Hi there! Happy Friday to you! ❤ Yesterday morning, I received some news that granted me mixed emotions. Very shortly after sharing this post, where I talked about surgery being in my near future, my mom found out through a phone call to my insurance company that there was an update on my wisdom teeth surgery.
After talking to the oral surgeon a few weeks ago at the consultation we went to, I found out that my insurance is known for denying approval for the surgery that I need. Because of this, my mom and I were expecting to receive a call letting us know that the insurance would cover one tooth, or three of them – maybe even denying the request altogether. It was really a hit-or-miss situation, but I was expecting the insurance not to cooperate. Either way, I knew the Lord would provide regardless. ❤
So, when my mom came back inside after the phone call with my insurance company yesterday, I was surprised to see her beaming. My hopes were raised at the same moment my fears settled into the pit of my stomach. The next thing she told me was exactly what I wanted to hear, while at the same time was not at all what I was expecting.
My insurance approved the request and is paying for the surgery in full.
“I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry.” – Psalm 40:1
When we bring our requests before the Lord, He is faithful to take our hopes and dreams into His hands. Even when I had little faith in what my insurance was willing to do, the Lord used their approval to bless us.
Next Tuesday, I will walk into the same oral surgery office with financial peace – and with the Lord by my side. I can’t tell you how much this experience of learning to lean on His strength has already blessed me. I’m truly not afraid anymore, and I’m willing to do what He will have me go through – all for His glory.
When I wrote this post about overcoming medical fears, I had no idea the Lord would bring me this far. Nothing is impossible for the living God!!!
Prayer Request: The only thing I’m truly worried about is how the IV in pre-op will go, because I’ve never had one before. I would truly appreciate it if you could pray that would go well for me! ❤
Thank you so much for reading! It blesses me to share how the Lord is working in my life 🙂
