I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;I will recount all of your
wonderful deeds.2 I will be glad and exult in you;I will sing praise to
your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:1-2 ESV
I received some great news today regarding my father. First, I would like to thank you all for praying for all of us over the past several weeks. It is evident that the Lord works mightily through the prayers of His people!
My mother called today to let me know that the follow-up MRI shows no tumor!!! Praise the Lord! The doctor stated that my dad has a condition where an artery is pushing down on a nerve and this is causing the symptoms that he has been experiencing. Therefore, the doctor believes that all treatment can be completed in Cape Girardeau, Missouri (the city where my parents work). He also believes that it is quite possible for the problem to be treated with medication!
I do thank the Lord also for the conversation that I was able to have with my father while he and mom were visiting us in the hospital. We were able to talk about the majesty and holiness of God. This lead in to a great discussion of God's plan and purpose for suffering and our command to trust in, and exult in the Lord our God. I have never had a discussion quite like this with him. I am so thankful for the Lord opening the door for this!
Praise the Lord!!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
I am working on some posts on hymns, worship, and a few other things...but I can't get to them right now...but check back soon!
