multitude monday

October 3, 2011

i

t’s been a roller coaster kind of day around here.

i woke up later than usual this morning with a terrible headache and a slight cold—not a good combination for a monday morning, if you ask me.

add to that the fact that we were getting “back-to-school” after mommy being gone last week.  if craziness and chaos are normal after being off for a week, then i guess you could say it was a normal day.

i then get a call from my doctor’s office letting me know that all of my bloodwork came back totally normal.  and while i know i should’ve been thrilled about that, i have to admit that i struggled with it for a bit.

quite honestly, i think i had been sort-of hoping that they’d find “something” that was easily remedied.  but no.

instead, i am stuck with the diagnosis of premenopause, and the reality that it could last anywhere from 5-10 years.

you know, deep down, i think i knew that all of this was just premenopause.  i think i knew that there was no easy answer or quick fix.

after praying about it for a bit and giving it time to sink in, i realized that i have a choice.

i can either accept this as God’s plan for me—a season—and make the most of it; OR i can resent it, fight it, and be miserable, both spiritually and physically.

i am choosing to accept.

do i like it?  no.  not.at.all.

but because i have tasted and seen that the Lord is good, because i have walked through other dark valleys in this life and have come out better for it, i am accepting it.

i know it won’t be easy.  but Jesus didn’t promise us an easy life, did he?

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
