I'm having surgery this Friday. I'm pretty nervous about it. I was praying this morning that God would give me some Scripture that would calm my heart. God and I have always had a kind of system when I read the Bible. I don't know if you would call it a system necessarily, but I don't know what else to call it.
Anyway, whenever I really need Scripture to speak to me I ask God to show me something. So I open my Bible where ever and look at the pages. I did that today and He gave me Jeremiah 17:7&8, that's right Mom :) Those verses say "7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
It was just what I needed to calm down. I love how intimately He knows us. I don't know how people do it who don't know Him. When things like this are happening, what do they do? Who do they go to for comfort?
I thought I'd share with you how awesome God is, but I'm sure you already knew that :)
