Most of you remember the day you heard the news. When the doctor came in and told you something you weren’t ready to receive. You immediately put up every defense mechanism possible. Then, you walked out that doctor’s office very much in shock. That life changing visit would then be followed by endless days of denial.
I still recall when one highly respected doctor told me the cold hard truth. He said, “you need to understand this nerve damage is permanent. You will deal with this the rest of your life. I don’t care what any other doctor ever tells you. It’s obvious from the MRI and your body’s response to surgery and treatments. This is here to stay.”
I’m sure I just sat there with my mouth wide open. It was such a dark and enlightening moment. Yet, it was what I needed to hear so I could begin to process my new reality. I needed to recognize what man couldn’t do versus what only God can do. I’ve been trying to walk by total faith ever since. I’ve not given up hope things can change. I’ve just transferred all my hope in the only One that never changes.
