Lord, Jehovah, God of Healing, we come to you today, to lift up a dear one who needs You.
You knit each of us together in the womb. You know every cell in our bodies and the whole path of our lives.
Nothing comes as a surprise to You, Creator God of all things.
You are not bothered by technology, or our time table. You already know the grace that this dear one needs today, tomorrow, and in the future.
You already know the outcome of this situation, and are prepared to meet every need.
Oh, dear Abba, this dear one needs to know that and feel that today. To know that before this medical problem even came up, that You were already there, preparing the way, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Dear Father, it is so hard not to lean on our own understanding. We try to plot every possible scenario, and fix everything. We are so frail, and so human.
Yet all this time, Lord, You have been carrying this dear one. There is nothing to plan, to fix, to figure out. When you are in the Shepherd’s arms, you do one thing – rest!
Lord Jesus, help us all to “be still and know that you are God.” The God of our cells.
Lord, You confound the wise. Right now, what seems like an undeniable, scientific medical fact, is an opportunity to confound the wisdom of science with a good result on this medical test. We pray for that.
|My Son Nick|
Big news! Tomorrow I will be testing for my Extra ticket…..but the bigger news is that my 16 year old son – Nick – will be testing for his Technician!
He has been studying for about 6 weeks off and on – you know how teens are. We have spent time talking about things that he needed to actually see – instead of just read from a question/answer pool or a book.
Anyway, I am more nervous for him, than I am for myself. He basically got me motivated to study as well for my Extra, but I want him to pass more than I want to pass!
So say a quick prayer for Nick, that he would remain calm and PASS!
In other news….I worked W1AW/7 WY last night on 40 meters with 5 watts. He was operating split, so I dug out the KX3 manual to figure out how the dual watch/split operation worked. It took me about 45 minutes of playing, but one I figured out that I just heard the guy he worked, I snagged him! That was the only contact last night on 40 – and once again it was about 12:30 am local (0530 UTC).
Tomorrow I go for my blood test. It’s a very simple blood draw and then I go home and wait for the phone call. With Michael, it came minutes after I got home and with my last pregnancy, it took them all day to call. So, tomorrow will probably be a long day. I am hopeful but cautious. I keep thinking of the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and how they believed God would save them from the fiery furnace. I also think about them saying that if He chose not to save them, they would never stop believing Him. My prayer is that no matter the outcome, I will find my rest in Him and that no matter what, my faith will continue to be strengthened.
I love the song Broken by Lifehouse. I heard it for the first time the night I found out I would lose the twins. The pain in the song was so reflective of how I felt. But, if you listen to all the lyrics, the song is also hopeful. I heard it yesterday and this part resonated with me:
In your name
I find meaning
So I’m holding on (I’m still holdin on)(I’m holdin on)
(I’m still holdin on) (I’m holdin on)
I’m barely holding on to you
I’m hanging on another day
Just to see what, you will throw my way
And I’m hanging on, to the words you say
You said that I will, will be okay
So, until tomorrow….
