II Corinthians 12:9-10

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities... for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."
II Corinthians 12:9-10

An Apple a Day...

...doesn't always cut it. Before my surgery, I was told that I couldn't be sick the two weeks before the day of my spinal fusion. If I got sick, surgery would have to be rescheduled months later, which wouldn't have been until that summer.

And, of course, you can imagine what happened. I have always tended to catch a cold very easily. Literally a few days before the 2-week point, I came down with a cold. And they usually last at least a week with me. Well, my church and school immediately began praying about this situation that we hadn't even thought about before.

A couple days went by, and miraculously- by God's healing touch alone- I was completely over my cold. I'm pretty sure I've never gotten rid of a cold that quickly! But obviously, God wanted me to have that surgery, and He wanted us to trust Him to take care of things that we had no control of.

I did my part. I ate 10 times as much fruit and washed my hands every time I passed a sink. But ultimately, we can't control our health. But it's comforting to know that I have a loving God that does.

  1. Hi Katie,
    I am the mother of 14 year old Angelica, who is scheduled for spinal surgery on 7/19/2011. We are christians who love the Lord, speaking for myself, I am becomineg very anxious and afraid of all that will take place soon. With this said, I know that is is the Lotd who has brought me to your site. It has encouraged me and has given me much hope and insight into what to expect before and after her surgery. I plan to copy this site and make sure she reads it before and during her recovery. Im a little concerned how she'll handled all the details now, but out of all the resources I'v found for her to read, your site and spiritual encouragement as a young lady, has been farmost the best. I honor your strength, faith and care for those who are going thru this as well. I also honor your mom for supporting you and raising such a beautiful, God Loving Young Lady. Please pray for Angelica as we trust the Lord and place all in His care.
    PS. was wondering if your mom has created any blogs like you did to help the moms in this situtation. Our email is strongeagle@hotmail.com just in case the posting shows as anonymous. The Cornier Family
