Tonight’s post will be quire short. It has been another difficult week with health issues much like what has been going on for the past month. I believe heart problems have been ruled out and the pneumonia is now gone. But there still are some things happening that cannot be explained. Had my follow-up visit with my primary care physician and he has referred me to a GastroIntestinal Specialist. I had an appointment with him on Thursday and now have been scheduled for an upper GI scope procedure commonly know as an endoscopic inspection. This will be a look down my esophagus and into my stomach and hopefully the real problem can be found. Please pray that it will be so. So much to do and so little time.
Even with all the health stuff happening, an untimely death of a friend we have been praying for, and then throw-in all of the rain we’ve seen, God has still taken care of me and my family and all of the other friends I have. Not one time has He left my side but there is no doubt that I have left Him out through some of all of this. And as I have sat down to write this post and reflect back on the week, I have realized again how he uses the negative events in our lives to make us stronger. He has been taking His time to teach me things along the way. I think it might be worth reminding of all of us of a couple of those things.
Number one. If we place all of our faith and trust in Him then we are guaranteed that all of the promises that He has ever made he will keep. He has told us that He will never leave us or forsake us and in addition to that he has promised that He will make all things work together for good for those of us who love Him and are the called according to his purpose. In spite of how we may let Him down, He is always faithful in His wonderful promises.
And number two. He tells us that the good work He has begun in all of us He will continue and then will complete one day. For all the failures that may we have had in our lives He will remove them as wood, dirt and stumble and they will be destroyed forever. As my pastor has said numerous times, He what will call us up, clean us up and then we will live forever with Him as His adorned bride. What A Day That Will Be!
