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.”

  1. God IS good and we rejoice with your family over this good news!!!! I love the verse you shared…I sometimes see myself in Job’s position and pray that God will restore me to full health. But, if not, I serve a wonderful and mighty Savior who knows what is best for me. And now I will have a certain song in my head all day. LOVE IT!

    Will continue to pray and that He will give you the courage and energy to keep running the race!



    • To God be the Glory for the things He has done and who He is. I still think you should put it all together in a book or some sort of music presentation.
