February 10, 2016 my beloved drove me to the hospital for an outpatient procedure. We sat in silence for most of the hour long trip. I was anxious yet prayerful.
“Lord my eyes are on You. Please direct my steps and this test today- a skin biopsy. Lord, You created me and You know what’s wrong with me.
Please give me counsel.
Guide me and the thoughts and knowledge of my doctor.
Lord, don’t keep me on a physically fruitless path.
Lord I need instruction.
Your Word says:
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.” (Psalm 32:8).
Lord, what’s wrong with me? Amen.”
Prior to the
“Mrs. White, I’ve been doing some research on what you just discussed with me. I don’t think you need this skin biopsy. Instead we are going to take a different direction.”
A different direction.
My doctor explained in great detail why. I appreciated the details, but on this day the details did not matter.
I had prayed for God’s instruction. I prayed for God to give wisdom to my neurologist. I prayed for God to put me on the right path.
My God answered!
“The Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in Him.” (Psalm 32:10)
God knows what is wrong with me. He will guide me on paths unknown. He will go ahead of me. He will turn my darkness into light. He will guide the wisdom of my doctor. Because I trust in His unfailing love that surrounds me, “It is well with my soul.”
