I was thinking yesterday and earlier today…..even though I’ve suffered greatly, I am still truly blessed,because I have so many wonderful friends who love and support me. One who comes to mind reminded me when I was at a spiritual low that God allowed this to happen because He knew I would make it good…..He trusted me to bring good out of the bad with the gifts He has given me; the gift of gab and the gift of writing. For so long, MONTHS I fought and was angry and frustrated because I knew I had to get back to work and earn a living again. I was angry and frightened.I was anxious about my future and what would eventually happen to me. Being a lab technician, naturally I thought it would be in the lab doing research for it given the fact I was a serology specialist and I have a serologic/immunologic disease. Then my thoughts went back to the conversation I had with my friend earlier that day; out of the blue it came to me.God wants me to speak to others about this and if this is what He wants, I cannot argue with Him.I have to do HIS will,not MY will.It says as much in the Lords’ Prayer….THY will be done.It’s not about what I want to do,it’s about what He wants me to do.I need to follow His Spirit.It is that which I shall do :)I started to feel better physically after this,because I had stopped all resistance.I was no longer angry once I realized and accepted His will for me.I must do His work,and that I shall.
