One thing I have come to see, through a lifetime of surgeries…pain…and deep heartache; is that God never wastes what He allows. Even as a young girl…facing knee surgery after knee surgery…God was at work.
As I think back on my life…I remember a time, when I was sent to another orthopedic surgeon, in Lansing, Michigan. Being so young, I never realized I was entering a university hospital…that is until I was wheeled into the operating room.
As the nurses pushed me into the operating room, I began to see cameras and microphones hanging down around me and there were huge windows with curtains, which I was told, would be opened, after being put to sleep.
Even before going through all of this, I was introduced to another new roommate…and as we got to know each other…before going to surgery; she questioned me, as to how I was able to go through so much, at such a young age. As I began to tell her about Jesus; she said, I want to know Jesus too; so after my pastor arrived…he led her to the Lord, while they wheeled me down to the operating room, where my knees were about to become famous, before a classroom of medical students.
You know…sometimes we just don’t always understand the reasoning behind our circumstance…that is, until we begin to see a powerful God at work within our lives!
