Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Thank you, prayer warriors and partners, for praying for us yesterday. Rob's surgery went smoothly - about 2. hrs - and he came home last night. Recovery is going to be slow, we can see that now - but our Lord brought him through miraculously.
He told me last night, amidst tender tears, that as he was in pre-op, he found himself super stressed. He started to pray - and within minutes, an overwhelming peace came over him. He asked the nurse if she had given him something in his IV. No. He then realized that the Lord and his saints were covering him in prayer, giving him perfect peace. He said after that he had no worries. Never before had he experienced something so hands-on...it really got ahold of him. It reminded me of the verse: "You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you." Isaiah 26:3
Isn't our God wonderful?! How I praise Him for what He has done and will continue to do. We serve an awesome God!
Thank you for your love, encouragement and prayers. James 5:16, "Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working".
We covet your prayers for Rob's continued recovery and healing, as well as the healing of my lungs and body. I find myself singing that well loved little tune, "Keep on believing, God will answer prayer".....it's not over yet. God is still at work.
