Today, I thank God for delivering me from hysteroscopic D&C procedure done to remove 5 endometrial polyps found in my uterus lining. Our God is our Great Healer. I didn’t felt any pain, except from needles from IV & skin test. Inside the operating room, my last memory is the voice of my OB Gyne, Dra. Cecilia Reyes, introducing my Anaesthesiologist, another doctor who would assist her and telling me that I’ll be fine. Then, I fall asleep, woke up after 2 hours, and yey, it’s done! I don’t even feel any pain, right after until tonight.
This season in my life, allows me to experience more of God’s grace, it’s about trusting God with the unknown. It’s my first time to suffer with this type of illness that I need to undergo general anaesthesia and be confined in the hospital for 2 days. I’m so afraid, scared… In my prayer, I trust Jesus alone, that by His strifes I’ve been healed already. I believed that Jesus is with me, He will never leave me nor forsake me. I believe in His promise “The Lord is my shepherd. I shall lack nothing. He restores my strength. He leads me down the right paths for the sake of His reputation.” I am singing “Desert Song” and worshipping God before and after the procedure.
I am loved
I realized that when you’re sick, you expect your family and friends to be ther for you during this low season of your life. I expect a visit, a call or even just text from them assuring that you’re okay. Thank God for few family memebers and friends who spends few hours (and even days) with me after the procedure. I thank God for Mommy and my sister Jell, who take care of me in the hospital, Nanay, Yaya and Temple, my friends Iris, Carol & Ric also visited me. I also thank God for those who prayed for me. I realized how much “time” matters. This can be the most valuable gift we can give to our loved ones whose sick or troubled. Believe me, it matters a LOT! I really felt loved & valued by these few people. (tears of joy)
I’m not alone
I’m also grateful that Jesus is the one who always stays with us and never leaves us alone. I really felt His love and faithfulness to me during this time. I can never ask for more. Jesus, has been enough for me to be strong, face and won this battle! Though I admit, I needed support & love from family and friends. I cannot expect them to be there for me all the time, but God?! God is with me. So I focus on Him, and I felt how blessed I am. My Father is with me, He knows what I’m going through and He is in full control.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. 2014 just kick-off, and I’m expecting more extraordinary days from my extraordinary God! Focus on Jesus. Jesus Loves Me. My Father, my Shepherd, my Lord.
