We’re still trying to figure out Paul’s ‘episodes’ that look like seizures but aren’t. On Tuesday he had an MRI.
These visits never go quite according to plan. We had about a 90 minute delay to get a question answered before they could proceed. And his primary nurse just wasn’t as skilled as she seemed to think she was.
In other words, lots of room for a grumbling heart.
In the middle of our waiting, Dianne mentioned a devotional she had heard based on Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening that had encouraged her. So I pulled out my phone and looked it up. Tuesday’s devotional was on Psalm 84:7 and included this paragraph:
Those with anxious spirits trouble themselves about the future. “Oh!” they say, “we seem to go from affliction to affliction.” Very true, O you of little faith; but don’t forget that you also go from strength to strength. You will never find a bundle of affliction that doesn’t have God’s sufficient grace at the very center.
The desire to fight my sin was re-engaged. And gratitude to God for his Word and for a faithful wife commenced.
