Some of you may know my story, but for the sake of those that don't know I will share it again. Last year the doctors found a blood clot in my brain. For seven months I endured the poking and prodding of doctors and multiple doctor visits. They said there was a chance that I would be on blood thinners for the rest of my life, but thank God the blood clot dissolved in 6 months! I was so thankful and more than ready to leave that behind and start fresh in 2015.
The week before our birthday party, I started experiencing symptoms similar to what I had before they discovered the blood clot. I was having horrible muscle aches and painful electrical shocks going up my neck to my head. In addition to that, I had a burning sensation in my scalp on the same side they found the blood clot on. This was a major setback for me. Once again, I found myself in the hospital with the doctors trying to figure out what was wrong with me.
My initial response was one of defeat, but thank God I have family and friends that know the power of prayer! You see, what may seem like a setback is usually a setup for a comeback! Although things may look bad now, you never know what God has planned. He may be using the situation to position you for a major breakthrough. So, we must make up our minds to press our way through whatever may be trying to hold you down.
I'm sharing this because I believe there's someone out there that needs to hear this and be encouraged. You are not alone! God sometimes has us go through things that we may not understand at the moment. What we endure makes us stronger. Declare today that this setback is a setup for a major comeback!
I'll be praying for you! Don't you dare give up! 2015 is just beginning and the best is yet to come! I'll see you at the finish line! God bless!
