God is still in Control!

Psalm 20:7   Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.

Well, Wednesday's presentation never happened.  The head cardiac surgeon and the cardiologist that dreamed about Endurance had a (very short notice) meeting with Mike and I.  To put this quite briefly, the surgeon informed us that there is no surgery, except a transplant, that can be done for Endurance.  He, (I won't give his name) gave one more effort to promote the heart transplant, and with our decline, got rather upset and said he needed to bring our case up to the ethics committee.  We are blessed to be part of  Heritage Defense and are presently keeping them informed of Endurance's situation, and if anything comes up with this committee.

After the meeting, I felt like all hope for Endurance was gone.  I had put my trust in the Echo he had on Friday and in the doctors!  I walked in Endurance's room and just cried over him.  It wasn't until the cardiologist came in a while later and apologized for possibly getting our hopes up and that they (the medical staff, not the surgeons) are "not giving up on Endurance."  She said "You can't give up hope.  You need to keep praying for a miracle in his life."  Her words struck me.  We're going through Ezra at church and learning how God uses even the ungodly to perform His will.  And here this cardiologist's words are what caused me to drop to my knees in repentance for losing hope, not in Endurance to get better necessarily, but showing me that God still is, and always has been in control.  He knew what the meeting was about.  He knew what the surgeon would say.  He knows already, the outcome of Endurance's life!

So, in spite of the surgeon's comments, we are further pressing on, depending on God as our refuge and provider.  His grace still abounds in Endurance's precious life.

Please pray for us, Mike especially, as we don't know what lies ahead.  Who knows, but God.

I need to write this again...    Psalm 20:7   Some boast in chariots and some in horses, But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God!!!!!!!!!
