Happy Monday! If you are looking for an edgy fashion post today, you have come to the wrong place. But if you are looking for a little Monday Motivation, keep reading. It has been on my heart to post this for a few days, but I have really struggled with doing so for some reason.
This photo isn’t super relevant, but isn’t the sunrise beautiful?! I took it this weekend.
Recently, I lost my health insurance. To make a long story short, I trusted that the situation was being handled, and it wasn’t. I have a chronic illness, so without insurance, I honestly can not afford to keep myself alive. When I explained the situation at work, I was able to be added to my company’s insurance policy. The only issue was that my insurance wouldn’t be effective until the next month, and I had a medical treatment that I had to receive every six weeks coming up.
I tried so hard to find an immediate solution. I looked into just paying for the infusion out of pocket, but I realized it would take me almost 4 years to pay for the infusion if I paid $100 a month with no interest. My only choice was basically to suck it up and have the infusion 9 weeks out instead of 6 weeks out. I usually spend about 5 days pre-infusion just feeling like a zombie with no energy. I had no idea how I was going to make it 3 weeks like that.
After a weekend of allowing myself to sulk, I took action. I started praying. I prayed that God would give me the energy to get through the work day. And I woke up Monday morning with so much energy that it probably should have been illegal. God has carried me like that for almost three weeks now – no medications and no infusion.
Last week was one of the busiest weeks of my year, and I thrived. Saturday I ended up walking over seven miles!!! And I know that I couldn’t have done it without God. And when things went wrong, I felt an overwhelming calmness and strength to handle the situation. I have felt like I was (literally) living on a prayer for the past three weeks.
I know that Mondays are rough, but if you ask for God’s help, he will get you through the day/week/month/valley/darkness… whatever you are dealing with. And I will always be glad to pray for you!
Thanks for taking time out of your day to read this. Now go out there & kick Monday’s butt!
