In His Time
Went to bed last night in great discomfort, but my medication finally knocked me out. Then, I was awoken after cooler temperatures caused my entire nervous system to go haywire. The good news is my recent pain shot has not created as much pain as it usually does the days following. The bad news is it’s showing no clear signs of helping YET.
I go back to my pain specialist January 3rd to evaluate things further, but I’m afraid my expectations will come true. Shots like this do next to nothing for nerve pain like mine. All I’m really praying is that this shot in some way keeps my lower back pain in check. I still feel very strongly I could benefit from a Rhizotomy so I’m praying that gets approved soon.
On a very positive note, I’m still doing very good in my mind and heart. God has kept me settled, patient, confident in His plan, and hopeful of what He will do in His time. Nothing is happening much in my time, but I’m trusting in His perfect timing. While at times I feel like I’m at a forever bus stop I know who is driving my bus. His track record is perfect and He has never failed me before.
“God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.”
