He's Working It Out

Another day, another doctor. Can you give a wild guess as to what my next step is? If you guessed more tests, ding, ding, ding! You're right. By the time I get done, I'm going to have had everything checked from head to toe, inside and out. The doc ordered two tests today and thought it was a good idea to follow up with the advice from my primary care physician and visit a rheumatologist.

Last night several people from church prayed for me. I love it when they do that - makes me feel their concern, and reminds me that God is ultimately in control. I have placed my trust in Him, and I know whatever happens in this life is for a reason. When I'm aching and complaining, I would do well to remember Romans 8:28 (NLT), "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."

Difficult sometimes though, huh?


  1. I hear you, and feel your pain!! I set upon the journey to better health determinedly in Sept. 2008. We finally found one of the last pieces to my puzzle and are in the process of treating that! We're not finished tweaking, but at least now we know what's what. Stay the course and finish the race. It's worth it to endure until you have definitive answers. I also liked it when icky stuff got ruled out, too!!

  2. One step at a time, I guess. It's a difficult process though, and you're right - I've wanted to just give up and wallow in self-pity. But I'm not going to. I'm on a quest. Thanks for accompanying and encouraging me, Carrie.
