Was I Bold?

It was fall, 1994. I had been diagnosed with closures of the carotid arteries and surgery was recommended, but I hesitated. The doctor who first diagnosed my problem said there was no danger expected from the surgery. The surgeon he referred me to concurred with what he said, but I still hesitated, still fearful.

I had a strong faith. I knew God always protected me and was always there for me. For that reason I knew I wasn’t scared, but still the hesitancy stayed with me.

I had a stroke following surgery, but I never gave up. I retaught myself how to type, how to talk and how to survive the stares that came when people first observed me following the stroke.

Was I bold? I think it was more accurate to say I was determined. Did God ever leave me? No, it us humans who leave God, not the other way around.

Short, but very sweet testimony to the power of a loving God, and the blessings He gives us of His faithfulness, no matter the circumstances.

Thanks for writing your clear testimony of bold faith rewarded! I'd like to experience more of the rich emotional texture behind this tremendous story; you might draw the reader in even further by illustrating in word-pictures the amazing feelings you experienced during the process. Good job, with lots of further potential!

The last paragraph sums it up nicely. However, I felt this was merely an introduction because I was ready to read more when it would no further scroll down :) Hint, hint!
