I Am Thankful For The Lord
and Faith Building
As the Lord brings me through this weight loss journey I am seeing how He has built my faith up to this point. My whole life has been Him helping me through my struggles. No, He did not change the circumstances. But, as I endured and learned I became a stronger and better person because of them.
Let me share with you the story that happened today.
When I turned in my paperwork with the weight loss surgery center and showed them the work I had done with NOOM. They suggested I try to have my doctor use that to take some of my dietary monitoring off of the 6 mo. I went to to my doctor today with all the paperwork and everything. I said a quick prayer saying what ever way this turns out is ok. I will do what the Lord wants me to do.
I am thankful for the Lord
When I left the doctors office I was so happy. It appeared they were willing to use my NOOM weight loss record to take 4 mo off. I was like yes thank you Lord! You way is best. I was even encouraged to share everything with my uber driver. Who, of course, turned out to be a wonderful Christian man himself! It was a wonderful ride home.
Then, I get home, the ball drops. My doctors office calls and informed me I still need to do 5 more visits to monitor my diet. That the NOOM journal will not work. The way I did it is wonderful and what they are looking for. But what insurance is looking for is that I actually physically go into the office and talk to the doctor.
I am thankful for the Lord!
Well, I decided long before I talked to the doctor today that no matter what it is ok. It is in the Lords hands and I will do the 6 mo. if that is what is needed. In stead of getting depressed and thinking I can’t do this. God is once again providing a way to build my faith. I have so many working hard to get this surgery oked by the insurance. I know His hands are on it all. I just need to go step by step and follow Him the whole way. Praising His name for each step.
I am thankful for the Lord outside sources
