When I am weak, then I am strong...

Are You Kidding?

A phone call to the doctors office a few days ago went something like this:
Me: Hi, I have a problem and I need to make an appointment with the doctor.
Receptionist: She isn't here today. She's only in this office on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Me: Good, could I make an appointment for tomorrow?
Receptionist: No, you have to call back tomorrow.
Me: Are you kidding?
Receptionist: No, thanks for calling, dial tone......
Hmmmm. I guess she wasn't kidding. Not only did I not get an appointment, but I felt disappointment at not getting anywhere. 
A few months ago my doctor ordered blood work. I received a bill from the lab for over $1,200. I couldn't believe it. I called the doctors office wondering what the results were. The receptionist told me "if no one called you, then everything is okay."  She must be clairvoyant---she knows someone looked at the results. A week after that, my doctor sent me to a specialist. I'm still waiting to hear the results from those tests that I would hear from the "next day".
I'm not sure what's going on in each of these doctors offices, they must be busy and over worked. 
It occurred to me how blessed I am to get answers from the Lord. When I pray, He never puts me on hold. He never puts my "test results" in a pile on His desk. He is my constant companion.
2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
