It’s 10 am. I’m still in bed. I hear the rain outside. Gray skies forecast for another week.
Yesterday was awesome. Today? Not so much. Nausea, cramping muscles and wrapped up in an electric blanket. I didn’t sleep well so I’m feeling foggy.
It’s days like this that it helps me to remember these 10 things that the Bible tells me about my God.
1. He cares about me (Romans 5:6-8)
2. He is involved in my life (Psalm 139:1-18)
3. He’s not mad (Luke 15:11-24)
4. He doesn’t make bad things happen to me (Romans 8:28)
5. He’s on my side (Romans 8:31-32)
6. He wants to be my friend (John 15:13-15)
7. He has good plans for me even through tough times (Jeremiah 29:11)
8. He hears my prayers (Psalm 4:3)
9. He’s not hiding Himself (Psalm 22:24)
10. He loves me and doesn’t condemn me (John 3:16-17)
Next Monday I’ll be at Lahey Clinic. I’m nervous about that but also thankful they are getting me in so quickly.
Yesterday I read a story of a man who had a liver transplant and is doing well now. But one thing did discourage me. It said he “couldn’t do all the things he used to do” before his transplant. I’m wondering what quality of life I will have if I do receive a transplant. Will I be a burden to my wife and kids the rest of my life? Will I be able to work and contribute?
Though I’ve joked about wanting to ride around on one of those electric scooters, I really am not at all excited about the prospect.
I guess it’s time to do some research…
Not my will …
