Having Faith and Trusting God

Yesterday I was extremely taken off guard by things. Don’t get me wrong, I knew she was going to be having surgery soon; like I mentioned in this post, if Dr S thought she needed surgery it was just a matter of time before it was scheduled. I however, didn’t think it would be this soon; I honestly thought we had a week or two (I’m a very “plan ahead” type girl…). I’m better today. Partly because I’m keeping a beautiful little blue eyed girl, Haidyn, who is doing a wonderful job with keeping my mind off of things (thank you Ashley for letting me watch her today!)

I have complete Faith in the Lord as well as the physicians. I know that this is his plan and I know that he will get us through this. I wish I knew why certain things happened in life, and why certain people have to go through so much heartache and pain. Back when my mom had her first anerism I thought that was it, for that particular journey at least; never in my wildest dreams did I think we would travel down this road again (it should be a law that you can’t go down the same path more than once, sigh…). My mom has been through so much, so many surgerys and procedures for several different things, I just hope and pray that at age 52 and well over 10 surgeries for multiple things that this will be her last surgery and she can somewhat have a normal life. She deserves that!

I would lie if I said I wasn’t nervous or scared; but how can I not be—this surgery in itself is very risky, not to mention this is the 2nd time she is having it done. I’m very scared and nervous that she has to go through this, however, with all that being said, I DO have Faith through this and I am trying going to be as positive as I can possibly be. I know our God is an amazing God; I trust in him and know that he will get us through this.

1 Peter 5:7 Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.

Thank you for the prayers and please keep them coming, my mother and I as well as our family will def. need them throughout the next couple days!!!!

He is guiding the way honey! Have faith in Him. I have been thinking about you a lot! I am praying for you and your mom. Stay positive and remember, everything is happening for a reason. God has His plans.

Love you,

I know in times like these it is easy to lose faith in God, or to question Him on way he is doing this to you... I am VERY proud of you for not losing the focus. I know you want to be strong but you feel like falling apart and giving up. I honor and respect you in so many ways. You are an encouragement to me. When you look back at this momment someday, you will laugh and say, "So THAT'S why God let those things happen!" Like you always say, there is a reason for all of this, and only God knows the plan for your life. I do know this, he has made you a strong person and an encouragement to others. For those who have never really experienced "tough" times yet or for those who are living a "peachy" life, reading your story makes them understand and realize that they need to appreciate THEIR life and not take it for granted. I'm thinking you are one of God's angels that he sent down to all of us... so hang in there and enjoy the special moments now!

Prayers for everyone. Sometimes God's plan is not always clear but he always has a reason for everything.

Tiffany, I know you have a lot of things on your mind right now. I just wanted to take a minute and tell you that I'm so happy you found my blog. I have enjoyed getting to know you and I admire your strong faith! I wish I could approach IF with such confidence and be able to entirely put my trust in the fact that God is in control. I know he is, in my head, but sometimes my heart forgets. Thank you for sharing that. I will keep you and your family in my prayers this week. At work, we begin our day with a moment of silence at 8:05....I'll be praying for you then! Hang in there.
