Alyssa and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Let me talk about what happened today. and how God took this day, and turned it around.
Went to therapy for a vestibular dysfunction like usual- when she said the correlation of the dizziness seems to be more geared towards the central nervous system. And suggested seeing a neurologist.
Got a neurologist appointment. Was told about possible diagnoses/testing I need to do. That upset me and made me just overwhelmed.
Car got stolen
Dog peed and pooped everywhere when I got home.
Let’s go back to number 3 shall we LOL? I come out of the parking lot, and my car was no where to be found. I am on the phone with my mom basically like:
I walk everywhere around the parking lot and panic. The cops come, and I am hyperventilating crying totally just a wreck because I am sick and tired of being sick and tired and my car is GONE. LOL.P.S. Idk why I share such personal details of my life but here we are. Anyways- So the cop asks me to retrace my steps. Meanwhile I am thinking “ Breckan and I have no other car”, “Harrison’s home alone ( my pup)”, “ how will we get home for thanksgiving” just to name a few . We go to where I said I parked it’s not there, I know the exact time I got there, I know the type of cars that were next to me, I know everything so it seems. So we keep walking and then… Not too far away in the distance.. Is the car.
How the car got to that spot is unknown LOL. But the car is safe with its rightful owners. As I am writing this down, the Lord is revealing to me that sometimes we search for the right answers, the right diagnoses, the right streets of life. Without realizing that we had the truth with us the whole time,.We look in all what looks like the right streets, but we don’t look right ahead of us. We think we know everything, all the details that gather up to our futures, or to how things should play out. But man do we get decieved. LOL This journey, hasn’t been easy for Breckan and I. The enemy is really attacking and here’s the thing he won’t succeed. He’s physically incapable of taking our joy, he has no power at all but what he can do is deceive us. That’s his job to twist and cloud us with deception.
This deception causes us to believe that the enemy has power, when he has none. This deception that worst case scenarios will happen. Let me tell you it’s not the truth. It’s not!
I know I rely a lot on my own strength. Why should I though? When I literally have the VEHICLE to rely on God’s strength. We can stand on the WORD to bring us strength and lean on the lord.In any season, no matter what happens, the Lord is still good. God has never let go. Let’s remember that on days like this.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
