as much as I can but don't seem to be making any progress. It's only been a couple of days, though, so I'm still hoping for the best. I have 13 more days to heal before my big cycling event and right now it seems like a 50/50 shot to me. We'll see how things go.
In the next few days I want to say a few things about how I'm thinking about my injury. Problems like this are opportunities to focus on the right things and work on keeping a positive mental attitude. We cannot grow stronger unless we face opposition or resistance, and therefore trials like these are necessary.
I'm not exactly excited about this injury, but I am truly thankful to the Lord for it because he works all things together for his glory and our good (Rom 8:28). Hope you all have a great evening.
