I'm Tired Of Being Tossed By The Wind

This Scripture has hit me square between the eyes and straight into my soul. God always, always knows exactly what we need.

As I shared in my last personal post, I have been really struggling with all I have been going through over the past six months or so. My faith has been blowing this way and that and, after reading this Scripture, I realized how God reminds us not to doubt.

"But let him ask in faith, with no doubting,
 for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea
 that is driven and tossed by the wind.
-James 1:6

I'll be honest - I've probably read this Scripture before, but sometimes we read things when we aren't struggling with that topic, and it seems interesting, but it doesn't strike a chord with us like it does when we need it. 

It has totally changed how I have been praying for the past few days. I definitely do not want to be tossed about like a wave. Can you imagine how much satan loves when we doubt? Oh, dear friends, this just opened my eyes and heart; it made me realize how I've been just putty in that evil one's hands because I've been doubting that God will work all this out. 

Enough of this doubting and my faith is being pumped up daily by spending serious time in the Word and in prayer. 

I do have an update for you all regarding this new surgeon. I called down to his office on Thursday and she said that the doctor had looked at my medical records and he didn't think it was serious enough (I'm not sure if this is the exact wording she used) for him to do. My heart sunk when I heard this BUT... she then went on to say that he wanted me to see his colleague. Yay! So, two things here to be happy about - that he didn't think my situation was real serious and that I will get to see a new surgeon! 

I was also so relieved when she said he could see me on March 30th. When I saw the first surgeon, it was 3 months before I got in and, had I seen the surgeon that I was referred to, they said it would be at least a month. To be able to go see him so soon and get some answers and talk with him about doing the reversal surgery is such a relief. I'll have to travel out of town again 2 hours away, but I will have my husband and my son with me. That was another thing to be thankful for - my son is off that day and is going to go and see what he thinks of this surgeon.

I'll be honest...I'm still a bit nervous but my faith is in the Lord and I am going to hold tight to the Rock and not allow myself to be tossed about! 

Thank you so much for your prayers and I would be so thankful for your continued prayers!

I wanted to share this beautiful song that just came out. Natalie Grant is the featured vocalist on this song and the words just touched my heart! Such a beautiful reminder of who Jesus is!
