God's Timing

I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you.
Isaiah 46:4
I've been under stress and health issues lately. Today I came home from my weekly Dr. appt. Yes I said weekly. I sat down and told my hubby I'm so stress I'm about ready to burst. He said what do you do to relieve stress. Well I would of said a tub of M & M ice cream but I can't have that right now. I have to be careful what I eat. So what do you you do to relieve stress I'm open for ideas.
I wanted to read God's word but I can't sit still when I'm stressed so that makes it hard to read God's word. I tried to pray but just couldn't be still to hear God.
Then this afternoon I got a lovely card from a friend at church. It had the above verse from Isaiah in it. How perfect. God will sustain me, He will kept me going. He will carry me when I can no longer feel like I can keep going. What an awesome God we have. He sent me the verse I needed on the day I needed it.
So I know you want to know what is going on. Well first is this years mission trip we take in June. It is 10 days after my surgery and we just don't have enough people for VBS this time. I feel like I'm letting the kids down this year. As the person planning I just don't know how to stretch the people we do have. This is the first year I'm not excited about the mission trip. I feel sad the kids are not getting the best they deserve.
Next I have several health issues. I'm not giving details but I have had 3 x-rays, 2 CT scans, 1 ultra sound, numerous medications and every blood work possible I believe. I have had a cough since Nov. when I had H1N1 and that was the start of all this. Every time someone runs a test they find a new problem. I have surgery in June and a surgical procedure to follow at a later date.

I am so glad you filled us in...I will be praying.
I know about the stress....it is a hard thing to overcome especially when you do not see an end to the issues that are causing.
I wish I had some great advice....but I don't. I do pray that the doctors will soon find out what is going on and there will be a quick resolution. I can't imagine having all this going on and renovations at the same time.
Hold on girl.....He is holding you...even if you can not feel it. He loves you so!
Lean on Him....He can handle the weight. :)
