He has tried to work tonight. I don't know if he will last the full four hours. It is around 12:30 am here and he is not home yet so I tend to think he will last it out till 2:00 am. My prayer is for safety in driving home.
Something has to be done. I am at my wits end. It would be a relief to me to hospitalize him but I know they do not want to do that unless absolutely necessary. If he loses any more weight I think they WILL think it necessary.
In the meantime, I keep focused on Christ. I continually remind myself of His faithfulness in all circumstances. There has never been a time when He has NOT been faithful. Over and over again in my mind I meditate on His Word which reminds me of His faithfulness. His mercy. His tender care. His great wisdom. His unmatchable power. His great love. His healing touch. His grace which He so richly pours out. The list goes on. Thankfully it goes on.
It has never been more apparent to me how we are like dust...or a vapor which quickly fades. Life is too tenuous. So so precious. Why do we not value it more? Why do we not live as if today is our last day? That today, we could look up in the clouds and see Christ returning. No, so often we go our merry way, oblivious to what the Lord has ahead of us. Anything 'negative' will happen to someone else. Never to us! Oh how sad when we do not live in light of eternity.
Father, I thank you and praise you for being Almighty God, my great Jehovah, my eternal King, Lord and Savior! With You there is nothing impossible. You make flat the mountains, you dry up the water, you bring the water up, you cause the grass to wither, the flowers to flourish. Oh Lord, there is nothing which escapes your eye and nothing which happens without your consent.
Lord, I pray for wisdom for the doctors. Help them, guide them, to be able to make a diagnosis, Lord. Touch Jim's body and begin the healing process. Bring him home safely tonight Lord. May your hand be upon his body. In Your Son's Precious Name I pray. Amen.
