I was reading in Luke 7 on Friday and a passage stuck with me that I want to share.
There was a Roman officer with a slave that was very sick and about to die. The Officer sent men to get Jesus to heal this slave. Then verses 6-10 say: So Jesus went with them. But just before they arrived at the house, the officer sent some friends to say, “Lord, don’t trouble yourself by coming to my home, for I am not worthy of such an honor. I am not even worthy to come and meet you. Just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed. I KNOW this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!” And when the officer’s friends returned to his house, they found the slave completely healed.
I've read this passage several times, but on Friday I started to think about verse 8 when the man says "I know this". He had no doubt. I'm challenging myself with being mindful of when I come before the Lord, I do it without second guessing or not fully believing that He is in control. I've heard lots of people say, and even for me, it's hard to know what to pray for with this situation. I know whatever we do ask, we need to ask with confidence that God knows exactly what's going on and He is in control!
Cale and I have been married 5 years and during our marriage we've both written a crazy amount of love letters to each other. He's been gone a lot so that's been our special thing. Even when he would come home we would still write them to each other. Today I wrote on a paper, showed Cale and wanted to see what he was going to do. He wrote back :) Here is our newest addition to our love letter collection.
I'm not sure what his says, and even though he doesn't know it's a love letter, I'm going to say it is :)
My meeting with the Case Manager is moved to Thursday, so we'll have to wait for any updates with that. Today was an okay day. I feel like Cale was in a weird mood but that might just be me :)
The infection he has, decided at some point to hang on for dear life. They switched the medicine today for 10 days so I'm praying it gets kicked out of him! These yellow gowns are dreadful...
