Comment of the Week
I remember when I first read this post. I was at a point where I felt alone; all I wanted was someone to say ‘Are you okay?’ ‘Are you feeling better now?’ or even just ‘How are you?’ But no one did what I expected them to.
I had just come back from hospital when I decided to read your blog and I saw this article, I read it and it actually brought tears to my eyes.
Without making it too long, what had happened was I had had an operation in December 2010, I was upset, I had never had an operation before and it was something which needed 6-8 weeks to heal. I went in to 2011 tired, weak, feeling sluggish – it was horrible.
Like you said its these moments which draw you closer to God – which is what happened, before having the operation when I was being given the anesthetic all I could do was call on God’s name, when I had to spend the night in the hospital by myself after the operation, all I could do was talk to God. Even afterwards I had to keep getting my dressing changed – it hurt so much the first time I cried, my poor mum had too watch me cry; all I could do was call on God.
My wonderful mother helped me so much; even though she was sick herself she helped me so much, she went everywhere with me, because I couldn’t be left alone. Throughout this whole experience I only learned one thing, I expected many people to care for me, or give me attention but no one did, but the entire time God stayed with me and because physically speaking He couldn’t be with me He used my mum, but He never stopped caring about me. Even though many may have forgotten or not realized how I was feeling God cared and always reassured me that He was right beside me.
I really do appreciate you sharing this with us all. I wanted to express what I felt when I first read this post but I decided to wait until I overcame that feeling. I’m also much better today, than I was then
