Is That Light I See?!

It's been a while since I discussed my health situation, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  So, I have decided to write about it, today.

When my surgeon was away on vacation, his receptionist was still working at the office.  She had told me that she would call if/when she heard from the 4th and final surgeon in Toronto.

When I didn't hear from her, I called.  Several times, actually.

On one occasion I asked her for an appointment to see my surgeon.  Her reply to me was that there was no reason for an appointment, since there was nothing more he could do for me.


I didn't get an appointment arranged.  And, felt somewhat frustrated, as I'm sure you can imagine.

On Wednesday, July 10th, I spoke with her again.  She told me she would call the surgeon's office in Toronto, since they hadn't yet heard anything.

After I got off the phone, I prayed about what I should do.  After all, I felt like I was battling that same old Glass Wall, that I wrote about in the book I published, Love Never Fails You...

Later in the afternoon, I decided to call Toronto. 

I called the surgeon's office, there.  His receptionist answered and told me this was a good day to have called.  Why?  Because, this was their first (1st) day back at work after having about three (3) weeks of vacation.

Relief came over me.  I realized that it wasn't a case where the surgeon didn't want to help me, but rather, it was a case where he hadn't been there, to even look at the referral made for me.

After some discussion about my referral, the Toronto surgeon's receptionist told me to have my Windsor surgeon call them.  Apparently, the Toronto surgeon prefers to discuss with the surgeon making the referral, complicated situations like mine.

For the first time in quite a while, I felt like things were looking up for me.  Instead of feeling a measure of frustration, I felt like God was answering some of my prayer in a positive way.

I felt encouraged.  And, felt like there was light at the end of the tunnel for me.  I was thankful that God was lifting me up, and providing for me, while I was standing courageously waiting to hear from the Toronto surgeon.

This reminded me of Psalm 31:24, "Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord."

Yes, God lifted me up that day.  He reassured me that as I bravely stood my ground, placing my hope in Him, and trusting Him, He would continue to give me the strength to get through this trial in my life.

How grateful I am for the wisdom and guidance He gave me that day!  Thank You, Lord.

I'm thankful for all He does for me, in my life.  After all, He is my strength and my salvation.

Until next time...
