If you own cats, you know the look they give you when they are all cozied down taking a nap and you interrupt them with your caress. Shortly after this picture was taken, I couldn't help but give Zoey a lovey. Her expression upon awakening was one of being totally put out. Like I had ruined her day.
Where am I going with this? I am wondering if any of you have been interrupted by God lately? I have had a lot of time to ponder on my pre-transplant life. It all started with a major interruption. My rapid health decline sent my comfortable life into a tailspin. The job I had felt called to do was suddenly not possible to continue. The pain and stress of illness was consuming. God was asking me to travel down a bumpy road, one that I did NOT want to steer onto.
I had two choices at this time, I could submit to God's will for my life, or I could fight Him. I don't think I need to tell you this, but fighting God is a losing battle.
When I chose to yield to God's will, miracles began to happen in my life. God equipped me with the emotional tools I would need to maneuver down this rocky road. He gave me the strength and courage to handle the challenge; and through this difficulty I received the greatest gift of all, His strength, comfort, encouragement, and love.
If you are facing a Godly interruption, try to remember that when He places an abnormal calling on your life (for me it has been medical suffering), it is because He has abnormal results He wants to produce through you. I can only imagine the way God has used my story in the lives of others, but I look forward to the day when He will show me the incredibly abnormal things he did thanks to my abnormal calling.
May God bless you with the resources you need to travel down the detours he has set on your path. Trust Him and yield to His call.
We head to Pittsburgh tomorrow for appointments and a Bronch. Please pray that all goes well. Thank you all so much!
