Strength? Strength!!

After reading yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, a Facebook (FB) friend of mine L, commented that it was a good cliff-hanger.

I realize that L thought I was leading people on to wonder about what the surgeon in Las Vegas (LV), Nevada, USA told me.  This truly was not the case.

The fact is, that I have put off even discussing what the LV surgeon told me, because I believe it might harm my situation with being approved by the Toronto surgeon.  The one that I will see for consultation, at the end of August.

In my heart, I would love to discuss the issue, here on LwL. 

If I was able to do this, it would certainly prove that I truly need prayer.  Of course, I know some of you have been praying for me.  And, I thank you.  May God bless you.

However, what I heard from the LV surgeon set off a myriad of emotions for me, once again.

It's not easy to deal with a serious trial in life, like the one I'm facing.  Especially, when a person feels like they've been slapped silly.

I must admit, that after seeing the LV surgeon, I was happy.  Then, sad... upset... angry... frustrated... and totally unable to focus on what I should do.

Even at the airport, while waiting for the plane to arrive, so I could board, I found myself feeling all those emotions. 

One minute, I was fine.  Calm.  The next, I felt sick to my stomach, just thinking about what I had heard.  Anger set in.  Tears flowed, from time to time.  There were moments, when I truly felt like I was falling apart. 

When all is said and done, I must admit I am thankful that truth was revealed to me.  Even if it is frustrating and hurtful to me, in some ways.

Please bear with me, my friend. 

I'm not trying to hide the info from you.  I am just trying to protect myself from any adverse development, concerning my health problem.

Since you don't know what I am referring to, I realize you truly cannot understand.  But, God does.  For this, I am thankful.  And, I am thankful that He answered some of my prayer requests.

He is my Lord, who loves me... and you.

So, I praise God that He is helping me through each and every day.  And, I will continue to trust Him.

Just as He told us in Isaiah 26:4, "Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:"

How I praise God for His everlasting love and strength that He provides me.  And, you... if you belong to Him.

How thankful I am, that He makes a way where there isn't one.  Not just for things to happen in our lives, but also to assist us in living each and every day.

He is my strength, and my salvation.  Without Him, I know I could not handle this deplorable situation. 

So, I thank You, Lord.  And look to you, for everything in my life.

Until next time...
