Facebook continues to remind me of memories; some sweet, some not so sweet.
This time last year, I was going through so much with my “female issues.” I’ll never forget the overwhelming feelings as I was facing not only the procedure involved with having a biopsy but the results of that biopsy.
A year later, I am SO proud to be on the other side of this. I kept saying that when I was enduring all of the tests, procedures, surgery, and complications that followed. “I just want to be on the other side of this …” I would stress to everyone around me. They would respond with, “And you will be, but it just takes time …”
It seems like it is our worst enemy when you really want to be healed from something like this. Or when your heart is hurting, no matter the cause. You just want to get through it and not have it hurt so much.
I do love the Facebook memories the majority of the time. It’s a reminder in situations like this of how far we have come.
A year later, I can definitely tell you that the surgery was the absolute best thing I could have done! It has been so incredibly freeing not to have to worry about that problem any more. There were so many thoughts and feelings swirling around at that time, but it’s been a blessing. After going through everything that I had to endure (two surgeries and three in-office procedures after that), I am finally on the other side of this thing now! It took until May of this year for everything to finally work and for me to be free of any issues.
This all came back to the forefront of my mind due to a Facebook post from a year ago. On this day one year ago, I posted praises to God because my biopsy indicated I did NOT have cancer. Praises, praises, and more praises!
Where were you a year ago, and how far have you come? Do you ever just sit and think about the things that God has helped you through and how your life has improved in a year’s time?
Better yet, do you thank God for his protection and how far you’ve come?
