More and more in my walk with the Lord, I am learning that "in my weakness the Lord is made strong." Many of you know that my health is all over the place. By this, I mean, I have struggled with the ill effects of hypothyroidism and celiac disease. And although it took nearly two years to diagnose and two trips back to America, we are grateful that I am now well--thanks to medication and a strict diet. In the midst of my weakness the Lord called us to adopt Eliza and Ezra (when it was not yet known what I had). It seemed crazy, but again, in my weakness the Lord made strong.
Over the past month I have been plagued by a dull ache in my back and lower abdomen along with nausea and fatigue. We finally made it to the Dr. yesterday and a scan revealed that I have a benign cyst on my ovary. Because the cyst poses no threat at this point, I have to wait it out and pray that it goes away on its own. Again, with six little ones to shepherd, my weakness MUST be exchanged for His strength.
I beleive that the Lord is continually bringing me to a point where I must realize that I am so utterly dependent on Him! Our weakness for His strength.
