Take it to the Lord in Prayer
Yesterday, in the midst of all my grumpiness about not one but TWO root canals, I kept having the thought that this is going to be another way that God shows his provision to our family. And a certain peace did prevail. Really. I know it did not come through very much in what I wrote here, but it did nonetheless.
I didn't cry or get upset for one thing. That's progress, folks. I did ask God to provide for us, so that I can get this dental work done. The tech/nurse on the endodontist team told me that having infection in my mouth can cause my whole system to feel run down. No lie, really? I think my body already knew that. So this isn't just something to ignore. Ultimately it would end in an abcess if I don't.
Why is it that the place where the rubber meets the road, in our faith-journey as a family always about our health, and the expenses that our ill-health incurs? Well, I guess it prevents us from being smug.
"Lord, please have mercy on this day and please provide a way for me to get this dental work done. Help me to love and serve you better always. Amen."
