This is a post I put on Facebook in February 2013. It was after the hernia surgery I had that month. I had no idea what was coming; it was only five months before the critical heart issue I had in those Colorado Rockies. https://onetahayes.com/2019/08/18/why-me-lord/
Hey, I’m sliding into home base! I get the hardware (staples, drains) removed tomorrow, I hope. Gaining weight, hoping I have at least 8 pounds of hardward to remove. Probably, an ounce and a half. Was it worth it? I am thankful to report that I’m doing well. Thanks for prayers. But my problem is not just physical, so keep praying! I sure won’t willingly say you can be free from praying for me! I’m anxious to get a routine which is more satisfying that my last year has been. But for some amazing reason, I say it was worth it. Beats me how God does that. Not only is his grace sufficient, it is abundant! Facebook Feb ’13
After all these months (years) of illness and accidents, I still am amazed how the Lord brings me through the rough stuff. Every time He proves himself more and more abundant in his goodness, love, and mercy.
What a bland life for those who know only wealth and good health. No wonder their search for significance is turned to gathering more wealth or find fame in some other way.
He is the greatest of adventures; the greatest of guides; the greatest of comfort, peace, joy….
His grace is all sufficient. I am in need right now. I’m turning my mind to see what He works out.
I wrote this last week before I knew I was going to be in the midst of a new crises so soon! I appreciate your love, concern, and prayers.
