Around Here// I Found My Brave
The last month... goodness. It hasn't been easy. I've lived out some of my biggest fears, and yet, gratefully, have experienced such beautiful miracles all at the same time. The other day I called my mom, needing her encouragement and listening ear. In a moment of complete exhaustion I told her, "I am all out of brave." I really didn't feel like I could handle one more moment that would require my strength-- physical or emotional. Of course the next morning, when Max wasn't doing well, I found an added measure of brave was there inside of me. We went to yet another doctor appointment and we are preparing for lab results and further appointments this coming week.
It was a good reminder. When you feel like you have given all you've got, the Lord restores your energy and strength to carry on. I am praying that this week we will be led to the right doctor who will provide us with what we need to help Max overcome the bacterial infection and gastrointestinal problems that have been causing him such pain and discomfort.
