You Take Two Steps Forward...

...and three steps back on a journey of a thousand miles


These words are from a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that has been on the "Charlie Playlist" for a while. Today, these two lines have been echoing through my mind.

I called Mass Health this afternoon to check on the status of the fax. I was told by the representative and her supervisor that the denial letter from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care would not be enough. The provider has to apply for prior authorization. So I called The Wound Care Center to plead with them to apply for prior authorization with Mass Health. Unfortunately, they were already closed, so I left a message. I have no idea if they will understand a word of the message since I was crying the whole time.

I believe God has led me to this treatment for KK. I so need Him to finish what He started.


Here are the rest of the lyrics from the song "Finish What He Started":

You take two steps forward and three steps back
On a journey of a thousand miles
And you cry and you pray
But you know at this pace you never will arrive
Well I know in your heart you believed from the start
God had a purpose He knit you together for
But life has pulled at the seams
And you’re unraveling
And you can’t hold it together anymore

But God will, He will finish what He started
No thread will be left unwoven
Nothing will be left undone
Every plan and every purpose
That He has will be accomplished
And God will finish what He’s begun

And it may feel like 40 long days in a hard driving rain
Or 40 years in a dry desert sand
But when He’s finished we will SEE
A beautiful tapestry
And know that nothing has been wasted in the end

Oh, and God will, He will finish what He started
No thread will be unwoven
Nothing will be left undone
Every plan and every purpose
That He has will be accomplished
And God will finish what He’s begun

And we’ll stand as the ones completed
By the miracle of His love
We’ll sing of His goodness and sing to His glory
As we tell the story of how

God has, He has finished what He’s started
Not a thread will be unwoven
And nothing will be left undone
Every plan and every purpose
That He has will be accomplished
And God will finish what He’s begun
I know that God will finish what He’s begun
