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

  • “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!
I’ve decided that a very wise, strong friend of mine is exactly right. Doctors and medicine are good, but I answer to the Ultimate Healer, and I will not be afraid. Yes, we have been through the ringer. Yes, there are times that we are frightened, and feel alone. But, Jesus has us in his hand. I’m going to enjoy my pregnancy. I’m going to love this baby without any boundaries or stipulations.  I am going to do what Jesus asks of me in complete faith.Jesus has a plan for our family, and I’m putting my faith into his hands… Jesus, You are my Healer. You are more than enough for me. Amen.

  1. “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone! Because I know who holds the future, and life is worth the living just because He lives!” Ken’s favorite song. It has sustained us through many trials.Psalm 139 has been a comfort to me. I’m praying for you, Miles, and sugar dumplin’.
