His way are not my ways...

This week has flown by. It's been a little hectic and God has surprised me more than once.

This morning I was left confused and frustrated after my son's clinical therapy evaluation was canceled not once but TWICE this week. What the heck?! I felt like screaming!

I received a call last Friday to let me know that the Occupational Therapist we saw last week would like him to attend his clinical therapy for 4-6 weeks before we move forward with any OT. Argh! I'm still not totally sure if I agree with this, and I am considering getting a second opinion. However, I'm trying to remain at peace knowing that God has a hand in all of this, and perhaps it would be best to start with the clinical therapist for a while first. It would be less overwhelming for my son, and what's the harm in waiting a little? So...I've been looking forward to meeting this clinical therapist that was recommended to us, and supposedly specializes in OCD. We made the appointment almost a month ago. It's ridiculous how long you have to wait to get into some of these places...So, that's our next move.

Then? I got a call on Tuesday morning asking me to reschedule (the appointment I had waited a month for) because our therapist would not be in the office that day. Argh. Well, ok, I guess. In the process of rescheduling I realized they didn't even have me scheduled with the right person anyway. Damn! We rescheduled and I was assured we would be meeting with the right therapist on Thursday. Today.

My wake up call this morning?

The receptionist calling me to say there was a problem with our insurance, and we were showing ineligible. What?!

I grab a cup of coffee, call the insurance company, and learn we are just fine-covered! I call the therapist's office back, relay this info, and they tell me there must be some glitch in the system, because they cannot pull him up as insured, and that they have no choice but to reschedule. It's office policy.

Fine, I'll pay out of pocket!

I ask how much the fee is. It's ridiculous. But, I'll pay it anyway. We've been waiting for a month, and I start fuming, and feeling helpless. Then...I'm reminded of this verse...

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways", declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." ~Isaiah 55:8-9

I stopped.

Lord, I have no idea what you're up to, but give me a peace over your plan. Help me to surrender control to you, and walk in your promises...

I told her if there was a glitch in their system and my insurance is telling me I'm covered I just didn't see the point in paying out of pocket. It would be a matter of their computer working tomorrow and me spending a huge amount of money I don't need to. Why would I throw that money down the drain? Because I'm grasping at the chance to control something I cannot? I'm learning that I can either exhaust myself trying to control everything, or live in the peace of knowing only He can.

For whatever reason, God did not want us at that appointment this week. I cannot for the life of me figure out why, but I have to trust in Him.

I rescheduled. Again.

After reading your post, I saw this on Pinterest and thought of you.

My husband is always reminding me to take time before jumping into something.

You just reminded me to do the same thing.

Good for you for doing your best. It's not your fault they're messing up - keeping cool isn't always easy.

Wow..definitely agree. It can be frustrating but it sounds like it will all work out in the end. Who knows that therapist could have been having a bad day and not really been focused.
Hoping the next appointment goes on as planned for you!

I'm so sorry that they keep rescheduling you, that is so frustrating. Good for you for having peace or finding peace about it. That's hard to do but it tends to make everything better when you do! God is in control!! :)

Insurance....gah. That could fuel me for hours...but I'll save the tangent.

I love how you're looking at this...what's meant to be, will be.

You have the right attitude, although it's so hard sometimes to wait for God's divine plan to unfold. I get frustrated when things don't work out like I'd hoped/planned.

I hope you don't have to wait long for your appointment, and I hope you get to keep it (with the right person) on the right day. Good luck!

And thanks so much for becoming a Follower on my blog! I really appreciate it! :)

It's so frustrating at times, but God really does have everything under control. Our faith just needs refining. Then we can have that peace beyond understanding no matter what comes our way.

Insurance matters are so frustrating! It takes a lot of strength to trust so blindly. But, it is God that is in control so what other choice do we have, really?
