I have never before considered working in a doctors office but I have to say... God knows exactly what he is doing. I love the patients, they make my day brighter. I have been there only a short time and these sweet elderly people bring me gifts. The nurse asked me this week, "What are you doing for these patients to be bringing you gifts all the time?" I had one lady give me German chocolate, seriously chocolate... from... Germany. Thanks again Mrs. Smith! My goal is that when they visit the office they feel as if they are the only patient, they are #1, and that they feel like family. When they leave I expect a smile on their face and saying, "I can't wait to see you again soon". Most of the patients are diagnosed with cancer. I don't even think about that, I don't dwell on the negative... I see each day as an opportunity to make them feel special and cared about. They don't know it but I pray over them as they are sitting, waiting to be seen. I pray over the Doctor's health so that he can give 100% to the patients, I pray for the nurse... what a job she has. That lady has a lot of stress and she is so very good at what she does. Oh Jesus, she will be out of the office today so I will be extremely busy. God has not shown me why I am at this job yet and it may take me years to find out. It maybe b/c of emotional or physical healing for the staff and it could be for the patients? Then again it maybe so that I can gain medical knowledge that will be used in the mission field? What I do know is that this time will not be wasted, it will be for God's glory!
My health has gotten worse since I have started this job. I eat on the run everyday and it's starting to catch up with me. I feel terrible, sluggish, tired. I woke up at 2 am and can't go back to sleep and with this BIG day ahead it will make for a L O N G day. I have got to get my eating organized so that I can start my new healthy lifestyle on March 1st.
Join me in prayer today that it goes well without the "AWESOME" nurse there. I'm very nervous! I will need some B12 or something to keep my energy up today. God bless everyone!
