About a year ago, I went to the doctor for a specific health issue. I had to have a minor surgical procedure as a result and thought everything would be just fine, so I thought. The doctor told me I had to be put on medication right away because I had another issue going on. It was a bad combination of D words that kept playing over in my mind. I heard the diagnosis, had to change my diet, felt devastated and depressed then the came the big one…diabetes. It was a shock to hear I had an illness. I had to lose weight. I had to face the truth and deal with this new reality. I worked hard to become more educated, eat right and started to incorporate more exercise in my life. I am no longer depressed about it and I have good and bad days but I remain focused on living a healthier lifestyle. I learned a lesson through this diagnosis. It led me to make a decision to trust God to see me through every challenge I face. I, of course had to do some things differently but God didn’t. He was already doing the same thing. God was still being God. God was still in control so I knew I could trust Him to be unchanging and unfailing. It’s a daily decision to trust Him with my health issues and my actions. God knows the plan and the purpose so I must trust it’s all working out for my good.
