Comfort and Joy

Remember Your word to Your servant;
You have given me hope through it.
 This is my comfort in my affliction:
Your promise has given me life.

(Psalm 119:49, 50)

I’ve received a lot of God’s comfort and joy and faithfulness in the last two months.

On Monday I had minor surgery to biopsy something that ought not to be there. The early doctors’ consultations were not at all good. Because the specialist was out of the country the wait was much longer than I would have liked, but it was exactly the length the Lord planned. That’s how long it took for me to stop listening to the fears and start listening to the promises He has given me. It will still take ten days for the final report, but the surgeon found something fix-able and said these kind were nearly always benign. For that I praise God and am extremely grateful, but more I thank him for his comfort in the night and his assurance that he would never let me go.

I love you, Lord.
