Breakthrough comes in small, unexpected packages. I've been in need of certain tests for a while now. I've been praying about it and not sure what to do. I knew the endocrinologist would be a great person to consult because what I'm dealing with is definitely an endocrine issue as per my naturopath, but I was in tears the other day because I can't get in there until the end of February and I'm beyond exhausted with everything. While in tears I cried out to God, "I can't do this any more." Today, He answered, "No, you can't, BUT I can and will."

I don't know why I ever doubt or question this other than I'm human. He once again reminded me that He has bigger and better plans. He's also showing me how much He's changing my life when I'm willing to give Him control - a daily struggle for me. A nurse at my doctor's office even said how much better I look now since a few months ago. I not only credit this to working with my naturopath but also to what God is at work doing.

Sitting back and listening to God isn't always easy, but it is always rewarding. He's led me down this path for a reason and once again I'm reminded I must trust Him to lead me through and out the other side. It's no wonder that my word of focus this year is "health." So much to learn, so many ways to grow, God remains in control though.
