radioactive serenity


In about an hour and a half, I will be radioactive.

My doctor suspects that my hyperthyroidism has returned so I’m going to undergo a thyroid scan to check if that is the case.  I have a feeling he’s right.  Tremors.  Palpitations.  Rapid weight loss.  All signs point to hyperthyroidism.

Even the slightest possibility of such a recurrence would normally be enough to make me fret but i feel strangely calm as I sit on this tiled block at the hospital lobby.

No, scratch that.  This feeling isn’t strange at all.  It actually makes perfect sense.  I mean, why should I be overcome with fear and anxiety when I know that God is with me?

He is omnipotent and omniscient.  Everything that happens is according to His plan and purpose. As Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
