Expect the Unexpected

They say the only things that are guaranteed in life are death and taxes. But I’ll add to that and say the unexpected is also a guarantee! Just when you think things are a little smoother and things are going great, something unexpected will come up. You can count on it.

My unexpected happened this past Thursday. I broke a tooth a couple weeks ago and finally was able to get to the dentist this past week. Nothing worse than a toothache and earache. I’ve had an earache since my biopsy a few months ago and it’s been a literal pain. So, I was so glad to get to the dentist and get it taken care of. We went through all the normal dental visit stuff….xrays, exam, etc. While I was there, the dentist found a lesion on my soft palate on the left. It’s fairly small and could just be dysplaysia but with my history, he suggested seeing an ENT and doing a biopsy and removing it.

To say that this was unexpected is an understatement. I felt like I got a suckerpunch to the gut. But when I think about it, that broken tooth was a God thing! Had I not gone to the dentist, this could have been a very different post. So, God has His hand in the middle of all of it. The devil sees how good things have been for me lately. He sees that I am feeling more like myself and that things in my life are really good for once! And he hates it so he has to throw me a curveball hoping that I will cave and go back to that dark place of anger and bitterness and sadness. Too bad for him, that I know a place of light and love and happiness and gratefulness for this life. Even in the middle of all this mess – where unexpected things happen! Because no matter what happens, My Jesus has me in the palm of His hand and He has a plan for me! I don’t have to know what happens next – because He sees what I cannot and no matter where He takes me, I’m gonna be just fine. I will stay positive and I will stay thankful for all the blessings in my life.

God is my comfort and my strength – even in the middle of all the unexpected things that happen. Makes me think about the song “This Too Shall Pass” by Larry Fleet and Zach Williams. Good tunes and truth in those words. You’re not alone and the troubles won’t last – Just remember Brothers and Sisters, THIS TOO SHALL PASS!

So, this week’s lesson was to expect the unexpected. As shocking and gut wrenching as what you may be going through is, you just have to remember that God is in control of it all! He knows best and no matter what happens, He’s going to use this for your good. Don’t get discouraged and don’t be afraid – be strong and courageous and always lean on Him and His promises to you. He’s a good, good Father! No matter what!

Sending out love and prayers for all of you who have had some unexpected things surface too. This too shall pass.

Much Love,

  1. You are an inspiration to all! πŸ™ that the lesion is negative! Hugs! 😘


  2. I am always in awe at how Jesus watches over us. Diseases are in our genitics and as awful as they are they develop the attributes God wants for us to come back to him. I am glad you have found it and get it taken care of. Keep your faith dear and don’t give satan credit for to much. I am on the path I belong and all that comes to me was planned. I will succeed and so will you. Keep your faith it will take you to those golden streets. Prayers are with you always.
