David...I feel your pain!

O lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the upper hand?

Turn and answer me, O Lord my God! Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die. Don't let my enemies gloat, saying, "We have defeated him!" Don't let them rejoice at my downfall.
Psalm 13: 1-4
The above was how my Psalm reading for the day started out...and boy, can I relate to poor old David. You see - we STILL do not have the results of my Sweet Hubby's liver biopsy. Which means we know no more today than we did almost a week ago. We feel...forgotten. I phoned the doctor's office on Tuesday, I was assured the doctor would call us yesterday. No call came. I have already called once this morning, but they are not in yet. I will call again soon. We are waging battle here! The enemy will NOT win!

So as in all things, I turn to the Lord for my strength. I know He will not fail me. And I continued my Psalm reading...
But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me. Psalm 13: 5-6
Ah - there's that word! Unfailing. I love that word. It's a solid word. I know I can count on it, rely on it. Man may disappoint, doctors may disappoint, but my God - well...He's a ROCK and I'm leaning on Him. And the best thing is there's room enough for ALL of us!

G.......It is hard to hear that you are still waiting for word from the doc. My first prayer this morning was for Steve and that the waiting would end soon. As you said, knowledge is power, and the waiting is unbearable.

The prayer for today in The Power of a Praying Wife reads: As for me, I will call upon God, and the Lord shall save me. Evening and morning and at noon I will pray and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice. He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me. Psalms 55:16-18

Love, J
