Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus

I debated on whether or not to blog about this... but if you are here to walk this journey of faith with me then how could I not share it.

This afternoon I went to check my mail with my 3 year old nephew in tow and as we walked back down the driveway I began thumbing through the pile of what usually is just junk and bills. Then I see it. It's a letter from the hospital.

Yeh, that mammogram that I almost walked out on because of pride and idolatry... well it came back with an abnormality and bold print to contact my doctor immediately for further test. Of course added in there is "please remain calm because your abnormality appears benign."

Of course my husband grabbed me and hugged me and lovingly and jokingly told me that I didn't need to worry because I was to mean for anything too bad to be wrong :-)

So now, I sit here tonight awaiting tomorrows return call from my doctor to let me know where I go from here. Where to go in their realm that is. In my realm I ran straight to my Jesus. To my God who is my help. My God who would not let me get my stubborn butt out of that chair last Monday...

Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His word
Just to rest upon His promise
Just to know thus sayeth the Lord
Jesus Jesus how I trust Him
How I've proved Him over and over
Jesus Jesus precious Jesus
Oh for grace to trust Him more...

I am fully aware that this could be absolutely nothing. It could be a simple shadow from the positioning of my body during the x-ray. It could be a non-threatening cyst. It could be cancer. Whatever it could be... whatever it can be... my God is sovereign over it.

I could boldly declare that it shall not be the dreaded "c" word... but who am I that it should not be?

"Then David the king went in and sat before the LORD, and he said,
“ Who am I, O Lord GOD, and what is my house,
that You have brought me this far?"
(2 Samuel 7:18)

My God's grace is sufficient.

"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Yet You have made him a little lower than God,
And You crown him with glory and majesty!"
Psalm 8:3-5

I know that He is with me... always (Matthew 28:20). 

In all things I will rejoice.
In all things I will give thanks.
In all things I will give praise.

I'm so glad I've learned to trust Him. I'm so glad that I'm still learning to trust Him. I am so glad that I have hidden His word in my heart. I am so glad that I know the depth of His love.

Oh precious one... do you know Him? Really KNOW Him? Do you know the depth of His love?
