Ladies and Gentlemen, you prayed my drain dry! I'm telling you, there is power in specific prayer. Last night I was thinking, "It'll probably be next week before that drain is ready to come out, at the rate it's going." But today, it has all but stopped draining, and I know it's because so many of you prayed that specific request for me. I'm having it removed tomorrow.
I have to tell you something. I LOVE your comments right now. I have always loved receiving comments, but lately, I can hear your heart in your words. You are SO dear to me. In fact, I've saved a pretty penny on therapy by being a blogger :) You have loved me and encouraged me, and mostly prayed me through trial after trial. It's only because of prayer that I'm able to carry on.
I yearn for the day when I don't have to bring my heartfelt requests and concerns before you each day, but today is not that day.
Brian and I are weary, y'all. We are mentally and physically exhausted and we need rest in the worst way. It's weird how this cancer thing works. You run on adrenaline for a few days, and then you get so overwhelmed. We haven't lost faith or hope, but we do need prayer for peace and rest.
Here are my specific requests for today:
- a wonderfully restful night of sleep
- total agreement from all doctors
- divine wisdom for Brian and me, that we would know which moves to make
-The Lord's Perfection - that no wrong decisions would be made
- work issues for both Brian and me. (To answer your question, it IS so hard to be gone so much, especially this year. I have an incredible 2nd grade class. They are smart and funny and witty. And, I think this started out as my strongest teaching year yet. Now, when I'm there, I'm floundering. I'm in a fog, and I can't seem to move into my teaching mode.)
-and last and most importantly, pray that the Lord would supernaturally provide divine health for me, that he would heal me and use me as His vessel to share His power.
