So, with all that said, how in the world could something come up? Well, on April 28, it did. Dr. Simpson said they saw something on the ultrasound that was different than a regular cyst I've had in the past and it was much more defined and solid. She said she would like to take a biopsy and could I come back at 12:30 pm. Of course, I said. Glad to get it all done in one day, I alerted my family that I would be later than expected and then went to The Container Store to console myself for a little bit. I didn't put it on facebook or tell a lot of people, just family. I felt really at peace. Even if this was cancer, I still knew God had allowed it for a reason in my life and I would do my best to deal with it with grace. So during that next hour or so, I prayed for God's peace, which I got. I prayed for direction, which I got. And I prayed for it to be nothing... which ultimately, I got. I didn't find out that it was normal until that Thursday though so it was more than a few days of prayer and a little worry. Let's face it, these breasts I have now have never really done much for me except cause my worry and aggravation so frankly, I don't care if they stay or go.
But walking through the Container Store, a very dear friend sent this to me on my cell phone...
You see, my friend knows me so well, she knows I love a list and I am a planner. However, she had no idea what was going on and where I was! But God did. This is the first time she's sent me anything like this or shared her devotional!!! Totally out of the blue, God said, "I know you are a planner but I need you to stop having to have everything just so, I need to bless you and I can't do that if you've got everything mapped out to a tee."
When I told her what was happening she prayed and was blown away at what the Lord had shared with us through this passage. Little did either one of us know that in just one week, she would need these verses too for something she was going to go through!! God is ALWAYS on time.
So, I'll go back for a follow up ultrasound in three months and I still believe everything will be fine. But if it's not, then I'm going to be ok with that too. I am assured of this... everything that ever happens to me has been filtered through the hands of The Almighty and He will see me through it. It's just that simple.
Keep it Simple,
