Waiting Disability Decision

By Carol S., www.PoetryPoem.com/poetryministry    Unlock all Features - Upgrade to Poetry Prime

Lord, when I left my home job in January
I sense You guided me to resign that day
Ongoing mistakes I made in my position
Other factors caused stress and friction

18 months I had tried my best to improve
I was naive to stay after all I went through
You showed me job was beyond my skills
Too fast paced with multi-faceted details

Then You prompted me to file for disability
I gave up at first on application in February
After struggling with some of the questions
SSA letter had March 28 deadline notification

Letter said online application had to be finished
Or else disability claim would not be considered
Wanted me to call to do two more forms by phone
Hard for me that way so printed from website online

Finished everything on time and put them in the mail
Few days later two envelopes with deadline 9th of April
Daily Activities with Symptoms had 34 essay questions
Work History similar form I sent but different version

Mailed forms at the post office on the deadline
Only had about 4 days to complete each time
Deadline based on 10 days from date of letter
I did not receive until at least 5-6 days thereafter

Social security told me when I submitted my application
That it takes about two months to receive their decision
No word yet the end of May when two months rolled by
Then June 8th I got an envelope I thought was their reply

No, it was a request for 2 medical related appointments
Both on June 18th and a form to sign for my commitment
First is 9:15 for radiology then 11:00 doctor exam performing
Different locations with 15 minute check in time preceding

Both appointments will be paid in full by social security
Results will be added and evaluated with my case history
The claims examiner will soon be making his final decision
I will be notified by mail of approval or denial determination

Lord, I praise You for all the ways I have seen You provide
Grant me Your peace on Monday as You walk by my side
I pray that the radiology images will be clear of my back
Also exam and medical records will have a strong impact
Guide the claims examiner that he will make a fair ruling
Prepare me for the outcome by Your hand's clear leading
You understand every aspect of my current financial situation
I know You already have a perfect plan in place for a solution
