Midway on any project can be so encouraging. Half-way there on a trip can be just the ray of hope needed. But how do you know where that point is exactly? Especially when you travel down an unmapped road?
This latest health crisis for my husband has left us with more questions than answers. Where did his mystery infection come from? What is it exactly? How long will it take to get rid of ?
Last Friday (2 months into this ordeal) we were told, “the original mass in his left lung has shrunk by half.” Great news! But does that mean we’ve reached the midway marker? Or do we count from the day treatment began (5 weeks prior)?
Hard to tell… and even harder to guess the length of this journey. Jesus said, “So then, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.” ‭Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭NET‬‬
True. True.
In the GPS-less world of healthcare, we are flying blind. How thankful I am that God is close beside us and sees in the dark!
“If I were to say, “Certainly the darkness will cover me, and the light will turn to night all around me, even the darkness is not too dark for you to see, and the night is as bright as day; darkness and light are the same to you.”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭139:11-12
“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭
Connected by love in Jesus- What a way to travel!
ForGlorySake! –Anna
