Not Giving Up

 

My sister and I, were talking on the phone yesterday, as we often do. Suddenly, she said something that totally took me by surprise. She said: Nesie, we are both dying, you know that right?? She said: We both just keep running from Doctor to Doctor, trying to prolong our lives. We are both type 1 diabetics, with several different health problems that have been caused from the diabetes. I totally understand her frustration, and concerns. But, excuse me, I am not dying. I will take my last breathe, when my Father chooses for me to, not a moment sooner. Do I get frustrated, scared, sick and tired, of being sick and tired??? Of course I do, I am only human. But, I refuse to lay down, and give up. My time is not in my hands, or any Doctor's hands. It is in my Father's hands, and that is a great place to be.

Amen sister. We die when we give up. We need to keep pressing on until the Lord calls us home. We all have an appointment as God says in his Word but I don't want my appointment to come any sooner. Big hugs are sent to you and prayers too.

I agree with you and I just prayed the scripture "I shall not die, but live and proclaim what the Lord has done" Psalm 118 over you.

Hugs.
