I would like to thank everyone who prayed for me as I was concerned about the problems I was having. I have had my coloniscopy and everything looked pretty good. The doctor did remove two small polyps. One un the upper part of my colin, the other in the lower part. These will be sent off to pathology to determine if everything is okay.
But, all in all — a good report. I was prepared for the worst. So, all is good in Yoder land.
But, I’d like to share a couple of things that I’ve learned from all of this.
1. Why was I worried? If I remember correctly, God IS sovereign over all things. That means He’s going to have His way in my life. If He decides to give me a disease and need to struggle with, He will do it. If He wants me to declare my trust in Him while I struggle with the unknown, He will do that, too. I wonder about myself sometimes.
2. My relationship and conversation with Christ shouldn’t be dependant on the pains or pitfalls of life. While that seems to be the way it is with some relationships, I find myself crawling to Him when I need Him most, not every day. As a sinner, I continue to forget that my life is always in danger. It’s in danger of falling into sin. Unless I crawl to Him each day, how can I be ready for every day?
Well, not very profound, but that’s how I’m feeling at the moment.
God bless you!
