Hope for 2019

Life is funny. Everyone has problems. I hate talking about mine but here I go about to reveal my deepest thoughts on the internet…Here are a couple things that have been going on in my life to give y ‘all some perspective.

  1. My biological Dad collapsed after open gifts this Christmas. Thank God that we were at a Christmas party and there were other people around because I freaked out. After spending my Christmas Eve and a couple early hours on Christmas day in the hospital we came to the conclusion that he probably had a seizure. Did I mention that I’m his only child? And our relationship is less than ideal.
  2. I feel nervous since I’m waiting to see a neurologist. I’m trying to find out if I have MS. This whole waiting thing is overrated. Right now I would take results over perseverance. I know that’s the wrong attitude. Sorry, Lord.

I’ll be glad when this season is over but I know that this too shall pass. That’s the amazing thing about life. It can be one thing, then another. It can be great and beautiful while making you want to throw up at the same time. In these times I see God’s work in my life even more clearly.

For Christmas I got a Christian book that just that morning I had told the Lord that I would love to read. My plan was to head down to the library. God had other plans. That’s normally how plans work in my life.

God has most importantly allowed me and my family to bless others. I hope to see this grow in 2019.

What’s your hope for 2019?

  1. So sorry, Autumn! Saying a prayer for you and for your dad right now – prayers for healing, for wisdom, and for peace in the waiting. I have a good friend who had adult onset epilepsy. She’s doing fantastic now, but it took some time to get medications figured out. May the Lord guide both your physicians and your father’s to the correct treatment.

    He is good, no matter what. In many of my own waiting times, I’ve enjoyed Psalm 27:14 – “Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage. Wait for the Lord!”
