But I am thankful. And I know that God is in control. I pray and would love if you would pray that I stay encouraged throughout all of this, especially in the next few weeks before I go back from my checkup. I guess I can say that in the past (and currently) I've had a hard time with "waiting". Waiting to get better. Waiting to find out what the next steps are. I need to continue to remind myself that it could be WORSE. I don't need surgery now (PRAISE). Medicine and more physical therapy might help. And later down the road, when I have come to terms with this issue and feel more comfortable, I will share my story of what I've learned I have (it's not life threatening so please don't worry).

And typing my thoughts out has surprisingly been a huge help, so why not do what makes me feel good, especially if it's on my own blog? Whew! Sorry friends, that was a lot of information...ha :)
So what does one do when they need a "pick-me-up" or reminder of how good God is even through the hardest times? Well for me, I turn to my best friends, LifeGroup gals, the boyfriend and family. Let me just show you two ways of how awesome God's timing is when it come's to giving you what you need.
1. Is it a coincidence that my LifeGroup leader Holly sent out an article to our group titled 'Waiting on God is Hard, and That's OK'? I don't think so. I read it at just the right time...when myheart was heavy and I was frustrated with WAITING. I really liked how Aaron Coalson said "the longer we wait the more the wait itself becomes a type of suffering that can hammer away at our sanity without the right perspective". This is a MUST read, and you can find the article here.
2. Another friend of mine posted on her Facebook page a link that took me to a site that has 16 FREE eBooks from Beth Moore! Talk about an awesome surprise! I immediately downloaded a handful of them onto my iPhone and iPad and have already started reading 'A Heart Like His'. If you are a Beth Moore fan, or interested in some free eBooks, you have until this Friday to download them. here is the link...enjoy!
