Yeah, basically I had no intention of starting my day off with a spectacular nosebleed. But sometimes it happens.
It’s a bit unnerving to see that much blood coming out of your nose, especially when it doesn’t seem to want to stop. The rest of the day involved a trip to Urgent Care and a day spent at home resting.
Here I am, 18 or so hours later (and currently nosebleed-free), writing these words and thanking God that it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
Maybe days like these will help you to appreciate your health a little bit more. I know I probably won’t take mine for granted any more.
Also, it makes me appreciate even more the grace of God that wakes me up every morning and sings me to sleep every night. Without that grace, I’d be screwed.
I’m learning not to take anything in this life for granted but to trust God for everything in every moment, casting all my cares on Him and leaning on His understanding and not mine. It’s another step toward my declaration of utter and total dependence on God that will only increase and grow as I get older.
