Sometimes in the midst of struggle, it’s hard to remember that worry from fear won’t change anything.

I know in my heart that faith is the opposite of fear, that if I go on with my worrying, it means I am not trusting God. I know He is ahead of me on this. He knows what’s happening, He knows what will come ahead. He does not want me to live in fear and worry. He wants a special connection with me where I need Him and call on Him.

When the right tests came back that sent me to see a specialist, it still took a few months to be seen, but at least I would finally have my answers. Though the appointment was thorough, there were no answers. More specific tests would be needed, and I left the office so disappointed. Even more so, when I made the follow-up appointment for the test results, it was almost a month away. God knows I’ve been trying to be patient, but it has been such a struggle!

As I’ve been waiting and wondering what has been going on in my body, I thought I’d make use of the new online patient portal where I could see all sorts of information, including test results as they came in. I told myself I could figure out what was wrong with me without waiting a month to see the doctor again. Boy, was I wrong. My husband’s advice was to not Google. He said nothing good was going to come of me trying to diagnose myself, but it was too hard to see the results and not Google what they meant.
