I wish I could read this to you... and who knows I may just do my first vlog (can we say vulnerable!?)....... Edit: I did my first vlog just for you & this message! Ahhhh!!!!! So here it is... (scroll to the bottom of this post)
When God brought me this opportunity last spring, it made no worldly sense at all because you see when I had the surgery & got readmitted which is what I write about, I didn't leave there well or healed... and have seen many doctors & specialists since... been poked, prodded & tested all over because no one has an answer to the trouble I am now having (which I did not have before my surgery)... since Dec of 2013 I have had painful restroom emergencies nearly every. single. day. usually several times a day... As you can imagine this has greatly impacted the quality of my life.
Fast forward to 2 weeks or so ago (before the event), the enemy kept telling me to cancel my flight and bail... because like every other day for the last ...over 634 days... I have gotten sick. Real sick. Ya know what though!?... I didn't entertain these thoughts. BUT...
I DID have to process through some shock that God had not yet healed me... as I was so sure in my faith was His plan when I said yes to this and another opportunity last spring. I didn't seek these out, He opened the doors for me so it was hard to grasp that He was sending me all the way out there... still... sick...
But again... I chose to move forward and shared with others that I had to trust that by the time my feet hit the ground at the airport, either here or there, that I would be healed.
Well, making a long story short, let me tell you....
That for the last 16 days straight my intestinal health has dramatically improved!!!! (I'll spare you the icky details, but let me tell you... this. is. miraculous!) I'm not completely out of the pit but God's got me! Say Yes from the pit ladies.
Say yes to slowing down when your spouse or kids are around even though your phone is flashing with all sorts of notifications, say yes to boundaries that protect your time even though you need that client, say yes to that big leap of faith God is asking you to take even though it'll cost you everything if it doesn't work out.
If you walk away from anything today I hope it is to know that God hears you, God sees you
and God KNOWS YOU! You are Loved! We are loved! Let's live like it! With an abandoned trust that God WILL take care of us! This looks like.... being Free of insecurities, free of unforgiveness, free to be present, free to say no to the good for the best God has for us!!
Ladies!!!... let's Live Loved!!!!!
