Surgery #4

“For this light momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison.”
2 Cor. 4:17
What a promise and truth we can cling to in these moments of chaos and fear of what is to come. If you have repented of your sins and placed your trust in the sovereign God of the universe, an eternity of all things made right, (because of the blood shed by Jesus on the cross, and His resurrection 3 days later), is what we have to look forward to. Because I am God’s child, I rest in this truth and have been gifted the peace that surpasses all understanding. I am reminded our life is a vapor in comparison to a forever with God. Am I human and shed tears of disappointment? Yes, I have. And then I pray and lay my heart, worries and disappointment at His feet. God graciously gives me exactly what I need to press on with peace and joy. I see past the setbacks and pain, and firmly fix my eyes on an eternity with the Almighty God who is by definition; love, mercy and grace. He is so much more than these character traits, but in this moment, I praise Him because He IS these things, and this part of His nature has given me His supernatural strength to continue on, unafraid. Only by His strength am I full of hope, and hold fast to my Savior.
They restapled my head yesterday and immediately the wound opened and began leaking again. In fact my hair is all wet, and it has continued, so you know what this means, right? 1) God faithfully answered the prayer of wisdom in what to do or how to move forward QUICKLY. 2) I am having the shunt surgery. Hopefully later this week. Please pray it would be soon as I can’t go home until after the surgery/ recovery. No time/ date given. 3) I am smelling more and more like road kill. Back to the second point, they keep me aboard the Kaiser cruise ship. Please be praying for a successful surgery with no complications coupled with a setback free recovery. Pray my doctors, nurses and others around me would see Christ in me and God’s handprint in all this. I am humbled God has chosen our sacrificial, loving family and wonderful church family, Compass Bible Church, to walk through this drawn out, fruitful trial that has given many so much hope. Watching God at work in our life as well in the life of others has been one of the largest blessings to Chad and I. What a gift. Thank you praying friends. We love each and every one of you more than you will ever know. Xo
