A week ago today I ended up having unplanned surgery. It was an unexpected set back and I wasn’t prepared for it. I had knew it was an option but I was hoping that it didn’t come to that. I had issues after my tubes came out with fluid build up. I saw it and I felt it and it hurt but I didn’t want to complain because I wanted everything to stay on schedule and my fear was it was gonna push it all back. If it wasn’t for my mom and my radiation oncologist I wouldn’t have met with the surgeon.
So I had went into surgery and things went smoothly. I didn’t have as many complications I didn’t have any pain. It was like it happened and things were so much better. I even found out everything else was still on schedule and if I had waited it might have pushed everything else back further.
It is amazing how in life GOD forces you to do what needs to be done because we are too stubborn to do it ourselves. I can think about the pain that I was in and I couldn’t lay on my side but I didn’t want to fix it. I didn’t want a set back. That is all I was focused on. No set backs.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
That is often how we view life. We don’t want to quit that job because we don’t want a set back and have to start over somewhere else that could possibly be better for us. We don’t want to leave that relationship because we don’t want to start over and meet someone that GOD has prepared for us because the thought of being single scares us. We don’t want to move forward with GOD’s work because we are concerned of rejection and getting a set back in life. God will push you, HE will force you to be where you need to be for HIS works. HE will force you out of a comfortable situation and place you in an uncomfortable situation so you can be blessed.
