This is short and sweet. I know so many of you have been praying for me and I haven't updated everyone on everything that's been going on. I'm gong to quickly update everyone and tell you something exciting that I'm endeavoring to do after much thought and prayer!
Kevin and I are driving to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota this Saturday. We are excited to have some help, but we are scared that the doctors won't know why things are happening and progressing. I'm fully relying on God and that HE IS IN CONTROL. Worrying or fretting doesn't do anything. I can either pray or worry, but I refuse to do both!
Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I'm leaving to go to Mayo, praise the Lord. My doctors here along with Hopkins are all working together to try to see what is actually the best course of treatment. I'm glad they are all working together as a team. Mayo initially turned me down and said that if John's Hopkins couldn't fix me, they wouldn't be able to, either, but the doctors here and at Hopkins explained how sick I am and how I'm getting worse and not better, they quicly decided to see me, which I am grateful for, but I know it's everyone's prayers that got me in there! I know how God works. it's unbelievable how God worked it all out. We were afraid of not having enough money to pay for the trip there and back plus another trip to Dallas tomorrow.But God provided the exact amount we needed and God is just so good. I am so thankful for all God has done in my life.
Life is good. God is good, no matter what. Even in trials, joy in life comes from within. Sure you can have days that are horrible and you don't understand where God is, but I promise you, clinging to HOPE, FAITH, LOVE and the fact that God is our biggest fan, wanting us to press on. He will provide JUST WHAT WE NEED. Not more than what we need, just what we need. ALSO cling to the Joy He promises. The Joy of the Lord can be our strength if we well HIM have full reign in our lives.
I say that to say that I'm not going to be using blogspot much anymore. I'm going to try to get my old blogs over to the new WEBSITE I am launching. The website will be more like a blog/website that I hope to write in several times a week. I want to share my heart, devotionals, my health issues, and what God is teaching me. I hope to have the web site up THIS NEXT WEEK. So pray that I figure it all out and that you all will enjoy it and pass it on. I will share the URL and everything ELSE as soon as it's up.
I love you friends and family! God is my healer, my strength, and when you look at me, please don't look at me as someone who is so sick and struggles. Please look at me as someone who has so much love in their life, and that God is so good to me and I'm so happy and the Joy of the Lord is my strength. These sicknesses are temporal I can't wait for my heavenly body!!!
Thanks again, and look at my website when I share its name and everything with you!!! :)
Love, Ami :)
