When we are suffering through a situation, we need to give our cares and worries to God. If we continue to lean and depend on God, He alone will give us the strength we need to make it through. God’s grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in our weakness. It is a blessing when you look back on a situation and know that it was God that brought you through. But it an awesome experience to be in a situation that God and only God is strengthening you minute by minute, hour by hour, and day by day. 2 Corinthians 1:9 says, “Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.” I was sent home from the hospital with 3 days of pain pills. I ran out after 4 days so now I using Tylenol and Advil to help ease the pain. My only activity was going to the bathroom and trying to get in a position for my colostomy bag to be replaced. By now my sister-in-law was retrained by the nurse to replace my colostomy bag. She had passed experience at her previous job so she was godsent. She graciously came and replaced my colostomy bag, talked to me, and brought me food to eat. She made me think of her sister, my best friend that passed away earlier this year. My friend was a nurse and loved taking care of people. Anytime Rick and I had something going on we called on her. It is hard going through the last few months without my friend. But God has provided. Later, I will dedicate one of my blogs to my husband, who has been my rock through this whole process. At night, I would listen to the sound of thunder and rain on my phone to fall asleep. I would do breathing techniques, trying mind of matter, I would look up scriptures and I would pray. I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. Psalm 116:1-2.
