And The Winner Is...

...God. As usual! :-)

Just got my biopsy results back, and everything was benign. Thank you to those who prayed; I needed those prayers. The test--thanks to my body's propensity toward the abnormal--was difficult and painful. But God, who sustains us at all times, was very present in those moments. May His glory increase... :-)

My recovery, though not yet complete, is already way ahead of where I was a few years back when I had something similar done, so praise Him for that too! :-)

Blessings,

Psalm 100
A psalm. For giving thanks.

1 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
3 Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.


From Isaiah 40:
18 To whom, then, will you compare God?
What image will you compare him to?

21 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

25 "To whom will you compare me?
Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One.
26 Lift your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one,
and calls them each by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

Our God's immensity is unimaginable, but our Lord's tender care is what's truly beyond comprehension. Glad to hear you're mending.
