Count it All Joy
I was having this conversation with my grandpa when he reminded me of this passage in James:
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
(James 1:2-4 ESV)
I realized that having faith in God should by no means depend on the outcome of the situation. My faith should be set on my fathers face, not what his hand is doing in my life. He does work all things together for the good of those who love him, but sometimes that good is in disguise.
Lord, thank you for coming through for me once again. Let my body not only be changed for the better from this surgery but my relationship with you also. Thank you for the incredible surgeons and supporting family and friends that you have blessed me with. Help others to see my story, and get to know you more. You are so good to me.
