Proverbs 19;23 ''The fear of the Lord leads to life; then one rests content, untouched by trouble.''
Being in the hospital recently wasn't my first rodeo nor my first time up to bat. My health struggles are part of my life story and I've accepted that. When I was younger, my fears led to fainting, endless tears and panic. Experience in the physical realm of discomfort has helped my faith grow and helped me trust beyond what I feel.
Do you truly believe God is with you every step of the way and that He uses people for His purposes? I found comfort in recognizing nurses and aides from my last hospital stay and knew I was in good hands. I found comfort in my new doctor listening and answering 'my' questions. I found comfort from all my visitors that each have their own special relationship with me.
I'm not saying this was not a storm without bolts of lightning, but there is always a silver lining of peace. My peace comes from knowing I'm in God's hands and on His timetable.....and nothing can change that.
