The rug of life was ripped out from underneath me again the other day. Do you know that feeling? The feeling where you’re carrying on about your daily life and BOOM!! Next thing you know, your’re flat on your back with the world spinning around you. You desperately try to stand up, to hold onto something, in hopes of stopping the spinning. Well, that’s what happened today when I was told the doctor wants me back into the office to discuss my blood work. It’s amazing that after it happens once, that it takes less and less each time for it to happen again when you hear anything but good news. You would think you would become desensitized. Nope.
It is easy to be faithful and thank God for your many blessings. It is harder to find Him, hold onto Him, and lean on Him, when you’re in the middle of a storm. It’s a hard realization that your body may have let you down, or changed your perception you had for your life, but God will never let you down. He understands our suffering. He has walked this path before us and is ready to show us the path, guide our every step, and transform fear into trust.
