His Presence


Thank you to all of you who have been praying for me.  I found out yesterday that the last of my medical test results was good!


As I sat in the doctor’s office waiting to hear the final result, I thought about what really mattered most to me...

...it was God’s presence.


He promises us His presence, whether we’re in sickness or in health.   

I’m often reminded of this promise as it’s written on a ring that I wear (on my hand above with my new nephew :).  It says,  

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5)


I thank God for the good health results, but I should also thank Him if they were not good.  My deeper thanks are for His constant presence.    


Lord willing, in these next couple of weeks I'll be preparing to depart again for Mozambique, and just today I read in His Word... 
 
“My Presence will go with you.” (Exodus33:14).

Thank you God.


On a lighter note, I had to be sedated for a couple of my medical tests and after one of them, my first words upon waking were, "Can I eat at In-N-Out Burger?" Apparently I have very profound thoughts when I'm put under…    

The Double-Double at In-N-Out Burger
