As I faced doctors’ appointments and surgery earlier this year, I heard comments of people worried that I was alone. Being single, I don’t have a spouse to go with me or support me through a health journey. While the support of a spouse is comforting, God sent me comfort other ways. I had a friend who drove me to 3 appointments and spoke up during some overwhelming times. I had friends praying for me, sending me cards and text messages, giving me hugs at church. I had the help of my parents at surgery time.
While I went to my second opinion appointments without another person, I know God was with me. He has been with me for many years through both good times and bad. God doesn’t leave just because I hear a diagnosis that I don’t like. God’s faithfulness becomes more precious through health issues.
God promises so many times in His word that He will never leave us. He is close, so I am never alone.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for being close no matter what is going on in my life. Thank You that I don’t ever have to be alone, no matter who in this life is beside me.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
