A thru Z- P is for patience



Romans 12:12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. : Recently, I have been dealing with quite a few medical problems. I have several different Doctors that I have to visit on a regular schedule. I have a cardiologist, ophthalmologist, endocrinologist, and a internal medicine Doctor. Several weeks ago, I was scheduled for a heart procedure. I arrived at the hospital early that morning, they proceeded to get me prepped for the procedure. They drew blood, got an IV started, etc. Well, when the nurse checked my blood sugar, it was over 600. So, the procedure had to be cancelled, and my Doctor admitted me into the hospital. I was closely monitored, until they were able to get my blood sugars regulated, then I was able to have the procedure. Through all of this, I have learned to be a patient patient. God requires patience from us, as we go through our trials and tribulations in life. I truly believe that our trials make us stronger, and more faithful. As my health continues to get worse, I get more patient with God. I know He is my true physician, and He is in control. He created me, He knows all about me. I will be patient, and wait upon His decisions for my life. What about you?

I'm sorry to hear that you are having such health problems. I am a diabetic and it's challenging to keep on a regular schedule.

I will be keeping you in my prayers and commend you for having a steadfast faith. You're definitely an inspiration to me.

Have a wonderful day, my friend.
