2 Cor 4:7-13 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death is at work in us, but life in you.
One Sunday not long ago, I enjoyed a wonderful morning worshiping and hearing God’s word preached to God’s people. I came home and after some personal Bible reading, spent the remainder of the day writing. I was tired and went to bed early. During the night, I woke up needing to use the bathroom. When I leaned over to flush, I blacked out and collapsed to the floor!
When I came to my senses, I found myself face on the floor, crammed between the toilet bowl and wall. It was bizarre. I tried to get up and manage to stand - momentarily. Then I blacked out again and crashed to the floor on the other side of the toilet. I regained my senses but slowly.
After a while I was finally able to extricate myself from my lodged position, move my body across the floor, and prop myself up sitting against the wall. I waited until I was reasonably lucid. Then I managed to pull myself up with the help of the sink and return to bed laughing! It was hilarious! I could not believe what had happened!
