Madison and I spent 7 hours in clinic today.... I couldn't even tell you how many times she had her blood pressure taken... It was so high that the nurses and doctors kept taking it over and over again. As you can tell by Madison's facial expressions she wasn't surprised when it kept reading HIGH!
As I sit her tonight, reflecting on our day; I'm pretty sure God just hit me in the head. So often I want problems resolved quickly, appointments to go quick, and answers to arrive quicker than my questions.... (Sound familiar?) Today, I was thinking (in my head) as they kept repeating and repeating the blood pressures, "Really, you think that her blood pressure is going to become normal that fast?" God tonight hit me in the head, "Really you think ____________is going to be better that fast?."
We serve a GREAT, WONDERFUL GOD AND HE IS THE QUICKEST AROUND..... However, it has to be his will. God has shown me in my life sometimes he makes me wait! God uses these situations to test our patience, faith, and trust in him. God uses these events to test our obedience to him!
Are we willing to let God work (in his time) or are we always trying to resolve it more quickly (in ours)?
A very deep question... I've been starring at it for the last 20+minutes.... I wish I could say I roll with God's timing, but I don't. If your reading my blog tonight thinking in your head, "this girl has it all together," or anything close, let me be the first to bust your bubble. I don't have it all together, but what I do have is a close relationship with Jesus Christ. I sinned today, I made God mad, and I disappointed him.... Part of growing is recognizing your faults, sins, etc. and asking for forgiveness. God loves us so much that tomorrow he won't even remember the sins I made today.
Isaiah 64:8 Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.
Go back to the question above and pray over it.....For I will.
****Side Note: Since Madison's blood pressure was so high we will be back in clinic tomorrow...this is how Madison feels about that....
She's not worried!
