My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. Ps.62:5
All I do is wait. I'm waiting now to find the results of my second blood tests. Are my kidney functions the same as two weeks ago, when they were not functioning well? The three blood tests that showed kidney problems have been re-tested. But, I haven't heard the results. Waiting is so hard.
When you have to wait, you imagine all sorts of things. You imagine your life with kidney disease and all of the terrible problems that come with that. Then, you imagine that this could all be a fluke. Hoping and praying brings some peace, but the clock moves slowly when you're waiting for a phone call.
Whatever the result, my faith rests in God. He is the giver of my life and health. He has always been my comfort and strength when I need Him. The pain and frustration is real, but I also feel that I'm held tight in God's strong hand.
