Day 6 – Wednesday (8/29/18)

The question on everyone’s mind… Did I get a call from the doctor?  YES!

They called to check to see how I was doing post biopsy.  “Booooo…  let down… I can’t believe you just got our hopes up!” says the blog reader.  Don’t worry, that is how I felt when I saw the phone number from the hospital on my phone, just to hear them ask how I was doing.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful they care enough to call and check on me.  Just, given the circumstances, it wasn’t the call I was looking for.  They did check on the status of the results for me, and it said “pending”.  Kinda feels like that spinning wheel of death on computers these days.

I found out today that our plant manager’s father passed away this morning.  I would ask that all blog readers say a prayer for him and his family as they go through this difficult time.  He took off and was on his way to Michigan.

Also, our Wednesday Night Bible study was on the importance and urgency of praying for the lost.  I would also like to ask that everyone join me in praying for them as well.  Ask how God may use you to help reach the lost in your circle.  God may very well be adding an awesome testimony to my story that I can use in the future to help others in similar circumstances who may not know Him.

I had a late night tonight as I supervised my boy mowing our yard after church.  He did a great job (considering his supervisor, haha).  I’m going to cut this blog short since there is not much new news to discuss, and I’m feeling pretty tired.

Dear heavenly Father, thank you for Psalms 27:14 “ Wait patiently for the Lord.  Be brave and courageous.  Yes, wait patiently for the Lord”.  Also thank you for Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.  Having both of these versus show up in family devotions, and passed to me this morning was a true blessing.  Thank you for the open fellowship You and I are having through this process.  It truly helps strengthen my faith.  Thank you for all of those praying for me.  Please be with my plant manager as he traveled today.  Be with him and his family as they mourn the passing of his father.  Please help stir up Your Church with a passion for the lost.  Help us to keep our eyes open for divine appointments that you have made, where we can share the gospel with those around us.  If it’s Your will Lord, I pray that the results would come in tomorrow, and I would get a phone call tomorrow afternoon.  I pray for a good night’s rest.  Thank you for all you do, amen.
