God is bigger...

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

"God is bigger than the boogeyman, He's bigger than godzilla or the monsters on tv..." That's a VeggieTales song that has been running through my head lately. I have been feeling a lot of anxiety lately surrounding my family. There just seems to be a lot on our plates right now. But I'm trying to remember that God is bigger than them all.
God is bigger than the atrial fib's in my dad's heart that he's going to need surgery for,
God is bigger than the cancerous tumor in poor Sarge's (my parent's 3 1/2 year old dog) leg that is being removed today with prayers that it's only Stage I
God is bigger than the holes in my niece, Juliana's, heart (her slow weight gain is concerning the doctors)
God is bigger than the potential upcoming surgery for my mom
God is bigger than our water heater and clothes dryer that broke on the same day
and God is bigger than my lower back pain.

I am trying to focus on God being bigger and in control of those things, but I also know that He doesn't promise us that life will be easy. I think I know as well as anyone about the fragility of life, and have lost the innocence that "everything will be fine." So if you think of my family, would you please pray for the things I listed above (you can skip the water heater and the dryer because we bought a new water heater and Bill thinks he can fix the dryer :) ). And pray for peace for me, since I get overwhelmed with worry for my family. I love them so much.

Dolly, I have the best Dr.'s. A-fib is not endangering me right now and it is the most common arrhythmia. I've gone a couple of days now without one and I feel good. I will see the Dr. on 9/1 and we will schedule the procedure and the problem will go away. I appreciate the prayers. For those who are reading Jaime's blog please focus your prayers on my baby grand daughter.

Oh Jaime, it all seems overwhelming and my heart aches for you and your family right now. But you're right....our God is bigger and greater than our finite minds can even imagine. We are praying for you and your family. One thing at a time...whew! Keep us posted on Sarge today. On the bright did have enough TP this morning.:) Love you!

Hey Jaimers, I appreciate you worrying for Juliana, which goes to show why I tell everyone about your kind and loving heart. Juliana will be okay. I have faith that God will heal her and she will gain weight. Theresa was always able to get Noah to eat when he didn't want to, and I have faith that she will be able to do that with her since I have to go back to work- ugh.
