Strength, Philippians 4:13

My daughter has a wart on the top of her heal. It started as just a little thing but as time went on it grew much bigger. She is having trouble wearing shoes because it rubs and irritates it. We had tried just about every kind of medicine we could get our hands on but nothing seemed to work so we made a doctor’s appointment. The first appointment we went to the doctor gave us an opportunity to choose from the treatment that was readily available. As the doctor was explaining the process my wife and I had made our decision on which one but our daughter made hers out loud. The first option was to do a treatment plan coming back every two weeks for a long while and the other one was a one time treatment of liquid nitrogen. That one Is the one we had picked but as soon as our daughter saw the liquid nitrogen bottle she froze up, no pun intended. So we opted for the long-term treatment but with little success. we were sitting at home a couple weeks later and I told our daughter that we needed to do the other treatment because they can’t afford to keep going back and forth to the doctor. She said that she was scared. So I told her that God will be with her and give her the strength to get through it. so she agreed and we prayed before her next doctor visit. I was so proud of our little girl she walked in I did the treatment which involved scraping off the bad part of the wart first before the liquid nitrogen through the whole process she stayed completely still and didn’t even flinch. Sometimes life can throw us curve balls, things that can be very scary. With God in our corner leading us, guiding us, and carrying us through all these trials we can get through anything. Dear kind Heavenly Father thank you for always being with us innocent around us thank you for always comforting us when we are scared and guiding us through the darkness. Heavenly Father you are our Rock and our salvation, in Jesus precious name amen.
