I Come to Realize:
That your life is planned out! I knew it since high school—I predicted something that would happen when I reached near a certain age and it did—In fact, I was so ill that my doctor couldn’t sleep for his concern in me. (I had been in intensive care unit for a number of days with heart racing, collapsed lung) As I was healing, he asked, “What keeps me going?”
I told him thru prayers and faith. I was so sick, even watching TV was far from my mind—I only concentrated on getting better—
As I went thru the doorstep of my home, tears rushed down my face—knowing that I just about didn’t have this chance. I realized I had more to do in life. (I had a home health care nurse take care of me for a week or two).
When I went to the surgeon’s office for the health check, my doctor went straight to the waiting area to see my two children (unexpected). I knew then one reason why I had to live.
Ever since then, I view life at a different angle; for one reason it’s because I’m still here and another reason is that I felt HIS presence and peace during my struggles in this life.
There are signs of his presence to this day; some are able to feel and see it and some cannot see. But HE does work in our lives; through our heart, mind, and soul if we only allow, notice or pay close attention to it—because He planned it out for us!
