I just need to put down in words what is happening. My brother is going to have the whipple procedure next Thursday. I think my bipolar, etc is in action. It is not out of control. Just writing this will help for the Lord knows my heart. I can’t pray in my mind without writing right now. I love you Jesus, My Lord, My God with all I have. I know everything will work out to your purpose. Yet I am worrying about things.
I feel better after talking to my other brother knowing he will be the caretaker for his twin, my brother. I know in my heart the Lord would not give me more than I could handle and He has done that already. My brother just so happened to retire December 30th, also a gift that is a blessing. He said he anticipated he would need to be the one. The Lord also in his perfect will is putting non-believers in my family together with believers.
I thank you Lord in all You have willed to be done, for You are Sovereign. The surgeon is 80% sure he will survive it. My brother will have at least two weeks in the hospital and four months recovery. I have read many testimonies of people who have had this surgery. In fact one of the girls who works where I do is a testimony. She has had the same operation.
I have my friends here, my church, and my brother who retired was a Director in the Behavior Health field.
So Lord it is in your hands, as everything is. I pray for your perfect will to be done. You know my heart, as you know all men’s hearts. Amen!
Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—-Eternal life. (1 John 3:24-25)
Behold the manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it is not known what we shall be, but we know we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. (1John 3:1-3)
