Lean Not On Your Own Understanding

Is waiting as hard for you as it is for me?!? I am a planner at heart. I love organization. However, God is my Ultimate Day Planner, and I must relinquish all sense of control, in all situations to Him. God asks me to rely upon Him in ALL things, no matter how large or small. I have no control. It is all in His hands, and that's such a good thing!

It's easy to get caught up in wanting to plan for Chrissie's surgery. There's so much to prepare for: the care of our 4 children, our ranch, our pets, meals for the kids, Mattie's birthday on the 27th, appointments, packing to stay at the hospital, getting Chrissie's pre-op appointment, etc., etc., etc.

God says in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in ALL your ways, ackknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Lord, help me to live out this verse by Your grace, in all circumstances, ALL of the time.

For those wondering about the homograft (cadaver part) for Chrissie, we are still waiting to hear whether or not it's a match. The cardiosurgeon reviewed the homograft, but needed a specific answer from the supplier, which he has not received yet. We are hoping that by this afternoon (Thurs.), we will know if it's a match, and I'll update as soon as I know. The surgery will for sure NOT be Monday, Jan. 25 or Tuesday, Jan. 26 because the surgeon is not available either of those days. We must first determine if this homograft is a match, and then we'll look at possible surgery dates. (The cardiologist and cardiosurgeon must also mesh their two schedules together, which adds another complexity.)

But, who's planning here?!? Not me. It's all God! :-)

Thank you for praying.
