As I left MUSC yesterday, I was confused, overwhelmed and more worried than when I got there. I felt like our situation was hopeless, our trip had been a waste, and there was nothing accomplished but adding anxiety. I sat in the car and listened as Miles and my parents talked things over and put a positive spin on things. And then it hit me. I need to change my perspective. I cannot do this without complete faith. I prayed. Lord, please help me. I feel alone and worried. I woke this morning after our visit to MUSC with a feeling of peace and calm. While I don’t completely understand everything that is going on, or the reasons things have happened the way that they have, I have decided that I surrender. I surrender to my Healer. I surrender my fears, questions, and doubts.
As I sat up in bed, I had an old, familiar song in my heart; which added to the comfort I felt. A song that has always meant so much to me, although somewhat “old school”, I love it!
- “Great is Thy faithfulness,” O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
- “Great is Thy faithfulness!” “Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
“Great is Thy faithfulness,” Lord, unto me!
- Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
- Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
