Well, since the surgery, it seems that I have been on a roller coaster. I have suffered much with pain because the pain medications were making me very nauseated. Many of my nights have been sleepless, while I tossed and turned in pain. I have to daily remind myself that this too shall pass.
During my first week home I started having excessive coughing spells, then the next week bladder spasms started. The bladder spasms are a very painful and uncomfortable feeling. Initially this pain was down lower in my abdominal and pelvis area, and then it moved up and seemed as if my intestines were having spasm-like and cramping pain.
Unfortunately, the pain has increased enormously since I was released from the hospital in November. Therefore, I was unable to return to college this semester. My pain and complications became so intense I was re-admitted into the hospital on last week. So here I am back prisoner in this hospital.
I have my good days and bad days, but I’m trusting in the Lord to see me through this journey. I also realize and know that God is getting and will get all of the glory from this journey. No matter how I feel or how rough it gets I will continue to magnify and glorify the Lord! God has been better to me than I have been to myself. He has never left me, nor forsaken me. He is always my peace in the midst of every storm in my life. He gives me strength, peace and joy to glow in the midst of the darkest moments in my life. He truly keeps on keeping me. He is Sovereign in all the world and in my life. He is indeed my Healer! It may seem crazy to some, but every experience in my life has shaped me and made me the woman that I am today. All of the good and the bad have built my faith and taught me to trust in the Lord. And at this point in my life, it always comforts me to look back over my life as a reminder that He did it before, and He can and will sure enough do it again!
But, I’m convinced that 2016 has prepared me for God sized blessings in 2017 that will encourage, inspire and be a blessing to the masses. I have many testimonies and I will share them to the ends of the earth and wherever the Lord sends me. I am determined for God to get the glory out of all of my suffering. My suffering shall not be in vain.
Peace and Hope
“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” ~Matthew 5:1-5
