Thank You for the Prayers

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Thank you so much to everyone who was praying for me yesterday. The surgery went well. Praise God! I have two incisions instead of one, so the doctor must have to do a little something different.

He was going to perform his new procedure where there is only one incision in the navel. He is the only doctor in the area who removes the gallbladder with one incision.

I have an incision in my navel, and the other one is 3 1/2" - 4" to the right (my right) of my navel.

I have some questions for the doctor - my hubby was the only one who was there for the doctor to speak to - and God love him - But he doesn't always get all the info! LOL!

The doctor gave us pictures of the surgery, and there was a bright yellow substance attached to my gallbladder, and my husband said the doctor said something about the substance causing the symptoms I was having. Years ago, a friend of mine had her gallbladder removed, and it was covered with a yellow substance too.

Well, I'm resting, and praising God for His goodness! He is an Awesome God!

I have another blog to post about what happened to me on Friday....He has shown His Mighty protection for me so much in the last few days!!

But right now I'm feeling a little groggy, so I'll come back later.

    Angie I am so glad to hear your surgery went well. I am praying you have a quick recovery and start feeling so much better. I too would want to know what the yellow stuff is and why it was making me sick. Get plenty of rest. Love you emoticon

I'm a little nervous about getting my gallbladder tomorrow. I've had a lot of surgeries, but this will be the first time I will actually have a part of me removed. The other surgeries were all to repair my parts.

Ok, my son just reminded me - I did have my tonsils removed! LOL!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

How My "Wait" Affects My "Weight"

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

My soul, wait thou in silence for God only; For my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: [He is] my high tower; I shall not be moved. With God is my salvation and my glory: The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times, ye people; Pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:5-8)

I have to really get this down... I have had a wonderful breakthrough recently in my personal walk with the Lord, in dealing with an issue that has affected my whole life - how I view myself, how I've allowed the enemy to trick me into viewing myself. It has affected EVERYTHING.....I want this NO MORE!!!

Now - in the last week, I can sense the enemy is trying to "seep" back into my thoughts, to once again trick me into thinking bad things about myself. One of the ways this happens is, I find myself delving into a bag of chips! (I know some may say, don't have the chips in the house - but we live in the real world - it may not be chips, it may be something else, or even someone else that we have to learn to live with) It's kinda like being a Christian, we can't separate ourselves from the world (in the physical sense)- we need to live in it too!

A couple of times this week, I've had a battle with the chips! I think, I will only have a couple - and believe me, it is nothing for me to have eaten the WHOLE BAG! But, I stopped myself, and thought - why am I eating these? Am I really hungry? Or is there a "Hole in my Soul" that needs to be filled?

I don't know about you - But I don't want no "HOLE IN MY SOUL"!!! I want my "SOUL TO BE WHOLE"!!!!

So, I "found" these verses today - Thank You Jesus! And I am making it my mission to wait upon the Lord, and trust in Him at ALL TIMES! I don't need, or want the other "weight". I want my soul to be filled with the Holy Spirit! I don't want a "HOLE IN MY SOUL".

So - I'm MOVING ON! I HAVE to STOP TRYING, and just take one step at a time and DO IT!! I want my "SOUL TO BE WHOLE" This is my new motto, I want to be filled, with no "holes" - so there won't be any "leaks" with me losing the important nutrients that God has given me. Of course, though - I do want to be filled to "overflowing" so that I can be a vessel for the Lord to be "poured out" onto others around me, and to be a blessing to them, and to be a healthy "instrument" for the Lord! Amen, Thank You Jesus!

So - WHO, or WHAT will you be putting your trust in? What, or WHO will you wait (weight) on? Just some "food" for thought....That's where it all starts, isn't it? - In our thoughts?

My soul, wait thou in silence for God only; For my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation: [He is] my high tower; I shall not be moved. With God is my salvation and my glory: The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times, ye people; Pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:5-8)

Forgive me, Lord - But You are "all that, and a Bag of chips" for me! (I sure hope God has a sense of humor)

    Thank you for sharing these verses and your struggle and committment. I will pray for your soul wholeness... I need some of that myself. I feel so drug down lately by life's circumstances that I am forgetting to wait on the Lord.

Amazing Day

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Today was a most amazing day! Thank You, Lord! Even in the midst of feeling like "crap on a cracker" physically (I apologize - hope I didn't offend any of you) It was a wonderful day!

God is Awesome! He's doing some mighty things in my little corner of the world, and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Lord, Just PLEASE keep my eyes and heart focused on YOU! (Because I am a "wayward" one, and I tend to get distracted easily) Oh, and Thank You for loving me just the way that I am, after all - You made me! LOL! (Oh Boy, I have a feeling I'm going to get in trouble for that one)
