“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“And My servant whom I have chosen,
So that you may know and believe Me
And understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed,
And there will be none after Me. -- Isaiah 43:10
Be bold. Get uncomfortable. Embrace your journey.
In the last three days, this verse has become more true to me than ever. I am walking in my healing (I have declared over and over in person, on Facebook, on the phone, and to whoever will listen). But, I have learned over time that healing does not always look as we think it should, or much less a narrow road back to the ways things used to be. My healing comes each and every day that I walk up and breathe on my own and take a step towards where I need to be today.
Today, I learned that I have suffered some tumor to my talus (ankle bone) that seems to be the reason for my increased ankle/foot pain. I praise God for advances in technology and favor that I have with my doctors, in a sense of when I complain of pain, it is not overlooked or dismissed, but investigated. I never take that lightly because that is not always that case for others.
I also praise God that it does not means a step back or even being at a place where I used to be, but discovering an issue and moving to a solution.
I praise God for my husband that reminds me that "I got this"
I praise God for my sons whose first instinct is to protect me.
Healing is not always pretty, or easy, but God never promised it would be. He is faithful!
