Press In

It had been so long. Time and time again, she sought help, just to leave feeling empty and discouraged.

Doctor after doctor she saw, but no one could help her.

For 12 long years, she had been subject to the same bleeding. The same situation. The same obstacle. No relief.

Every day she looked at her situation, and said “God, when? When will I see a change?”

She had done all that she knew how to do.

One day, she heard that Jesus was in town.

Although she was hurt, discouraged, disappointed, and exhausted, she knew that if she just pressed in and touched Him, even the hem of His garment, she would be made whole.

Eyes Wide Shut

Hey you!  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  

So, let's have a real conversation.  Have you ever gone through a period in your life where you felt like your eyes were opened, but you couldn't see a thing?  Like so much was going on that you needed a solution for,  and although you were looking in all the places that you thought were right, you couldn't find one to save your life?

In the fall of 1999, I had begun my second year of pharmacy school.  Although many would look at this as a major accomplishment, I felt like a complete failure.  I had always done well in school.  I certainly never had a problem with passing tests after I had studied.  For the first time in my life, I would study for a test, and fail.

 I would spend much of my weekends and my afternoons when I got home from class studying.  At times, I would stay up all night studying.  To no avail, I would still fail many tests.  I was blessed to pull off a 75, at times, and ecstatic when I saw anything above an 80!

This may not sound like a big deal to some people. I get that.  This was totally foreign to me, and I was not handling it well.

Then, the love of my life, my grandmother, fell really ill and passed away.

I felt like all the walls had come tumbling down around me.

I was in a really dark place.  I talked to friends.  I went to church.  I prayed.  I joined study groups.  I did all that I knew to do, and could not get any relief.  

My eyes were wide shut.
