I made it to three minutes at -230 degrees! Yes, -230 degrees. My body ached with the cold and I had to focus on anything but what I was enduring. I chose to move my legs a little more and balance myself at the top of the machine so that I wouldn’t fall into the nitrogen vents. I went from numb (prior to entering the machine) to more numb (inside the machine). Upon exiting the machine, I was full of shivers and shakes and weakness. I am adjusting to the experience. No, I am not enjoying the experience but getting more accustomed to it.
I am in a lot of physical discomfort tonight but there are storm clouds overhead and I always feel achy when storm clouds roll in. Praying that the continued treatments will trigger my body into a healthier state.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121:1-2
“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light and momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Have a glorious day and keep your eyes on that which is eternal!
