Tomorrow is the day my dad gets his second surgery. A lot of mixed emotions and thoughts filled our home today. To know that this will be the last day for awhile until he will be able to be atleast somewhat mobile again.
The hardest thing is that we have to go through all of this once again. Having witnessed the first surgery and the recovery process and to know that it will have to be repeated is a scary feeling.
So I had to make a choice today. If I was going to be sad and let fear and anxiety takeover or be optimistic and make the best of this day. Even though it was hard, through the comfort of the Lord I tried to spend every moment with a positive and joyful heart.
After dinner we decided to go out for some ice cream and spend some time as a family. But on the way my mom wanted to stop by Costco real quick. I really didn’t want to go but we went. My mom and I ran in as my dad, sister and aunt stayed in the car. While we were in the checkout line someone came up and startled me. It was a couple from our church who are close friends of my parents.
When we told them my dad was in the car they asked if they could come pray for him. So we headed out together and they laid hands on my dad and prayed. I couldn’t have been more thankful.
That’s when God spoke truth into my heart. He reminded me that nothing is in our control but that He had all control. He gave me comfort by letting me know that everything is in His almighty hands.
Knowing my dad was in the hands of our Almighty God, why should I be worried. I trust in Him and His perfect ways. I believe from the bottom of my heart that God is with my dad and will continue to be with him through it all. That is why I can say I have peace in my heart. There is nothing more we can do but lean into our God.
I saw God today.
