The Waiting Room

3.24.22 The Waiting Room

What do we do when there are no answers… yet?

After the diagnosis, surgery, recovery… now what? We are still waiting for the doctor.. Chemo? Radiation? Or not? 

My wife says, “I am going to trust God moment by moment. I am not going to worry about things that have not happened yet.”

My heart agrees. Jesus said, “Do not worry about tomorrow, for each day has enough troubles. ” Let not your heart be troubled… Trust in Me.”

 I want to trust Him. But my brain is straining, my stomach is in a knot. I want to fast forward to the end of the story…  To analyze possible outcomes… prepare for what might happen if… She has already suffered so much for so long… How will she endure more pain? How will I have strength to keep giving care? How will this change our dreams and plans?

 I can only pray, Lord, show me what You mean when you spoke through Jeremiah, and David, “The Lord is my strength, my fortress, my refuge.” and Isaiah, “Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength…”

How do I see those promises as real? How do I experience You in this Waiting Room? Make my life a powerful testimony to these realities.

I will be sure to share with others how You fulfill Your promises.
