Worth It All
"You crown the year with a bountiful harvest, even the hard pathways overflow with abundance", Psalm 65:11. This has been the most difficult year of my life, health wise, but it has also been a year of overflowing blessings. I suffered with severe upper back pain for a year and a half. After 3 specialists, 2 chiropractors, numerous pills, pills, and more pills with an injection or two thrown in, the last thing left to try was breast reduction surgery, which I had on July 31. And my back pain is gone, praise God! Alas, my front hurts awfully bad right now, but that will heal. Praise God there was an answer for my back pain! It's been hard, and still is, but this past year of enforced quietness, stillness, sitting, sitting, and sitting has resulted in more time basking in God's presence, in prayer, in the Word. And that has been worth all the pain. "For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever, and He will guide us until we die", Psalm 48:14.
