Peace, Faith, Thanksgiving

The things we have to face on this earth can make your throat tighten.

Cancer; Deaths of those we love; Insurmountable Debt; Divorce; Infertility; Depression; Illness; Surgery; Joblessness …

Our minds tend to think about the worst outcome … fear is a normal reaction. But hope is too …

My surgery is today and I’ve had a couple of crying spells thinking about being under anesthesia for 6 hours, but a friend reminded me that my Savior, The King of Kings, was in tears in the Garden of Gethsemane. And He was crying not because of fear but because in His human state he to wasn’t looking forward to pain or being in the hands of others …

So, I’ve regrouped!

I will be anxious for nothing! Even in this surgery I will give thanks for the amazing medical care thanking God with all that is within me that this didn’t happen our beloved Nkwanta.

Lord, be with me. Guide the hands of everyone involved. Keep the minds of everyone clear. The machines, Lord, keep in perfect working condition. Cleanliness in every space. No infection. I claim your peace because I know that beyond anything it will cover and protect my heart and my mind in my Savior Jesus, who is the Christ! Indeed I will submit my heart to you so that your peace, to which I was called, will rule and so that my response to it all will be thanksgiving. Amen

(Philippians 4: 6–7; Colossians 3: 15)

  1. You remain in my constant prayer for a total and complete healing. I stand on 1 Peter 2:24 and Nahum 1:9 “…and this affliction shall not arise a second time.” I rejoice with you in giving God glory.
