More Trust. Less Worry

Hello everyone!

I want to again thank-you for all your continued support, encouragement and prayers. Right now I’m having a difficult time. Yesterday was a particularly bad day for me which resulted in a knee dislocation, my regular shoulder pain and then falling over and hitting my face off my bookcase – I really am quite a disaster!! Unfortunately my legs aren’t working very well at the moment and I can’t really walk, they are extremely heavy, tingly and weak and therefore I’m stuck upstairs in bed. However, this has happened before and it will just take time for my legs to get back to normal and begin working again. This is just a small setback in my everyday life living with a chronic illness.

It seems hard to believe that in just 2 days time I will be heading off to London. After 18 weeks of waiting I will finally get to see the specialist and see if anything can be done to fix my shoulder so that it isn’t permanently out of place like it is right now. To be honest, although I don’t feel nervous I know that in the back of my mind questions are rubbling around. What if this new doctor can’t help me? What if my shoulder is left in this state? How will I cope? However I am so thankful for God constantly reminding me this week to trust more and do less worrying.

“All our fret and worry is caused by calculating without God.” Oswald Chambers. 

IMG_3519When I begin to worry God stops me and reminds me that He is in complete control, I know He is with me. I know that I shouldn’t be afraid and I know that God has the power to do anything. He has the power to do more than I can ever possibly imagine,

“Now to Him, who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.” Ephesians 3:20. 

How amazing it this verse? I love absolutely it. I can rest assured knowing that I have God right by side as I travel to London and have this appointment with Prof. Lambert. I know that I have absolutely nothing to worry about. God has the power to work a miracle in my life and make London go even better than I could ever dream or imagine.

I am so thankful that have I God right beside me, I thankful for this opportunity to go and see one of the best surgeons there is to deal with difficulties right now. I’m thankful for everyone’s continued love, support and prayers and I’m thankful that I can rely and trust on God, for he is in control.

With love,

  1. Will be praying for you and your encounter in London. Your faith has made you well were the words of our Lord Jesus. (Lk. 18:42; Mk. 10:52; Lk. 17:19, 8:48; Mt. 9:22; and Mk. 5:34). May you see His mercies and continue to know His presence. You are a blessing to me and am sure you are to many others. Keep testifying of His greatness and love Carla.
