And the verdict is…

After a couple of days of waiting and admittedly, a little bit anxious, at least in the sense of trying to gear up for what might be “next,” we finally have news from Duke!   And the verdict is, good news!

NO rejection and NO infection!  Praise the Lord for his continuing watchcare!  A big thank you to so many of you who have been praying.  God does still answer prayer and He has seen us through this little setback.  I know there will be more issues in the future, but I keep trusting in Him no matter what happens.  I was ready for the worse case scenario but He allowed us a reprieve this time. 

As Job says,  “Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” Job 2:10b (excerpt)

And to quote Matt Redman’s song, which is also from Job;

“You give and take away, You give and take away, My heart will choose to say, Lord, blessed be Your name.”

While I most certainly thank the Lord for His blessings, I also realize that no matter what I receive from His hand, He is still the same.  His love doesn’t waver, He is still sovereign over EVERY circumstance, and His mercies are new EVERY morning!

Truly we can “Blessed Be the Name Of the Lord” regardless of whether it’s “good news” or “bad news.”
