So Confused

I have such a mix of emotions.  On one hand I have learned to be content in the situation God has me in (Philippians 4:11) but on the other hand I long for a husband so much that I start second guessing myself and thinking that maybe I'm not content.  I'm just so confused. 
I know God's grace is sufficient for me (2 Corinthians 12:9) and I know God is my protector (Psalm 68:5).

While I was having my MRI done I was laying there praying thru it and I was praying about a husband and whether or not it was the Lord's will for me to remarry.  Looking around in my life there are no eligible Christian men anywhere which is fine because that makes it very clear to me that God does not want me to remarry.  Then I started thinking maybe I need to be more intentional about it.

Have I mentioned I'm full of lots of mixed emotions.

First Week Update

A month ago I had totally different plans for today.  My plans were to be leaving on a cruise for a week with Mike's family but God had other plans for me when I had that gran mal seizure.
This was my first full week on medication and wow what an adventure it was.  The side effects were interesting.  At first it really messed with my head.  Made my head feel cloudy, hard to process clearly.  Then I got super powers.  My smell and hearing were extra super duper sensitive.  I didn't know how I was going to survive taking this medication the rest of my life with these super powers especially since I was only taking half the dosage right now as I was getting started.  Well, I am happy to report that my body must be getting use to the medication because I don't have those crazy side effects any more.  I am now taking the full dosage of medication and all seems to be going well.
Monday I have an MRI appointment and Thursday I have an EEG appointment.  April 3rd I go back to the Neurologist for my followup to discuss the results of the MRI, EEG and my bloodwork.
Thank you all for your prayers!

Prayer Request

UPDATE:  Thank you all for prayers.  I have an EEG scheduled in two weeks and I'm waiting to hear back to get an MRI scheduled.  When I left the doctor's office yesterday I told the doctor I didn't want to be on medicine but yesterday afternoon I had another "dejavu" episode which has caused Mom and Kathy to be on pins and needles about me having another seizure so I called the doctor today to get a prescription.  I am now taking seizure medication to see if it will help prevent any future seizures or even "dejavu" episodes from happening.

If you haven't already seen on Facebook, this past Friday, Kathy and I were on our way home from work and I had a seizure. Kathy drove me right to the hospital, although she will tell you God drove because she doesn't remember driving - she was so focused on holding me so I wouldn't hurt myself.  It took five people to get me settled down in the emergency room.  I don't remember any of it.
 
While I was in the ER,  they did blood work, x-rays and a CAT scan.  All tests came back normal and I was released about four hours later.

Tomorrow I have an appointment with a neurologist. Please pray that we will get some answers.  I have no idea why I had a seizure and although I don't really remember anything I experienced, I know it was really traumatizing to Kathy and I don't want to constantly have everyone on pins and needles wondering if/when I am going to have another seizure.

I am not worried about dying because my faith is in the work Jesus Christ did on the cross for my sins.  I just want to make sure my life brings glory to God till the very end.


2 Timothy 4:7-8 ~ I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Romans 14:8 ~  For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

John 11:25-26 ~ Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

Ephesians 2:8-9 ~ For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
