One thing I have learned in the last week is the name of the game is “Hurry Up and Wait.”
I tried to explain this to my girls while we were going through tests while at home. I am not sure if I even understood what this t-shirt looked like… I am now wearing it.
Friday, we went back to the GU Clinic to have the one time a week treatment. It was the same story, “Hurry Up and Wait.” We certainly didn’t have anywhere else to be the rest of the day.
It’s a change in mindset. We are learning so much about this.
We were able to see the Oncologist that first met us when we arrived last Saturday here at MD Anderson. He told Kevin he looked to be doing good. His blood results came back good. Praise the Lord!
They said to expect fatigue, and loss of appetite. So far the nausea meds are working great. They should – we have 3 of them! A little lethargy has been apart of our day, which is to be expected. I told Kevin tonight – I will continue to pray that his energy returns but for now – I am praising God that is all we have!
Friday afternoon and Saturday we spent looking at a couple of apartment options. My prayer has been that God would show us with total clarity where He wants us to be. I think He has done just that. I feel good tonight about our decision.
God is constantly revealing Himself to us. This morning as we slept in, which was needed, we started our day together reading scripture. I needed this and I know Kevin did too.
This was our devotional from “Jesus Calling” that we read.
“When you approach me in stillness and in trust, you are strengthened. You need a buffer zone of silence around you in order to focus on things that are unseen. Since I am invisible, you must not let your senses dominate your thinking. The curse of this age is overstimulation of the senses, which blocks out awareness of the unseen world.
The tangible world still reflects My Glory, to those who have eyes that see and ears that hear. Spending time alone with Me is the best way to develop seeing eyes and hearing ears. The goal is to be aware of the unseen things even as you live out your life in the visible world.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Psalm 130:5 “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope.”
I love the line…”The goal is to be aware of the unseen things even as you live out your life in the visible world.”
I want to see the unseen. I want seeing eyes and hearing ears of the Holy Spirit’s movement all around us. These are the things that I depend on.
While looking up some blogs that I try to follow I ran into this song. I have never heard it. But BOY did I feel it was God’s gift today to us! It ministered to my heart in every way today. On the link to YouTube you can see the words to the song. It was perfect for today!
Don’t look to the right or to the left, keep your eyes on me
You will not be shaken, you will not be moved
I am the hand to hold, I am the truth, I am the way
Just come to me, come to me
Cause I’m all that you need
