2020: More Courage, Self-control and Joy-September Edition

September was a remarkably interesting month for me. When it came to courage, I had to rise to the challenge more than once. I had my third orthodontist appointment, and luckily enough my pain from my tooth was improving, so my orthodontist had me continue to wear my retainers full time for four more weeks. We are hoping that this will improve the pain even more. Time will tell.

We were hit by hurricane Sally and it left Pensacola in a mess. The wind howled like a dog as it passed through Pensacola. I tried to remember that God is always with me even in weather like that. During the storm, the holy spirit reminded me of Mark 4:39-41, “He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” Now, I’m not saying that the hurricane was magically going to stop, but to have faith in every situation. After the storm I was without power for two days and I was without internet for over a week. I really had to work on patience because I had a limited data plan. I was behind in my work; however, I am getting caught up.

When it comes to joy, I found that after the storm just connecting to friends and loved ones really helped me get through being grumpy because it was so hot without the air conditioner. Once I got back onto the internet, I felt joy because I did not have to worry about using my data.  I am so thankful that my family and friends are okay from the storm.

How was September for you? Let me know in the comments below.
