Yeah! Pre Op is done ...The voice of truth

Yeah I am done with Pre Op and just waiting for April 12th which is my new surgery date. I thought they were going to do another EKG and chest x-ray and all that but they didn't ...yeah...All they did is ask me about 300 questions and took two viles of blood. Easy peasey,I have done it so much I can give blood in my sleep now ..lol I just hate how tight they have to tie the thing around your arm ...that is so uncomfy. I got a very friendly and VERY talkative nurse..lol I think it was driving Guppy crazy but she really put me at ease. My blood pressure was a little higher then normal and my heart rate was raised a little but she said not to worry ...it was probably just be being nervous. You know I pray all the time asking God to give me stregnth and peace ...I pray that I do not have a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind. I read the verses I have highlighted for me through this.I listen to praise music and I know this all helps .. But I really need to stop being so hard on myself and realize that I am HUMAN. I get so frustrated sometimes if my blood pressure is slightly raised due to anxiety...Like I am not being obedient enough or praying enough ... I know God loves me and I know he knows I love him and that is what matters. I know God is full of grace and mercy but my flesh tends to take over at times. This is a good reminder for me. I wanted to share a song that has really been speaking to me the last few days. I have listened to it so many times but the last few days in particular it has really stirred my spirit.

Hope you enjoy it .... :)

CASTING CROWNS LYRICS

"Voice Of Truth"

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. 'Boy, you'll never win!'
"You'll never win"

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!"
And the voice of truth says "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a Sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on tell me
Time and time again "boy, you'll never win!
"You'll never win"

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

  1. Stormii,
    I used to worry a lot about little things, things I had no control over. And when I say worry, I mean WORRY. So much that I would get sick. But then one day I read where God takes care of the birds of the fields, how much more does He care for us. So you know He is going to take care of us. That was the day I quit worrying about stuff. I still have concerns but I try not to let them control my life. I try to let God do that.

    I am so glad every thing is going well for you, I will pray for you just like I said I would.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, I love Casting Crowns. And this is one of my favorite (slower) songs.

  2. see how easy that was!!!
    my oldest daughter had to have her blood tested once every week for a couple of months when she was about 16 or 17, she had a thyroid condition and it took forever to get the right medication. it's never a nice procedure, but it does get easier. stay calm and keep positive, you're almost there.

  3. I think it's time you stopped putting so much focus on the situation. Hand it over to God and let your faith play in his hands. Your in the middle and that is the time we need to have faith the most. Try to spend your time doing and thinking about the great things going on in your life and leave the bad be handled by GOd.

    Hugs
