When I was a little girl (and even now) I would dread going to the doctor. I can’t give a valid reason as to why I didn’t like it, all I know is that even to this day I am willing to try almost every ‘at-home’ remedy before I would surrender and call the doctor who knew exactly what was wrong and would make me better in no time.
My whole life it has never crossed my mind that I could reach a point where I wouldn’t be able to afford to go to a Doctor, or to have insurance.
We served over 230 people at Open Door Ministries of High Point and we partnered with a program from Wake Forest ‘DEAC.’ (Delivering Equal Access to Care.) Medical Students from Wake came out and provided free health screenings, blood pressure checks, and lots of basic check ups that some of them haven’t had in a long time.
It was such a blessing to me as they were coming out to get their food they were bragging “Guess what?!? They said I am healthy, my sugar is good!” They were so grateful for the doctors.
Someone once said “You don’t know what cha got till it’s gone” and I believe that is so true. I take for granted being able to choose what I want to eat for every meal, to deny seconds because I believe the food will be there tomorrow, affording my own personal transportation, having the ability to see any doctor that I may need to see and so much more.
Today as you are reading this, my prayer for you is that you would never lose the wonder… Be still dear one and know that God is God. Have a grateful heart daily for even the smallest necessitates to the biggest joys. Find something to be thankful for in every circumstance because everything can change in a blink of an eye. I hope that you are blessed from reading this and I pray that you would have a week full of lots to be thankful for!
