When I heard the song Faithful (Steven Curtis Chapman), it immediately made an impression on me. Since November 19, 2009, I had a lot of fears. I had nightmares, I wondered how long it would take me to heal. I was frustrated. I got irritated. I couldn’t figure out why I was the one to get hit by the truck, why my arm was stuck in a cast, and why my knee hurt. I mean seriously, this is the kind of stuff that happens to people in movies or on the news, not in real life. But apparently it does happen in real life.
Since hearing the song, I have gained a whole new perspective. No matter what God is faithful. In our darkest hours, on our happiest days. God is so faithful.
So although I still don’t understand why I was hit, why my knee hurts or why I’m stuck in a cast, I do understand that God is faithful. I’m alive, and that’s what counts. This cast will eventually come off. My knee will eventually heal. And hopefully my nightmares will stop and I won’t be scared of cars or crossing streets. When will any of this happen? I have no idea. Do I want to know? Well, kind of. But I’m content with where I am, knowing that God has perfect timing for everything.
Always remember – God is faithful. And please keep praying for my recovery 🙂
P.S. – Listen to the song Faithful by Steven Curtis Chapman
“I will proclaim it to the world/I will declare it to my heart/and sing it when the sun is shining/I will scream it in the dark”
