My Monday morning at our Sneeze & Snooze Clinic started with a string of Medicaid patients.
I have always worried about the financial health of the Clinic when I see patients with Medicaid and other similar insurances, since these insurances do not pay enough to cover the cost of providing care.
Then I remembered a word from the Sanskrit language, Daridra-Nayayan, which means “God presenting as poor.” This concept lifted the veil of ignorance.
Now, I am learning to see God in the faces of these patients. I worry less now. I talk to them with more compassion. My blood pressure and heart rate are lower now. I sleep better too.
I do still work hard and smart. I trust the Lord will keep the Clinic financial solvent. If not, I will SMS for help!
God bless you.
