Three years later and I feel as if I’m still plodding down the block…wondering…waiting to hear back from a doctor AGAIN. I woke up, wanting to call, e-mail, communicate in some form with Dr. K to know what to do about the latest abnormal test result. I didn’t communicate. I did, however, keep checking my patient portal for something new. Then, unexpectedly, I glanced at a tab I had left open to a verse I’d determined to memorize:
Glory Just Around the Corner: Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. 1 Peter 4:12-13 The Message
The reassurance from The Word was all I needed to keep from checking my patient portal. Less than an hour later I received an e-mail from Dr K’s nurse addressing the abnormal test result and letting me know my local pharmacy had a prescription for me.
