You think you got a routine. You are just moving along smoothly when bam something so unexpected comes your way. Life throws us a curve now and then. It can be scary and it isn’t fun but you can be prepared for it. If you have Christ in your life you know where to run for comfort and protection.
Being prepared means knowing without a doubt where our help comes from. Psalms 121:2 says “My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.” He made the heaven and earth so He could certainly help me.
John was in an emergency situation and remains in ICU as of right now. It is hard to see our loved ones ill and in pain. I know where my help comes from but it doesn’t make it any easier to watch. We do have that unexplainable peace, so we keep trusting. Trials can reveal your faith. We are waiting and praying for John to respond and get on the path to recovery.
John has been through much worse than this in his life. A valve in his heart was replaced when he was just 35 years old. In 2003 he had a terrible fall that broke his back in multiple places. The accident made it necessary for them to put a rod in his back, which causes him daily pain and left him paralyzed. God brought him through those tough times and I trust He will again.
John trusts in the Lord and knows he has a purpose for his life. What purpose does this event have? I don’t know yet. I am sure this purpose will be revealed in due time just like the others. Until then we press on with hope and expectation of a new day and John completely healed. Prayers are appreciated for John at this time.
Update: later in the afternoon of October 20th after I wrote this , John was doing much better. He is now breathing on his own and starting to recover.
Thank you Jesus.
