Only God can truly know when we are beat down, depressed, and tired of aimlessly going on. And only God can truly fix that for and within us!
Why He chooses to heal some people completely and others get temporary assistance til the next time it happens…I have no idea. But — I do trust The One that IS IN CONTROL and that truly KNOWS BEST!
Does that mean I still face doubts, uncertainties, and yes – even depression – well yeah! I’m one of the ones that gets the temporary assistance til next time.
Hi – glad to meet ya!
So here’s the next time…God hasn’t chosen to heal me of clinical depression, nor chronic pain that radiates throughout my body (fibromyalgia), nor rhumatoid arthritis, nor degenerative disc disease that has compromised not only my lumbar but also my cervial and now thoracic spine. But He has chosen to give me exactly what I need and when I need it most — His grace! And believe me it is beyond more than enough to get me through til the next time!
You might be asking, “How is she so sure?” or “Why does she bother with ‘God’ when He obviously isn’t going to ‘fix’ her?” BECAUSE….oh the many ways because!
The latest because is when the spine implant that was just replaced in December 2018 has failed in less than 6 months…never charged properly from the day it was replaced and went completely out with no explanation from doctors and engineers. I’m just told I have to have it done all over again at the expense of an $11,000 deductible.
Nope – God has not told me I have to do that. In fact God has completely told me to rely on His grace which is sufficient for me each day to not only get me through the day but to thrive each day. Is that without difficulty? No. Is that without pain? No. Is that without God? No! He’s right there with me every step of the way and He is giving me more than enough to do what needs to be done each day that I trust Him, rely on Him, and look to Him for my everything! Because HE is my everything!!! And just to remind me of His all in all, He has given me two amazing friends that are in constant prayer for me and always available to listen, to help, and to pray some more!
I pray for you! I pray that you will give Him a few minutes of your time each day. He has so much in store for you. He’s not finished with you yet my friend! He loves you beyond all you could ever understand this side of heaven! He’s already done so much for you, more than you could ever understand this side of heaven! So what are you waiting for?
